Pros

LM is a great company to get your bearings. If you are looking to do system level work, this is the place for you. I felt very secure in my job and that I was contributing significantly to projects within 6 months of my start date.

Cons

The age gap between senior and junior engineers is often staggering. I think both parties have a hard time relating and this results in a lower amount of mentoring.

Advice to Management

Implement profit sharing. Modify ratings system to accommodate employees who have been there half a year or less.

    Pros

    Excellent, very interesting programs. Great job mobility, and many opportunities to grow and develop your skills. Pay and benefits are better than average. Ethics is important, as is diversity.

    Cons

    There are a number of ex-government managers with no experience or skills at running large program, since they were hired for their personal contacts rather than their progam management ability. They are dangerous.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring less competent ex-government managers as Lockeed Martin managers. While they would be OK as consultants, they are clueless about how to operate a commercial business.


  2. "Great Company"
