I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Many unique projects, not impossibly hard to move across the corporation

Cons

Pay will never be close enough to what other companies will offer

Advice to Management

Early career folks such as myself are leaving by the truckload, you know it, and you know why, there's not enough leadership opportunities, performance assessments are a joke and merit increases seem to eternally suck. The only way to grow a decent salary is to leave the company and come back with an offer, or be a TA to some director/VP (essentially be someone's pet).

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work was very interesting and I gained a lot of valuable experience. There are some amazing engineers there to learn from.

    Cons

    The pay was below average and advancing has become very difficult since Michoud Operations has been merged into Lockheed Martin Space Systems. The workload and overtime expectations were excessive at times (although some overtime is paid, even for salaried positions).

    Advice to Management

    Compensating employees (both pay and promotions) below their market value almost incentivizes employees to leave and contributes to the turnover rate.
