    Current Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Gaithersburg, MD

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Better than average program management teams vs. other companies in the industry. Very good upward mobility in the entry-level to mid-level career phase. Very good pay at upper management levels if you can make it there.

    Cons

    Customer budget and acquisition changes have resulted in poor performance which has damaged employee morale. Significant disconnect between front-line reality and senior leadership perception. Most functional groups are stovepiped which creates a "Not my problem" type of atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership has started to recognize the reality of the competitive landscape (about 3 years too late), but they are moving too slow to correct and don't quite understand how to fix their issues. Employees are starting to lose faith.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for Lockheed provided me opportunities for growth both professionally and personally. The atmosphere was positive. It felt like more than just a job. You worked with cutting edge technology and were valued as part of a team.

    Cons

    A down side is your job position can be impacted by contract awards. One minute the funding can be there for some time and then the next minute there is no longer any funding for the project you are working on.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Worked here for 8 years and really enjoyed it. As long as you're the kind of person who's happy to take up opportunities when they come along you can go a really long way.
    The projects and programmes are all really interesting as well.
    Money is reasonable to high, and benefits are above average.

    Cons

    Promotion process is very long-winded and very competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing the business in challenging times, and keep going as you are. Help people progress their careers and plans over time.
