    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for Lockheed provided me opportunities for growth both professionally and personally. The atmosphere was positive. It felt like more than just a job. You worked with cutting edge technology and were valued as part of a team.

    Cons

    A down side is your job position can be impacted by contract awards. One minute the funding can be there for some time and then the next minute there is no longer any funding for the project you are working on.

    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 have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Company treats me right. My management chain is all about ensuring my group has the right tools and knowledge to do the job.

    Cons

    Nearly no positions in the New Orleans area so I have to leave the company once this contract is over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing because it is clearly going great...and get some more work in the Greater New Orleans area!

    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Best global security and defense company on the planet, they take pride of workmanship, develop the best and most complex technologies, and they are straightforward with Customers when there are problems without sugarcoating or waiting to hide the problem.

    Cons

    The IS&GS division acts more like a blue collar IT and software house where people are treated as expendable, replaceable, and the technology is really not so amazing that the next IT company couldn't come along and take that business away easily, so costs have to be rock bottom, not the most motivating environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are your best assets, and should be treated as such, with respect for their aspirations and interests.
