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

Pros

Out by 5 PM every day, paid weekly, benefits start from the day you join, very well compensated, benefits are pretty competitive, 401k and capital accumulation plan (no pension).

Cons

There are a few people doing cutting edge stuff, but the vast majority of people are not doing cutting edge stuff. It has been years since I have been truly challenged. The work-life-balance is so good, that it has become a con for me.

Advice to Management

There is a tendency to promote people based on "years of service." The corporation says it promotes based on performance, but if HR's first instinct is to "check whether you have the 'years of service' required for the job" ...it is just lip-service.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pros include competitive salary, outstanding work/life balance, very flexible scheduling options, exposure to many different technologies and tons of opportunity to expand skill set.

    Cons

    Benefits options and costs are horrendous. When I started with the company about a decade ago the benefits were competitive and have since dropped off a cliff. I'm on my wife's benefit plans. LM does not spend enough on training for employees compared to other defense contractor competitors. Depending on the program/customer the work may seem slow and overly process driven.
