  1. Very challenging jobs, but the advancement opportunities are there if you search for them and work hard.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement, travel, and training.

    Cons

    Forced Diversity is killing opportunities and slowing progress...

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your ethics and morals - push back on Corporate initiatives regarding forced Diversity - it's not only wrong on moral level...it's slowly killing the company!

    Pros

    Work schedule is good (every other Friday off), pay and insurance benefits are excellent, company culture is friendly and fun, company is generous and wants their employees to be happy.

    Cons

    Most departments have senior managers with 20 or more years and there is very little room for advancement or leadership potential. What you get is a salary bump and a fancier job title but nowhere to advance because managers remain in their jobs for decades. Most employees are in their 40's and 50's.

    Advice to Management

    Mandatory retirement at 25 years; get rid of the dusty old managers and keep the younger generations moving upward. Give your employees a reason to hope.

    Pros

    You'll be given a lot of responsibility and opportunity to learn early on. Benefits are unmatched (flex time and every other off-Friday, for example).

    Cons

    Government contractor so the goal at the end of every day is to reduce the cost to the customer. Day-to-day this means working in close quarters with your peers in out-dated cubicles.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that satisfying the customers' wants is always of the utmost importance; however, I think that the employees' wants are not considered as often as they should be in order to maintain a satisfied, steady workforce.

    Pros

    Good benefits, steady job, awesome product

    Just as much bureaucracy as the government, promotion based on time served, not results or capability

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the bureaucracy where possible, promote when ready

    Pros

    Work Life Balance has good days and bad days. Depending on your team it can be good. Good benefit packages. 401K matching is good. Plenty of areas to grow.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Hard to gain technical experience as a young employee when half your work is merely to satisfy process. Get in a bad group, you will be miserable. Culture encourages mid-level leadership to hide failures because help provided is too much.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline tools to actually help lighten work load. Make metrics collection automated across the board.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good employees can expect to work there as long as they want.

    Cons

    Lockheed usually deals with large projects that move very slowly, good old boys environment. In rare instances the environment may not be friendly to minorities. The secure environment and the badge in, badge out gates feels confining. Military culture where upward mobility is more based on years of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to promote young talented employees
