I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

The work and employees were great

Management told us we were numbers and could leave if we didn't like it. Heard that manager is no longer there.

Advice to Management

Don't treat your employees like trash.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large stable company with locations all over the world
    Interesting work vital to defense and civil applications
    Opportunity to move to other business units/locations
    Decent benefits
    Decent initial salary at all levels (junior, mid level, senior)
    Management pays attention to what's going on, but doesn't get in the way of doing your job

    Cons

    Working for a good manager is hit or miss - there are a few good, some bad, most mediocre. You have to learn to manage your manager. I only saw one who was really horrible, Lots of status reports, yet seem to be surprised when bad news happens.
    LM has an affinity for discarding senior engineers.
    Poor raises every year - zero to 2%
    Benefits keep eroding away - no more pension, vacation accrual cuts, insurance rates keep getting more and more expensive

    Advice to Management

    Let people do what they do best. I witnessed an outstanding engineer move into management where he performed horribly. Stop the culture of making people believe they have to move into management to be sucessful

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Occasionally working with cutting edge hardware. Autonomy to do the work you need to get done. Travel to unique places

    Cons

    Suffocating process, extremely dated corporate culture. Projects drag on for years. Software is often blamed for cost overruns Most things you work on are extremely old (C / ADA). Most people have a pension and are just trying to not get laid off before they hit their magic years of service. Huge compensation rift between pensioners and non-pensioners.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourselves accountable for failures. Despite multiple failures the same people continue to climb the ladder
