    Pros

    Massive company with lots of reach back. They do some pretty cool stuff and it's interesting to get exposed to it all.

    Cons

    Massive company, you're a cog in the machine. They're tenacious about pursuing business and expect a lot of their Biz Dev staff.

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

    Pros

    Systems are technically advanced for an enterprise organization, technology consumption is huge which opens vendor doors wide, the company's heritage precedes you and usually establishes a level of credibility that can only be lost.

    Cons

    The company was rampant with politically correct position holders with lots of cover for inept decision makers, difficulties in attracting and retaining high-caliber junior staff result in some mediocre work getting passed in order to stick to schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget diversity, value results.

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

    Pros

    LockMart's the biggest defense contractor, and generally does well in both boom and bust cycles. It's a big company, so there are the usual big-company perks. Plenty of room for advancement and a lot of opportunity for internal moves.

    Cons

    It's a big company. Just read pretty much any Dilbert cartoon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your people are smarter and more mature than you give them credit for. Mostly.

    Pros

    Interesting programs and projects. The company is always on the cutting edge.

    Cons

    Changing retirement and medical benifits every few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more and listen from the bottom up. The people at the bottom know a lot more than you give them credit for.
