    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Lockheed has many opportunities for different types of work. If you've got the ability then they will have opportunities to work. Most positions have a very flexible work schedules. For being a large corporation they try to make sure employees feel valued.

    Available work within Lockheed core locations are plenty

    Cons

    It's still a corporation and employees can easily fall through the cracks if they work outside of LM facilities.
    Available Work outside of Lockheed core locations are sparse.

    Pros

    Raise every year, management bends over to help

    Cons

    You get a little lost if you work off site as a contractor, and I hate their insurance with Atena

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the best in engineering where everyone is willing to help you improve. Many tools are offered to help you learn and keep up with the latest technology.

    Cons

    Does not seem like an easy place to move up quickly. Will have to put in a lot of time to move up a level.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    If you have any background in Military Aviation then this company makes you feel right at home. Some policies change but overall amongst the ones that matter terminology and practices remain. The pay is good compared to other companies in the same market and the ability to work as much as you want is there.

    Cons

    Sometimes you may feel as if your stuck in the advancement department waiting for higher positions to open up. The Union for the mechanics isn't flexible enough for all the locations of its members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing bad to say about the management as a whole. Only advice I'd give is to set a standard that everyone adheres too. There is too many different management techniques being applied to the same group of workers.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have one of the best bosses I have ever worked for. The pay is good for the job I perform. They offer upward mobility for personnel as positions open.

    Cons

    The only Con I have is the timecard system, it is not user friendly and hard to enter corrections. There aren't any other cons that I can think of.
