    Pros

    Gained great experience working with a talented group of analysts. The business was very diverse as well, so it was a good experience to learn from.

    Cons

    The pay was below average especially in the Sunnyvale, CA area. I was required to work late and on some weekends throughout the year to meet management deliverables, which were at times, very redundant.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your high potential employees more and find ways to streamline redundant reporting.

    Pros

    Company has a great reputation. It provides a lot of resources for an employee to grow if they want to.

    Cons

    On the program level (program facing customer), we don't feel like we are part of LM corporate and there is a divide.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the contract management office central (in Lockheed Martin) and not within the program. You will have much better control of things when they go wrong.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment as in working from home

    Cons

    If you had to pick one I'd say the work is a little unorganized with requirements being a little vague.

    Pros

    Lockheed's benefits are great specifically the amount of vacation time (3 weeks a year plus floating holiday), 9/80 work schedules, and flex time.

    Cons

    A lot of what lockheed does revolves around antiquated technology and there isn't much opportunity to make a lot of money early in your career.

    Pros

    There is a great training program and they offer quite a few certifications to obtain for free.

    Cons

    The leave benefits are not typical of your typical full-time job but the health care benefits are very good, although expensive.

    Pros

    Lots of different opportunities, different geographic locations, different skills to learn, products to work on. Experts in all different disciplines across the company. They pay for graduate school.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost or overlooked unless you're outspoken, marketing yourself within the workplace, or you happen to have a great manager. The company is not big on taking risks. The defense industry can be a somewhat stifling for creativity, new technology. Health benefits have gotten worse over the last 5-6 years. Salary is not as high as other industries. Corporate culture is all about "diversity" and other buzzwords and being politically correct.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and empower your employees.

    Pros

    Good Networking, Intern-focused culture. Relatively competitive intern pay.

    Cons

    Red-tape; bureaucracy, layoffs, uncertain future with loss of contracts. Wouldn't say that it's the greatest ethical company, given it's history
