    Strong ethical culture. Good training, development, and mentoring opportunities. Good ability to rotate between assignments and gain tremendously diverse experience. Good benefits.

    Continue to focus on strengthening the core. Continue to focus on talent development and retention. Continue to maintain strong culture of ethics. Continue to drive focus on the customer.

    Pros

    Multiple programs in the DC area. Generally you are able to jump between programs within the same division of the company. Interesting and challenging work. Mentors are available.

    Cons

    Program is very customer focused, which is a good thing, until you realize your boss at LM doesn't know what you do. This program is more of a mgmt consulting type role. Interesting work but unless you have a highly visible position you could fall btwn the cracks.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your employees to do excel and give them the platform to do so.

    Pros

    I love the family oriented company.. The Crystal City location was the best. Many place to eat. A lot of fun activities the company partakes in.

    Cons

    The ability to work from home wasn't given unless it was an emergency. Room for potential growth wasn't available to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue to do a great hob. Pay attention to employees request. They do all the hard work.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    IS&GS is the IT services division of Lockheed Martin. It is a conglomeration of many programs. There are locations throughout the Washington DC metropolitan area and also employees work at many different customer locations. The salary is very good and working conditions are good (can vary by location. Some customer sites may not be so good),

    Cons

    IS&GS is for sale so it will not be part part of Lockheed Martin for long. So everything from salary grids, benefits, and even the culture may change. Medical benefits are mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Resolve the sale quickly. The unknowns are many. Protect the pension plan.
