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

    Pros

    For a large company, Lockheed Martin cares about their employees. HR actually helped with placement, and with severance placement when I was laid off.

    Cons

    As is usual with defense contractors, their hiring and firing is very much based on how much money Congress is spending in a current year.

    Advice to Management

    Please, get back more into the Space Exploration field. I realize Congress isn't funding NASA, but surely there's some money to be made on space-based R&D and exploration.


  2. "Great learning and growth opportunity for aerospace engineers."

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Independence - opportunities to make decisions and take responsibility.
    Growth - increasing levels of responsibility as desired.
    Technical - the work itself is challenging but meaningful.
    Benefits - great medical, dental, life, and other insurance; 401k matching; events, etc.
    Great pay

    Cons

    Management is often caught up in the political environment that comes with corporate structure.
    New ideas are often not appreciated or unheard.
    A rating system that compares coworkers, often unjustly.
    Can lay you off in a moments notice, regardless of whether you are doing great work or not (no time to prepare).
