    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I get paid weekly, and they have a good HR Department.

    Cons

    They give you very little vacation time, and their benefits are very average, at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much micro managing.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, great benefits, flex hours, great work location

    Cons

    The workload was heavy and the work days were long. There was no formal training so I was forced to learn on the job. My manager was always on travel and was difficult to reach. Coworkers were dog eat dog and difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer training to new employees that can benefit both employees and the company. Work with employees to provide certifications that are required by the client (example: PMP).

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are one of the biggest contractors in the Government why many positions to offer at competitive pay rates.

    Cons

    Very confusing business practices that create communication issue between coworkers and management. Very poor health insurance and vacation benefits and very minimal incentive bonuses and raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro managing and delegating all your work load and just hire more workforce with less management and assistant managers. Lockmatin concentrates to much at the management level instead of the true workforce doing the work that way downsizing because wages wont be needed.
