Pros

Located in nice rural area. Great place to raise kids, no traffic. Affordable real estate. The work is interesting and challenging.

Cons

No one is required to work over time, but if you don't put in at least 44 hours on a regular basis, then you aren't challenging yourself. You'll be challenged to complete your task with less schedule and budget then you started out with. Management is risk averse, so a lot of opportunities are wasted.

Expect to pay high real estate taxes.

Advice to Management

Don't wait so long to make a decision, that the opportunity is lost. Not all business areas can afford to use DoD processes.

    Pros

    Great place to start a career. They give you a good choice of what projects to work on.

    From my experience, management was very helpful.

    Cons

    Depends on the place, but some Lockheeds aren't as good as other Lockheeds in terms of work environment. Also, the performance reviews aren't always fair. They take into consideration, how useful is your project to the company in the end?

    You could do a great job on a not so important project and still be dinged in the performance review for that.

    Advice to Management

    Make the performance evaluations fair, so that they take performance into heavier consideration than the importance of the project that was completed. Some employees might end up on the wrong project at the wrong time.
