I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

This company offers flex time to their employees on most contracts ( when possible), and promotes balance between their employee's lives and the workplace . Don't get me wrong - employees are expected to step up and work VERY HARD when it comes to deadlines and deliverables. LM also promotes from within when possible. They also have an advanced leadership program for ambitious employees. This is a highly ethical company that embraces diversity.

Cons

All of Lockheed's work is contract based -so layoffs can be common and frequent. But they try to place employees in other jobs, if they are willing to travel or take a lesser positions. After being laid off once, I was re-hired. Current crunch with Fed real funding could impact company's future profit and opportunity.

Advice to Management

Don't use all the "corporate-ease" to communicate with us - just speak English.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Off-fridays is a big perk

    Cons

    It's got kind of a "stuffy" culture of a 100 year old company. Not too much "young blood". There's a lot of red tape and beaurocracy. Hard to get promotions/bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Solid employment (near recession-proof), strong corporate leadership, several internal courses and skills improvement seminars available.

    Cons

    Lockheed is a giant freight train, not easily altered from the course. Change can be incremental, slow, frustrating, and inconsistent. Not surprising, considering it's a company of ~120k+ employees from several disparate legacy and heritage locations.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to promote from within when possible, and be willing to further integrate into "one company, one team".
