    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great experience to grow and move about. Nice diversity and opportunity to work with people of all ages and backgrounds.

    Cons

    The best talent does not stay long. Experienced professionals come from other competitors and not from within the company. Training for employees is not as frequent or available as before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change with the environment. Defense budgets are shrinking. Need to pursue more commercial markets. Create more opportunities in finance, banking and health and medicine.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Working there will allow you to move into different and challenging positions. You can also work at different location around the world.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges in working on some programs is that the contract you are working on can come to a close at which time you have to move on to another program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management have to help employees find another assignment for the employee to work particularly when a contract is coming to an end.

    Pros

    Work on cutting edge science and technology. Learning best practices that will be hugely beneficial in the future.

    Cons

    Large company. Business cycles usually lead to mass hirings followed by mass layoffs. This promotes a very stressful work environment during those times.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Telecommute, great hours (over-time is a rarity). There is always an effort to train.

    Cons

    Must be willing to live government contract to contract. Always have a resume ready. If you're not billable you're at risk; if there are budget issues, you're at risk.

    Pros

    Make good money. Had fun. it was great coming to work every day. Kept really busy!!!

    Cons

    Management shifted or moved on else where. People filled in their positions that just didn't care at all about the dedicated employees. Went downhill after that with all the lay offs.
