    Pros

    Very diverse environment and great place to learn. There is a great work-life balance and flexible hours.

    Cons

    No upward mobility. There is a lot of process and documentation that you must go through to get the smallest things changed, although the processes that needs changing, is to better process improvement.

    Advice to Management

    I would like for management to have some type of idea of what tasks and daily processes the "worker bees" complete. We are judged by performance against our peers but if management doesn't have an idea what you do (besides what you tell them) how can they fend for you to get a raise when they are just reading your words.

    Pros

    Lockheed Martin Mission Services has flexible schedules and good management. I have been through three contract changes with NASA - Johnson Space Center. Sub-contractors are treated with equal respect.

    Cons

    Benefits are generally reduced with each contract bid, every 3 to 5 years. Pensions are now on the way out. It seems as though management just wants to make a buck. Each contract change involves, NASA farming out prime contractor employees to sub-contractors with reduce benefits without additional pay to compensate for increased medical premiums. Seems like a government game to check some compliance boxes - which is not a Lockheed Martin problem.

    Advice to Management

    Stop reducing benefits and provide consistency throughout the organization.

    Pros

    Fun, challenging work as a part of an integrated project team Nice balance of energetic young people and experienced workers

    Cons

    HIGH turn-over and mass lay-offs and hirings as contracts are won and lost

    It's worth it to keep more experienced workers around, even if you need to pay them a bit more.
