No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great place to develop your skills, make long lasting connections, work on incredible program and technologies

Cons

Business structure for hiring and laying off is antiquated and incredibly arbitrary, many dead weight engineers in senior posts that you have to work around, endless compliance training and HR methods, no support for HR initiatives that are beneficial, good old boy network still in existence but dying out slowly

Advice to Management

Train your mid level managers why some HR initiatives are beneficial and make them take it seriously, learn to fire the right people not just new engineers to meet a quota, learn that firings need to happen when you have a culture of dead weight

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    My co-workers have been great. We get paid really quite well in comparison to others in my field. The work-life balance is great.

    Cons

    The health insurance is expensive for a family. With government budget cuts, the company is in a cost cutting mode, which means that things such as outside training and conferences are pretty much a thing of the past. It seems that the culture can be a bit too insular, whereby people here don't keep up with outside trends in their areas of expertise.


  2. "Exciting projects and rewarding experiences"
