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

Pros

Excellent pay for good performance and many benefits including insurance, retirement savings matching, etc.
A challenging job environment and employee improvement structure designed to stretch your abilities.

Cons

Very regimented way of writing code for defense customers who are very picky about minor things. There are many problems with having a cash-strapped single customer for a product. Not the most enjoyable workplace environment (just a cube farm) with laptops given only to management positions (so they can work from their near-constant meetings).

Advice to Management

Working with government customers to upgrade the work environment to one where workers have the option of working from their desk cube or a no-seat-assigned collaborative space would greatly increase both creativity and productivity.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training budget with CERTAIN projects, opportunities that do not exist elsewhere to work with DoD projects, nice networking, decent education benefits.

    Cons

    Outdated technology, the DoD "crawl" where projects that could take a week take six, contracting benefits, contracting opportunities, salary freezes, major issues with DoD contracts right now.

    Advice to Management

    Start moving out of the way to allow those who "do" to perform the miracles that they were hired to do. Motivate and mentor and start becoming a heat shield so that your team can thrive.


  2. "Fantastic place to work with great leadership and a flexible work environment."

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

    Pros

    Great leadership and good pay. Pay for performance, so if you work hard your pay will go up quickly.

    Cons

    Large corporation that does have its fair share of politics. You do have to be aware of how the politics work and understand that sometimes politics will prevail and you have to learn from it and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
