Great way to start my career - company really believes in its engineers and supports them.

Staff Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Rockville, MD

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

ProsTons of leadership training, ability to transfer within the company, solid and clear path to promotion, especially at junior levels. Met some great managers and engineers. Strongly motivate leaders to mentor others and it is a team atmosphere, not competitive within. Definitely recommend, especially to young career folks or those who like the structure and stability of a large company. Plus the stock has been killing it lately in the market.

ConsFederal budgets are declining and therefore LM budgets too - they have been tightening belt and doing layoffs. Not a fast pace of change. Depends on what work you do and what you're interested in, but I never really liked the whole "blowing stuff up" part of the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementIS&GS policy on telecommuters paying for their own travel took this high-pot outside the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good with just a few rough patches.

Systems Engineer, Senior Staff (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 10 years

ProsReasonably well run company. Variety of work. Great colleagues. Interesting projects. Lots of training and educational support. Pay and benefits better than industry standards.

ConsStill kind of an old boy's network. Uneven advancement. Placement of employees exposed by project contractions is poor. Highly expert specialists are considered a burden to programs.

Advice to Senior ManagementSay what you do, do what you say.
