    Pros

    Upper management always interested in employee feedback, new ideas and works to implement the best of those into operations. Everything extra you give is valued.

    Cons

    There are no downsides to working at Lockheed Martin, except that the workload never lets up, which indicates the interest in our programs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the great job that makes Lockheed Martin stand out as an exemplary company with a growing Energy Services division.

    Go to MBA School!

    My experience with Lockheed Martin was exciting because I was able to develop my skills over a 25 year period.

    Pros

    Working there will allow you to move into different and challenging positions. You can also work at different location around the world.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges in working on some programs is that the contract you are working on can come to a close at which time you have to move on to another program.

    Advice to Management

    Management have to help employees find another assignment for the employee to work particularly when a contract is coming to an end.

    Pros

    Telecommute, great hours (over-time is a rarity). There is always an effort to train.

    Cons

    Must be willing to live government contract to contract. Always have a resume ready. If you're not billable you're at risk; if there are budget issues, you're at risk.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary, management leaves you to do your work.

    Cons

    Wholly dependent upon government contracts, funding is always an issue. Not much opportunity for advancement. upward or sideways. Technical training is available for developers, but otherwise, not. Director recently told team that we need to make our own investment in our training to show our commitment to Lockheed.

    Advice to Management

    Good management, but some unethical game playing due to funding pressues

    Pros

    Great company to grow a dynamic career.

    Cons

    It's a large company, so new engineers don't always see the big picture.
