    Pros

    Great Benefit package Health Dental and 401K

    Cons

    Lockheed has grown too large to care for it's employees. There is no loyalty from management to the individuals who perform the work and keep them employed on a per contract basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and stop blowing your own horns. When your lead rallies the team to accomplish great tasks, your taking credit for the accomplishment only shows what a poor leader you are, and your failure to communicate with the personnel makes me wonder why you are in the Communications Industry to begin with.

    Pros

    there is not much good to report on the Lockheed Martin of today. Once an outstanding company to establish a career.. no longer the case.

    Cons

    advancement is very political... it's all in who you know. Management does not take kindly to outsiders (incoming from other programs) joining their team. There isn't any teamwork at the Huntsille site. Everyone is out for themselves in fear of job security. Non military employees only have one option in Healthcare. The Company is NOT what they used to be and it shows in the morale of the employees. A non-inclusive environment.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Decent benefits. Opportunities for growth and differentiation as long as you are willing to put in the work and time.

    Cons

    Change is slow, which is expected for a multinational company. Management is sometimes out of touch.Company wide policies may not be applicable or relevant in certain divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep employees in the loop. Having meetings and webcasts for broad ideas and changes is great, but it might be a good idea to give more granular updates on issues so employees and team members are not surprised at new developments.

    Also, if you want your employees to stay healthy please allow for some time during the work day to work out in the onsite gym. Asking them to stay healthy and then criticizing them for doing so during the day is counterproductive. Most people have families and taking care of things at home may not let them have dedicated gym time.

    Pros

    They have such a large amount of resources that are there to help you perform and succeed.
    There are so many groups that you can join and grow yourself as a professional.

    Cons

    It is a large organization so it cannot move at the speed of a small business. It can be tough to deal with the red tape although it is the strict regulations that make their products superior.
