    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people in the industry. Flex time, 9-80 work schedule, generous vacation time. The pay was very comparable to other corporations in the industry.

    Cons

    The obsession with the people having their college degrees. I saw many talented and able bodied employees passed up for promotion because they lacked a degree, only to see a new college graduate come in and get a higher salary and more responsibility, having no experience.

    Advice to Management

    Relish the fact that some employees may lack the piece of paper from a college but that does not mean the person is not qualified for the job.

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

    Pros

    Great work hours; team environment; employees had a personal dedication to supporting the soldiers; I was able to work closely with hourly personnel and other contractors, and thus influence safety on the shop and warehouse floor; company provided excellent benefits package with ease of access both online and CSRs via phone

    Cons

    Corporate / Regional Safety Rep was not present for contract startup and possibly for bidding process as time was not allowed to be dedicated to required OSHA training requirements; lack of safety training materials; base facilities were not always complaint with safety codes; there was a lack of safety equipment in shops; and when I left position, a non-experienced person was “appointed” to the ESH position I had to use my personnel vehicle for business without mileage reimbursement by customer or company.

    Advice to Management

    Include risk management, ESH in bid process and send ESH personnel to sites when contracts start (same as you do by sending HR BP and staff to site during transition of contracts).
