    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 have been working at Lockheed Martin (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Once within the company, and doing a good job, there is ability to move laterally, or up. Good pay and overall benefits.

    Cons

    None at this time. Although, I am not partaking in certain benefit packages, there could be improvement in that arena.

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

    Pros

    The defense of our nation is at stake and this company addresses real defense needs for our country and many others with cutting edge technology. IO slept easier at night knowing how I was part of something good and much larger than myself.

    Cons

    Any large corporation has a lot of moving parts and may not be easy to find your organization structure.way around. LM was the largest company I had ever worked for and took a lot of effort to understand the ever changing organizational structure.

    Advice to Management

    simplify
