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

    Pros

    The people are wonderful. Extremely helpful coworkers who never say no to a request for help. Nobody hides behind voicemail/email, like every other company for which I've worked. Excellent opportunities to learn new things everyday. Pay and benefits are top tier. Work/life balance is best I've ever seen. Veteran recognition is outstanding.

    Cons

    Some of the process is very rigid but it just takes some getting used to. Not necessarily a con but probably the only thing I can say that comes remotely close to a negative

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Clearly, it works.

    Pros

    World Class Product, the best training and support, so much available to the employees, newest equipment and technology, the best of the best

    Cons

    Unfortunately a couple of really bad managers, putting their personal gains above "doing what is right, respecting others, and performing with excellence"

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs to flush out the few bad apples, again its a great company but a select few are grossly abusing authority

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Big company, lots of job openings and easy to move around to other programs or locations if your manager is well connected (which mine was). For the most part, I always enjoyed the work I was doing, and my specific manager was great for career planning. Even though I'm not part of the company anymore, he is still my mentor and we talk regularly. Good 401k benefits, not sure that's still true for brand new employees.

    Cons

    I worked in a team environment, with Lockheed as the prime and Boeing and others as subs. Lockheed's compensation was average for the industry, but lower than its partners. It can be easy to get lost in a big corporation, and can be very frustrating when you don't get to share in the success of the company (no annual bonus based on company performance). They're very stingy when it comes to happy hours, christmas parties, general employee social events, but that's also not necessarily how you judge a good company.

    Advice to Management

    Give more power to lower level managers. My manager had to get 5 approvals to get someone a $3000 raise.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well-known aircraft company with multiple areas of expertise. Good possibilities for promotion and relocation. Friendly, knowledgeable co-workers and managers. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Not too many opportunities for advancement without having to relocate to another state. Limited time government contract(s). Program Management Office in Maryland not understanding the customers in supporting states like Oklahoma, Georgia, and Utah. Relies on too many one-year temporary employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire well-qualified temporary personnel within a specific time frame. Upper management should get out to the other states' sites and talk with all the customers to gain a better understanding of what they expect and how the program is performing.
