"Solid Company"Jul 29, 2019

Current Employee - Engineering Leadership Development Program

I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

Pros

To keep this short and sweet. We get good pay, good benefits, and good work. It'll never be be "perfect" job, because it's so large they can't mold it to your needs. Understand that it's a massive... company with all the associated struggles. Beyond that, there are plenty of opportunities, but you have to learn to look for them and take them. LM will not hand you opportunities on a silver platter.

Cons

If you want fast paced, long hours, and high pay then go somewhere else. If you want to work a solid job and with solid benefits and time then go to LM.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Alion full-time for less than a year

Pros

Job stability here compared to other defense contractors is actually very good, and government demands on contract are reasonable. Benefits are improving. Still has a small business feel (i.e. walk... down the hallway to get a benefits question answered from HR). All the management I’ve interacted with has been professional and knowledgeable. If you want to sit around and wait for direction, this is not the company for you. Plenty of growth opportunities if you’re ambitious.

Cons

This is a true engineering company, and with that will come lots of introverts and different personalities that you have to navigate. Some of these personalities/senses of humor are not meant to be... understood.

Advice to Management

Focus on retention. Professional development/performance management needs to be hashed out too. Employees should be able to recognize peers with some sort of award system.
