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

Pros

Really good pay and benefits. Flexible work life balance. The senior / director levels really set the tone for a program. As a result, some programs are more fun, easier to handle the challenges then others.

Cons

Constant layoffs for last three years. System of layoff includes "bumping" which is laying off people who's jobs still exist because there is another "more qualified" person who can do the job . Management at Sunnyvale Space Systems is poor. Team work is poor. Laziness is rampant. Team dynamics are poor. Very insular culture.

Advice to Management

Stop sheltering people who aren't contributing to solutions and who are merely pushing paper around. Learn how to lead by example and develop leadership skills instead of ignoring struggling teams. Take ownership of problem teams and replace leads who are ineffectual at influencing and negotiating and listening to the customer.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance policies , vac time, experience, ability to work from home is only thing keeping me here even though they are forcing mandatory unpaid overtime

    Cons

    Unrealistic management driven deadlines. Constant downsizing without decrease in workload
    Promotions are a battle even though your work is a level above. Unpaid overtime that is mandated.

    Advice to Management

    Instability of restructure is stressful. Company needs to fight to retain its talented workforce and retain knowledge but instability causes the talent to leave and the unproductive and unknowledgeable workers to remain behind.
