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

Pros

Flex 40 means that as long as you get your 40+ hours in and support the meetings you need to support, you can work any hours you want. While this also means they expect you to make up missed time like doctors appointments and even sick time if possible, it is a great deal.

The people I worked with there are the most intelligent, hard working and yet down-to-earth people I have ever met. It was a pleasure going to work every day.

Cons

The company can no longer afford to reward loyalty or even hard work. With tight budgets and fewer and smaller contracts, it is all cold numbers and superficial criteria. Yes, the stock price is at an all time high, but lower-level employees don't feel like the good days are back.

Advice to Management

Please understand that after several years of major reductions in force, every single employee is above average. While it is nice to reward performance, many employees who were considered high performers a few years ago find themselves closer to the bottom even after increasing their value to the company.

    Pros

    Benefits were great. Savings plan was awesome.

    Cons

    Lockheed management just going through the motions.
    Lockheed is a government contractor; Lockheed basically just processed my pay and benefits. I worked inside the federal government and was told not to have any personal conversations any with government workers. It was very isolating and lonely.
