    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Very secure position for an employee who doesn't look at porn on their work computer and refrains from discriminatory language or actions.

    Cons

    Incredibly high stress
    Military environment poorly compatable with civilian employees
    Multiple layers of management expecting direct reports from anyone below them
    Poor understanding of bottle knecks, not just on the production facility, but within business functions
    Customer demands do not reflect customer budget

    Advice to Management

    Read The Goal by Eliyahu Goldratt and realize that it applies to more than just the production facility.
    Realize that your company is not a military organization and bring in managers without military experience to help you understand and support your civilian workforce.
    Please, for the sake of all that is good in this world, improve morale.

    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.
