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 a year)

    Pros

    Great training, benefits, retirement and learn how to use a lot of different computer systems. Also, cool environment to work in if you like defense/aeronautics.

    Cons

    Have to wait a long time (three years atleast) to get promoted, pretty much just follow directions and run reports, not much autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the younger employees as they will be your future - try to decrease turnover.

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

    Pros

    I was living in Indianapolis and my manager was in Washington, DC who interviewed me over the phone and made sure I recieved all paperwork to bring me on board for a contract job in Hampton, Georgia.

    Cons

    This was the first job in my life which I was paid the highest salary in my life on a weekly bais and I loved it.

    Advice to Management

    Management took the initiative and professionalism to see the phone interview process from start to finish and I take my hat off to them. The entire process was real smooth.
