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

    Pros

    They do have a large number of contracts to work on, howeveri would be very careful in considering a position with them or a sub.

    Cons

    They tend to under bid a contract and come up short on manhours. They routinely try to make up for this by pressuring employees to provide the customer with unpaid/undocumented manhours.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to audit the performance of their Program Managers and the contract employees.

    "Ginormous company, ginormous egos, ginormous politicking required. Exec Management too removed from general workforce."

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

    Pros

    Awesome feeling to contribute to the success of our defense community. Some super-smart, caring, sincere people to work with and learn from. Good pay and benefits. Blend in and under the radar and you'll probably have a job.

    Cons

    Management touts a diverse company culture when in reality with a few affirmative action exceptions, the workforce looks and acts like they're straight out of a cookie cutter batch of white, 26-40 year old male yes men. If you don't play the game and pump up your manager often, you get lost in the crowd. If you have real and valid issues with another employee (especially one of the good ole boys) you are labeled as a troublemaker and targeted for termination.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to ALL of your employees. Pay attention to the clicks and sub-culture groups and don't give them any more credibility than they truly deserve. Sometimes it's the one, not the many, that is sincere. Help when asked instead of dismissing as beneath you or your job. Do the right thing regardless of good ole boy alliances.
