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

Pros

The work is as cutting edge as it gets. As a software engineer, I was exposed to a multitude of technologies that were just taking off. The environment is relatively informal. The hours are extremely flexible. I could just not go to work on a random day of the week and that was ok as long as I sent an email.

Cons

It is nearly impossible to be promoted above a level 3 engineer in the Advanced Technology Lab. The level 4 and 5 employees aren't going anywhere, and there's not enough lower level employees to justify promoting any more 3's. It's purely a function of the lack of breadth in the 230 person organization. Also, unless you are coming in with a PhD from another high paying job, expect to get less than industry standard. People are leaving the company now and getting at least 20-25% pay increases.

    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.
