    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible hours(as long as you work your full 9 hour shift) Interesting projects, and getting to work with brilliant minds. If you want to work towards a different/better position, they are helpful in that.

    Cons

    If a project hits, with a short deadline, you will be working long hours and weekends. Most projects seem to be this way.... so you end up working over 40 hours weekly. There is a lack of young people, and a lot of policies that make things difficult. Middle management is looking to move up, so often they are looking out for themselves more than those below them.

    Advice to Management

    Work towards moving the company into this era. Just because things have always been a certain way, doesn't mean they should stay that way. Find a way to make young people stay.

    Pros

    I enjoyed doing research as a member of the Lockheed Martin team. At times we were under very short deadlines, but it was very gratifying to always come thru for the client with excellent results.

    Cons

    Lockheed Martin has a bad reputation of laying off people. Typically a program’s budget is cut and so is the staff. No help in relocating within the company to a different division. I was there for seven years giving everything I had for LM only to have the rug pulled out from underneath me with no warning. The process is very sterile, plus you have to sign your rights away if you want their severance package of three weeks. Most large corporations will provide at least six months of severance.

    Advice to Management

    Have some compassion for your dedicated employees. Only dedicated people work for LM. Step up to the plate and do more when it comes to having to laying off people or a whole program staff.

  8. A great company fully invested in their employees.

    Pros

    Upper management always interested in employee feedback, new ideas and works to implement the best of those into operations. Everything extra you give is valued.

    Cons

    There are no downsides to working at Lockheed Martin, except that the workload never lets up, which indicates the interest in our programs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the great job that makes Lockheed Martin stand out as an exemplary company with a growing Energy Services division.
