    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Orlando, FL

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

    Pros

    Lots of really talented people, a lot of learning opportunities as an intern. Lunches with management and discipline specific speaker series. Hands on experience working alongside full time engineers. Mentorship program.

    Cons

    Lot of red tape to go through to get anything done, I guess this goes along with the industry and nature of the business. My program had mandatory overtime, seems like work/life balance might not be the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the proper amount of man power is put into programs. The reason a program is missing deadlines may be that there aren't enough people working on it.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Big company benefits; ability to move between projects and locations. With offices in essentially every state, it is possible to find internal job postings that match your career aspirations as well as your locale preferences (e.g. east vs. west coast, north vs. south, etc.)

    Cons

    Usual big company drawbacks such as communications between groups that are spread across multiple buildings and locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hard for me to recommend a change to company strategy. Seems like all is going well
