I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

LM is a very stable company with a lot of interesting technologies. The company generally has strong ethical culture and is committed to performing for the customer

Cons

At a company this large it can be easy to get lost in the shuffle. The company itself is aging rapidly which will be a challenge in the next few years. The uncertainty of defense and other government contracts will be a interesting time for the company.

Advice to Management

This company needs to focus on keeping and developing young engineers

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A large organization, if you keep your head down, and have a solid education, you can have some job security.

    Cons

    Complete lack of concern for employees. They will hire someone away from another job, just to have them burn through some money for one week and then fire them.
    Pretentious, arrogant management.
    During a serious snowstorm, the mayor of Baltimore declared it to be against the law for anyone to be on the streets driving in Baltimore due to overwhlemed city emergency response. Lockheed made sure that they declared themselves open, so that they could bill Social Security and not have to pay out to employees.
    It's a good place to start out of school, but there are no raises, and you're simply filling a chair.

    Have less personnel to do the work since many layoffs happen
    Too many managers and not enough workers
    Not fair treatment to all

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of who is really doing the work and make sure they get the kudos and incentives. Not just who give good lip service.
