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

Pros

The salaries are good and, depending, what skill sets you have, there is room to grow and opportunities to move around locations.

Cons

A minimum work week is 45 hours (only paid up to 40) but you are generally expected to work closer to 50 or 60. The politics are intense and career progression is largely dependent on making good connections up chain.
As long as you are willing to make the company priority number 1 and can network successfully, I would recommend LM.

Advice to Management

Actually follow through on trying to balance work load and allow employees more work-life balance. Despite many tools and company resources, many employees struggle with expectations, high stress and access to the right tools to be successful.

    Pros

    They work hard to make sure their employees are well cared for and have the tools they need to get the job done. Upward mobility is possible if you have an ambition to climb.

    Cons

    They could be better at helpig employees transition between jobs within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Help transitioning employees that want to stay with the company to stay with the company.

    "Company great overall but not “racially neutral" there is a racial undertone when it comes to employees."
