    Pros

    Good pay. Very fair, Offer a variety of career paths. Encourage diversity and full involvement..

    Cons

    Large company, easy to get lost in the cracks. A lot of time is spent on repeated compliance training and review processes. But they have been working to streamline and improve the process. Functional manager is not always your project manager.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know those you supervise. Don't let them be just a number (or fall into the cracks).

    Pros

    They have weekly pay and the pay is usually fare and the benefits are ok. Also the staff is usually very professional at least the ones I worked around.

    Cons

    They will lay you off when they don't want to keep the contract you are currently working under or if the are out bided on a contract your are working on. Also they will not transfer you or help by giving you a list of location you could request a transfer. It also seem that once your laid off because of a contract you are working on end or there were out bided on they will not hire you back under another contract. Myself and 150 others have been applying to Lockheed Martin since we were laid off an none of us have been re-hired. It almost feels like your black listed. You would think they would hire the people back that know lost there job due to a contact ending or a contract they chose not to bide on or have been out bided on a contract from another company. It also seem they would re-hire the employees that understand the work capacity, rules and regulation that know how the S.O.P's work because you worked for them for so long.

    Advice to Management

    You should go back review your old employees that lost there jobs from a contract you lost or chose not to renew and offer them a job on a deferent contract or at least provide them with a transfer from a contract they are working on if that contract is ending so they can stay employed and you will keep well trained employees that will not take much to acclimate to the job.

    Pros

    Very pleasant atmosphere, most of the people are polite and friendly. The pay is good and the job offers plenty of opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    Some people may not like the early morning hours and the very busy days. Also when the treat level is raised it requires a lot more detailed responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management will be to try to develop a better communication with employees and except their ideas if it make sense. Work together as a team in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

    Pros

    There are some smart people working on innovative projects (engineering,

    Cons

    There is a lot of the blame game going on. Any time anything doesn't flow at a normal pace, people are put into the fire. This happens most on a contract work, no so much if you're charging overhead. Also, there is a very standard career progression. HR/management give promotions 90% based on years worked rather than actual skill. There are plenty of times when more qualified individuals are overlooked because they haven't put their time in.

    Advice to Management

    Your job is tough. You're dealing with limited budget and you have to make decisions within your sandbox. Keep pushing for the issues that employees care about. The only way we can be appeased is through your sympathy.
