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

    Pros

    The people at Lockheed Martin are generally good people and a pleasure to work with.
    The type of work is interesting and challenging, typically cutting edge and a leader in the industry. Good experience can be accumulated with this type of work.

    Cons

    The moral and environment are not conducive in creating an enjoyable, positive, and productive work place. Security combined with Human Resources does not foster an open and trusting relationship with management. Employees will avoid speaking-out and offering information, seeking advice, or career development. This is not a pleasant place to work.

    Most positions are dead-end jobs with meager annual salary increases. Merit raises are below industry average. One would need to leave and return to this company to get ahead. Classified programs amplify these over-sites and use their secrecy as an excuse why employees are overlooked when recognition has been earned.

    Even though they offer Insurance Benefits, the programs are just below industry average with very high costs to the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Separate Human Resource and Security departments and create local Benefit support for employees.

    Pay above average salary to attract and retain top talent. The Lockheed Martin name may attract top talent, but paying just under industry average will not retain top talent. This includes the benefit packages that drain the salary to below average.

    Create substantial monetary awards in the form of merit raises for those that excel. One time trivial awards are not sustaining, and offer little value over time.

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

    Pros

    Great products, great work ethic, patriotic employees

    Cons

    While there are many great leaders at Lockheed Martin, my chain of leadership did not fit that profile. The goal was to create a change in how the business of human resources would be carried out. While necessary and on target, many employees are simply in fear for their jobs based on how this change is being carried out. The result is dysfunctional behavior from people triggered by fear.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your leaders accountable for how they treat their people versus just the activities and accomplishments. The leadership team is not walking their talk.
