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

    Pros

    Large and financially stable company, numerous global locations

    Cons

    Sacrificing quality to save cost, weak upper/mid-level management, few opportunities to progress, no longer invests in employees (constantly chipping away at employee development/benefits/pay), horrible employee ratings/merit program, - an exhausting, frustrating place to work...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pressure from the executive level to cut costs are influencing poorly trained/equipped mid-level managers who are executing short-sighted solutions that look good on paper, but are rapidly diminishing the quality and reputation of the company's goods and services. This has had a devastating impact on the morale of the already overworked employees- I have witnessed far too many talented engineers leave for work elsewhere.

    Pros

    Working with smart dedicated people. Occasional whiff of JP4.

    Cons

    Forced distribution performance management system. They hire the best then tell 20% that are not worthy of a raise. Pension is being taken away and replaced with a diminished package. Large negative $$ impacts on mid-career employees' retirements. Tone deaf bloviating executives driving morale into the depths. Career paths are limited after level 3. You should seek employment elsewhere after level 3.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick a stake in the PMS now! It is killing the morale. Bring back comp time and remove the 5 hour gate on OT. When you come down to express appreciation for a record quarter, or for a particularly good effort to pull off a difficult task, say it with more than words. If you really do appreciate what was done, just remember, treasure is the measure.

    Pros

    If you have any background in Military Aviation then this company makes you feel right at home. Some policies change but overall amongst the ones that matter terminology and practices remain. The pay is good compared to other companies in the same market and the ability to work as much as you want is there.

    Cons

    Sometimes you may feel as if your stuck in the advancement department waiting for higher positions to open up. The Union for the mechanics isn't flexible enough for all the locations of its members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing bad to say about the management as a whole. Only advice I'd give is to set a standard that everyone adheres too. There is too many different management techniques being applied to the same group of workers.
