    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have great benefits regarding vacation, medical, insurance, tuition reimbursement, available training, etc; culture is very diverse and upbeat; seems to always be a new challenge and way to grow

    Cons

    You may lose your individuality and creativity at this company. Masters and Doctorate not necessarily appreciated. Good Ol Boy System still in play more than the individual(s) that made the true difference.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very good, people are professional, intelligent, educated and try to do a great job. Ethics are important to the company and therefore, to the employees. Upward mobility is possible if you learn the Lockheed way, work hard, perform above expectations and work on high profile projects--where management pays attention.

    Cons

    The company is so large that they need lots of policies and procedures and metrics to manage the place. Sometimes metrics are one-size fits all, even when the metrics don't apply to the work you're doing. It is a very large company and is difficult to get recognized if you're doing routine, mundane work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance between metrics and judgment when assessing the employee's performance is necessary. Metrics cannot account for all the work done by a buyer.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary ranges. People on the floor up to supervisors are good teams for all production goals.

    Cons

    Production floor is barely controlled chaos. Upper management tries to drive the production floor by numbers rather than embracing the human element that leaders should consider.

    Pros

    Good Pay and Benefits, and Overall Relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    Lay-offs, adversary attitude between union and company. hard to advance with in the company based on experience, only quality desired is a degree from university.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you miss out on opportunity by not considering those with out degree, although you invest in workers by refunding then for their education cost. you do not promote them for their efforts and assure they will work for you when finished, there for you train another company's worker.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a retired military veteran, to work on a 5th generation program, gave me pride and the feeling that I was still contributing to the war fighters.

    Cons

    Lockheed has a tendency to place people in management positions that have little or no aviation experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize your resources. The best ideas and processes come from those, on the floor with hands on experience.

    Former Employee - Systems Administrator Staff in Fort Worth, TX
    Former Employee - Systems Administrator Staff in Fort Worth, TX

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

    Pros

    Really enjoyed working with the non-management staff many of whom had been there for many years. Split work week, nine hour days, so you always have every other Friday off. Work from home is super easy and just as connected to the folks in the office. Great relationship with key vendors.

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy on documentation. Simple IT change management approval can take up-to a month. The five bosses rarely got along or agreed on priorities for employees (multiple direct line managers isn't the norm at every location). When reporting on successful tasks completed for boss A it wasn't uncommon to have boss C yelling belittling remarks just to appear better than A.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ignoring reports of aggression in a work location affects the whole company. Would have loved to stay but the stress was unhealthy.
