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

    Pros

    The pay is okay. There really aren't many other pros that I can think of. They're a large company, and some people might like that.

    Cons

    There is zero opportunity for growth. The company is in decline and the senior management either don't care, or just want to squeeze every ounce of blood out of it before it dies. It won't go any time soon, mind you, but it will go.
    The amount of process that one has to go through to get ANYTHING done is nothing short of staggering. Process, schedule and cost come before anything else. While Lockheed hasn't been caught up in any recent ethics scandals, they apply very little ethics in how they treat their employees.
    They are not reinvesting any money in the company. At all. You can't even get them to buy a paperclip, never mind the proper equipment for the engineers to do their jobs.

    To sum it up: Poor management, no reinvestment, treating the employees like crap, no vision and management by process have brought a once great company to its knees.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Just quit and let someone who actually knows something about the technology, and has some interest in coming out of the stone age take your place.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, as long as you do your work and work the 40 hours a week you are required to work there are no issues. Great employees to work with, all very smart. Challenging work.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs every year for the past 4 years, due to federal government budget cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the managers have to be in tune with what there engineers have to say instead of pushing for the product to be finished by skipping steps in the company's process.
