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

Pros

Industry leader in defense. Top quality products to support the warfighter.

Cons

For upward growth, you have to be willing to relocate. As a former manger, I was forced by senior management to rate my employees into a bell curve with 90% as Satisfactory employees even though they deserved better ratings.
Benefits are not as good, or cheap as you'd expect from a large company.

Advice to Management

Get rid of forced distribution of annual performance. It demotivated people.

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

    Pros

    Career Development
    Many locations across the globe
    Virtual work
    Salary
    Greater focus on health and wellness, (clinics at many of our facilities)

    Cons

    EXTREMELY slow moving, risk averse, conservative working environment. Recently cut benefits options down to only one and they keep hiking up the cost to the employee every year so whatever raise you do get basically gets absorbed by the rising costs of benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision, take a risk, if it doesn't work out it, the world is not going to end.
