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

Pros

Great corporate culture, focus is truly on the warfighter's needs. 9x80 work schedule with every other Fri off.

Cons

Bureaucracy at senior levels can be very, very slow moving to get things done. Proposals are Powerpointed to death, often with no one leaving the room making an actionable decision to execute the plan.

Advice to Management

Allow employees to be just a little less risk adverse, dispense of layers and layers of approval for new business development opportunities

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Allowed me to grow and utilized my skills independently in a leadership position. There was room for growth and advancement.. Offered great benefit packages.

    Cons

    People are not held accountable for not performing their assigned duties. Enforcement should be on tardiness and not showing up for work.

    Advice to Management

    To hold employees accountable for their actions.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, benefits and retirement, many locations around the country, development programs for career advancement

    Cons

    Experiences can vary greatly from program to program, training and development opportunities have been limited in the past few years, can be difficult to get recognition if you aren't on the "right" program, advancement can be slow unless you have a senior or executive level employee giving you recommendations.

    Advice to Management

    Better retain your young engineering talent by giving them opportunities to grow, adjustments need to be made to better fit the culture of the younger generation
