    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule. Ability for advancement. Can learn a lot of information about a lot of different technologies by moving between projects.

    Cons

    Like any large company you are really just a number. Moving between projects has a formal interview process. In other words, Lockheed Martin is a huge umbrella corporation comprised of many small/medium sized companies. Can be very difficult to get another internal job. Health insurance plan is not good at all. Seems like every year more benefits erode away. With government budget cuts in defense spending... it's possible that we will see close to $400 billion dollars cut from defense over the next decade or so. This would cause Lockheed to shed somewhere in the ballpark of 12,000 jobs.

    Advice to Management

    It is hard to keep good talent when other companies offer more/better benefits and opportunities. It causes the good talent to boil off and you're left with what ever is left. Make the process of moving between jobs internally easier and more streamlined instead of treating internal staff as people off the streets.
