    Pros

    Lockheed Martin offers a great amount of security and professional growth for a wide variety of career paths due to its size and reach - there are Lockheed Martin facilities in nearly every state and many other countries. Awesome benefits compared to other companies, especially when it comes to relocation to another LM unit. Ease of transfer as well - just find a place you want to live and odds are LM is there already.

    Cons

    The company is extremely large and tends to move slower than a startup, so if someone is seeking a fast-paced environment, they may not be pleased with this company. The company is also very "politically correct", due to lawsuits and fines, so creativity and the x-factor of workplace synergy can sometimes be stifled.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things simple! Get away from re-hashing the same corporate policies over and over again and start creating true value.

    Pros

    Lockheed has a lot of different places they operate from, and hundreds of different jobs in any given field. They make it very easy to move around within the company, so you dont need to feel like you are trapped in just 1 job. Also, having a security clearence makes it easier to get a job within the company, as well as similar companies if you decide lockheed isnt for you.

    Cons

    Working with a security clearence, there is the extra stress of dealing with security procedures, and you can not come home and tell the family what you did at work that day. Getting changes made to policies is a big complicated deal, typical to large companies. Lots of politics to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    I am pleased with the attitude and friendliness of the facility I work in.
