    "Not nearly as good today as it was 20 years ago, Lockheed Martin still has some things to offer to employees."

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are still exciting jobs to be found at Lockheed Martin in a number of career areas. In the technical arena, if you get tired of what you are doing you have a good opportunity to try something quite new without having to change companies.

    Cons

    Upper level management at some facilities has appeared short-sighted in the management of the business areas under their control, leading to loss of business in those areas and a subsequent loss of jobs. The Corporation has made strides in industries other than Aeronautics, Space, and Defense, but in light of shrinking budgets in those areas, they could do so much more to further diversify away from those areas and into commercial ventures. Their proclamation of Full Spectrum Leadership, while good in theory, seems to be nothing more than lip service as I've seen many high-level managers completely fail in this regard and still get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get some fresh blood into the upper levels to stop the downward spiral of the last ten years; the old ways don't work any more regardless of how noble the intent.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company has high integrity. The people are what make the job great. Front line managers make or break the job.

    Cons

    Work/life balance was off kilter. Company promoted work/life balance and then quietly back away from that jargon. Morale suffers when we can't spend time with our families and remember why we are working.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Tell the your people what's going on and why.
