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

    Pros

    There is a large variety of work available in a multitude of industries. A very strong sense of team work, like a second family. Supported education goals and while expected to work when work was needed, also supported the need for time off and a work/life balance.

    Cons

    It is challenging to get a promotion along with a raise. A lot of "latteral" moves, with more responsibility.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Lockheed has very mature Dev, Test, and Production operation processes, and well-enforced operation policies, which leads to a nice, stable environment.

    Lockheed also supports and frequently wins new government and commercial contracts, so you'll get experience supporting a variety of different agencies & industries.

    Technical leadership is strong - at least in terms of familiarity with existing contract support.

    Cons

    They're extremely cheap. No bonuses, and the below-average raises often don't cover the annual cost-of-living increase OR the increased costs employees pay for their "benefits". This is partially a result of being a government contractor, where income is somewhat fixed.

    Uncertainty over contract renewals can also be stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope that someone eventually replaces Linda Gooden...

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Work your own hours, working with your own customers. Friendly people, and good benefits. The management is excellent when it comes to letting you work independently. I would say that the teams that I personally work with are some of the greatest people. There is freedom of religion here, making it a great place to work without being uncomfortable. All in all, I would rank Lockheed Martin as being a wonderful work place. There is also opportunity around the country if you were to ever want to transfer or move. This is also one of the great benefits of working for such a company.

    Cons

    Lower pay scale, not much recognition for accomplishments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend giving more recognition to associates, so to retain them. They should feel they are wanted and appreciated.
