Approves of CEO

I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits, employees come from a number of disciplines and industries. Company pays attention and cares about improving safety record and complying with environmental standards.

Cons

Government bureaucracy gets in the way of modernizing systems (i.e. using excel as opposed to databasing). Information sharing not practiced amongst many of the older employees (wanting to keep their jobs, I suppose!!!).

Advice to Management

Look toward the younger, incoming employees... the new talent has some great suggestions for improving the current systems in place at Lockheed!
