    I have been working at Lockheed Martin as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They care about their workers. Yes they demand high quality and quantity of work, but you have an excellent vacation package as well as other benefits. Managers also try to work with you regularly on professional development so you reach your goals.

    Cons

    The hours are long and your customers can be very demanding. Not all of your coworkers enjoy their jobs and will sometimes take it out on you if it seems like you're in their way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff to keep up with workload.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and salaries, flexible schedules, interesting assignments. Proud to have been part of the team in this defense company.

    Cons

    Sometimes susceptible to layoffs due to contracts ending. Work schedules sometimes very demanding. Should always stay current on latest technology and be willing to change jobs to pursue those skills to prevent running into a dead end career path when you can no longer afford to make the change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Initiate job sharing programs for older workers to retain knowledge and experience that can be passed on to next generation.
