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

Pros

- matching 401k: they match 50% of the first 8% you contribute
- flexible schedule, work from home may be available (but it's getting more difficult to get approved)
- usually okay with 40.0 hours/week

Cons

It doesn't matter how good you are as a developer - years of experience are HEAVILY weighted. Talented 25 year olds can out-code a developer making twice their salary

Advice to Management

Allow managers to give bonuses, and to fast-track young developers to senior developer level.

    Pros

    They have such a large amount of resources that are there to help you perform and succeed.
    There are so many groups that you can join and grow yourself as a professional.

    Cons

    It is a large organization so it cannot move at the speed of a small business. It can be tough to deal with the red tape although it is the strict regulations that make their products superior.
