I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

Defense industry can be more volatile than you might expect
Defense industry going into downward cycle due to budget crisis

Advice to Management

We talk about doing more commercial work, but need more leadership to make the changes needed to be a player

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a job. Lots of time off, two weeks at X-mas. Still has a good name but its getting bad.

    Cons

    pay will not match level of responsibility or effort. Rating system is a joke its pay for favorites not performance. Hard to find one person who is happy in any department. You work 5 hours for free before you are compensated at reg pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking fresh out of school kids can do the same job as a person with 20+ years in a program. FBM is hurting bad, I see the Navy pulling the contract in the next 5 years or sooner.
