    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Great company, good leadership, excellent leadership development and career development programs. Excellent mission overall at all levels. I work in compliance and thoroughly enjoy working with the professionals in my department and across all functional areas every day.

    Cons

    Not really a 'con', but something to be aware of: because of the critical nature of our mission, Lockheed is heavily process oriented. There are many procedures, quality checks, reporting processes, and other administrative requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that there needs to be a more near-term career path for young professionals. Many recent graduates find themselves in departments with quite a few 30-year veterans. While this is great for mentoring, it limits near-term advancement potential unless the young professional has a strong career development plan and is willing to relocate.

    Pros

    Challenging tasks. Worldwide travel. Cutting edge technology. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Advancement of unskilled engineering professionals to technical management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time in current employees, whom have vast amounts of experience, and have been instrumental in Lockheed's successes, versus (overly) focusing on hiring and promoting new, very young talent.

    Current Employee - Subcontracts Manager in Moorestown, NJ
    Current Employee - Subcontracts Manager in Moorestown, NJ

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

    Pros

    All the benefits of working for a big company like training opportunity, lots of locations if you're willing to move, plenty to do if you want to try something new. Very good flexibility (everyone gets a laptop and full flex hour control). Pretty good school reimbursement program given most companies are eliminating this now.

    Cons

    As with any big company the bureaucracy is insane. Also take into account the customer (military) so in most cases LM ends up mirroring that type of infrastructure.
