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

    Pros

    *NONE* All of the good reasons for working here have vanished over the past few years. In years past, engineers were valued employees and it was possible to enjoy a technical career. Recently a ceiling seems to be preventing engineers from going over a level 4 labor grade.

    Options used to be available to transfer to different divisions in other areas of the country but with sequestration going on, there seem to be very few openings anywhere.

    Cons

    The medical insurance offered is so bad it's virtually non-existent. There are no choices, only an Aetna administered plan is available. Deductibles are $2,500/yr. In-plan doctors are extremely hard to find or get appointments with, especially one that speaks English.

    Nearly every division in the company is experiencing high levels of layoffs and threatening to reduce salaries of many remaining engineers in the 4th quarter of this year. Many long-term employees (over 20 years) have been laid off this year with only 2 weeks notice.

    Very few people have received raises over the past 4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of the fact that nearly everyone who has a working spouse has gone with their spouses insurance plan. The Aetna medical plan is an insult.

    Nearly every engineer that I know of at Lockheed is currently looking for a new job.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Smart people.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic hierarchical organizational structure with some 'old school' practices.

    Advice to Management

    Look outward for best practices and don't be afraid to try new ideas.
