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

Pros

This is a old boy company where they like the old way of doing things, but on the other hand love to work with all the smart people. Foster growth, life and work balance is great.

Cons

Too much politics especially where the government get their hands in some of the budget planning process.

Advice to Management

Need to listen to your surbordinates in order to retain talents.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When you have a good team & good leadership, it is a great place to work. When the supervisors and team leaders are taking care of their people while getting the job done, goals are accomplished and customers are happy.
    Looks good on a resume!

    Cons

    There are a number of people who are very political. Certain people will work to get rid of you if they see you as competition. Long work hours and long rambling meetings reduce the effectiveness of teams

    Advice to Management

    Reward good politics (helping others regardless of their power to help you)
    Remove bad politics (only helping those who have the power to help you)
    Do not discount the disabled veterans.
    Be very careful of who you layoff it may be a hard working vet.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    none, used to be a great company to work for but now, i can't think of any pros of working there.

    Cons

    caught in a downward spiral of quality and the effects of poor management decisions. Other companies more at a faster rate when it comes to newer technologies. To top heavy to be agile or nimble and to slow to make any significant changes.

    Advice to Management

    Top down approach does not work. bottom up works, treat the employees better and you will get a better quality of product. be loyal to employees that are loyal to you. reward those workers who truly deserve to be rewarded and get rid of the good ol' boys network. or fade to oblivion. your choice.
