I have been working at Lockheed Martin as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

-They have a set # of interns to hire, good chances.
-Lots of industry exposure
- Large responsibilities given

Cons

- Mandatory hiring means you get hired in and they have to FIND stuff for you to do, it's not really planned.
-Thrown responsibilities with (sometimes) not a lot of mentoring\guidance

Advice to Management

Plan out Internship experiences ... Don't hire people and 'wing it'

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people are phenomenal - great skill sets and great personalities.
    Pay is commensurate with others in the same industry.

    Cons

    They put people in management positions with absolutely no training or background and when something goes wrong, very quick to pass the blame on (i.e., managers can do no wrong)

    Advice to Management

    Ensure anyone who gets a "manager" title has training or experience.
