I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

It's a very big corporation with lots of people, so if you're really smart and work hard, you will climb the corporate ladder fairly quickly.

Cons

Limited opportunities if you do not have security clearance. Lots of business depends on government, so it's not always the place where the most current/trendy stuff gets made.

Advice to Management

The performance evaluation process is a joke.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've worked from home for the past 10+ years. We do some cool things that help protect America and her allies.

    Cons

    Management turnover due to job rotations create a ton of re-work for the program managers who have to continuously sell their programs to the "manager de jour". Also, if you're not a graduate of their coveted Information Systems Leadership Development Program (ISLDP), your name will never be discussed for manager positions if you're in IT and work for their corporate division. For new hires, make sure you ask about this. You'll be glad you did, even if you don't want to be a manager one day.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the velocity at which job rotations among managers occur. Every 6-9months is too frequent, every 2 - 3 years would be much better and increase productivity.
