    Pros

    Unlimited opportunity and exposure to any professional, technical, or management functional area. The work place culture and atmosphere is outstanding. Entry level compensation is great, mid management compensation is measured.

    Cons

    On the technical side of the house, quite a few personnel were hired and compensated based upon their potential and not their existing knowledge, skills, and abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain a healthy balance between management objectives and task accomplishment.

    Pros

    Management is understanding of life outside of work leading to great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Decision making can be very slow which is a reflection of the number of layers of approval necessary for change and the complexity of the products.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I love the 9x80 work week, I also have the ability to come in whenever Id like which is really nice. I have a lot of opportunities to travel, which is possible because of Lockheed's large budget and extensive list of business partners. The company really tries to take care of its customers with good health benefits/incentives, discount programs, credit unions, the list goes on. LM is very active in the surrounding communities with volunteering and reaching out to youth.

    Cons

    The yearly LM commit performance reviews are somewhat annoying but it seems like most large companies are doing something similar. With my job, I sometimes have to be on call for emergencies or at times am scheduled to work critical events in the middle of the night.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    I loved the opportunities they have given to me. They are receptive to new opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red tape and hard to move up as with many large corp

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The yearly survey is not going to tell the whole story of employee happiness. Retention of ISLDP especially is now, likely because they are being held back even when they are qualified due to all of the HR red tape and they jump ship for a company that wants all of their talent. I have seen this so many times.
