    Quality Organization

    Program Manager (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsLockheed Martin has to be the top defense contractor to work for in the country. They establish the baselines which all others follow from Capture Management, Program Management, Engineering practices, to the finance world. I will say the thing that most impressed me is the opportunitee to learn and be mentored by quality people. I would have never left had it not been for a family situation.

    ConsAt some of the customer sites, the working conditions are not ideal. The company also tends to be quite conservative on the business development side.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn order for LM to be competetive in the world market, the company rates need to come down. Due to pension payments and other overhead, rates are generally high depending on the company within LM. Continue to strive at bringing your rates down.

    Good Internship Opportunity

    Finance Intern (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsWorked with the a good team wrapping up the finance end of a program. The coworkers were professional, helpful and cared about your success. Fair compensation.

    ConsThe largest issue for me was understanding the government system of recording costs, along with acronyms for everything. It was somewhat disorganized at first, but quickly improved.

    Great place to transition from active duty military

    Senior Systems Administrator (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsIts a good place to get education benefits, plenty of challenging work opportunities, very friendly to transitioning military. Very thankful for the lessons I learned during my time there.

    ConsDon't go there expecting them to do right by you, expect to have to put up a fight for your self or they will take advantage of you. Upper management suffers from the Good old boy system. Low pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet more in tune with your employees.

    Well organized internship program.

    Engineering Intern (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsInternship program is well organized. People and mentors are very helpful and open.

    ConsGovernment contracting isn't my cup of tea. Working on an Air Force base is a pain, required a security clearance, lots of on-site security.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
