    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Like-minded employees who are easy to get along with.
    -Good benefits such as getting educational degrees paid by the company.
    -Work-life balance: flexible working hours and plenty of vacation time.
    -Up-to-date technology: Using Visual Studio 2013 and .NET 4.5.
    -Good freedom to work on different projects within a program.

    Cons

    -Good employees aren't acknowledged as much as they should due to the deep management chain.
    -Raises are too small.
    -Sterile work environment: basic cube-farm with little accommodations for employees and no place to relax and hang out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make things more interesting or fun for employees, e.g. look up Google's work environment.

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

    Pros

    Challenging tasks. Worldwide travel. Cutting edge technology. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Advancement of unskilled engineering professionals to technical management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time in current employees, whom have vast amounts of experience, and have been instrumental in Lockheed's successes, versus (overly) focusing on hiring and promoting new, very young talent.

    Intern

    Former Employee - Intern in Orlando, FL
    Former Employee - Intern in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for, they give you meaningful projects and don't make you feel like an intern. Very organized intern program, given a supervisor and "buddy" on the first day to help ease the transition. Everyone is very helpful and treat interns well.

    Cons

    Low starting salary unless you get into leadership development programs.

    Former Employee - Senior Staff Project Engineer in Eagan, MN
    Former Employee - Senior Staff Project Engineer in Eagan, MN

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

    Pros

    Internal and external education support and plenty of internal advancement opportunities presented to those who care to pursue their career.
    9/80 work hours with every other Friday off was a great perk.

    Cons

    Massive size of company can be daunting for those who aren't proactive. Existing policies can deter some new ideas.
    Company success tied to government political relationships which vary regionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to pursue and share long range strategic vision internally to keep the spirit alive.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are identified as a high contributor you are treated well. Decent benefits, very good work/life balance most of the time. Never said no to a vacation and the experience has been very good upt ot his point.

    Cons

    Most of the leadership is progressive with their attitude towards the workforce. Some is not. So sometimes I have found it difficult to fight the balance between walking a politically correct type approach and a get it done type attitude. I don't know that this is company specific, just something that struck me as odd.
