9+ years, straight out of colllege... Great start; Great company

Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

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

ProsVery diverse environment and great place to learn. There is a great work-life balance and flexible hours.

ConsNo upward mobility. There is a lot of process and documentation that you must go through to get the smallest things changed, although the processes that needs changing, is to better process improvement.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would like for management to have some type of idea of what tasks and daily processes the "worker bees" complete. We are judged by performance against our peers but if management doesn't have an idea what you do (besides what you tell them) how can they fend for you to get a raise when they are just reading your words.

The best and the brightest Engineers in the A&D Industry are at Lockheed Martin!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

ProsThere is nothing this company can't do. You truly work with the pinnacle of Engineering talent and the feats that we accomplish are incredible. If it's cutting edge technology, we do it here.

ConsWork/Life balance is VERY poor. Long hours with small 3% per year raises.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop worrying about Stock Prices and get back to the fundamentals about Engineering great products. Treat employees like human beings, not assets.

Excellent Employer!

Deputy Task Order Manager (Current Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK

I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLockheed Martin is an industry leader who values their employees ideas and innovation.

ConsIn Oklahoma City, there isn't a large representation of Lockheed employees so it is harder to get a job and also promotions in this area. If you are willing to relocate it makes it easier.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe one thing I would like to see changes with at Lockheed is the LM Commit system. LM Corporate should poll the field level managers and get their input regarding the system and how it could have a more positive impact for employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
