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

Pros

Progressive technologies and brand. Excellent compensation and benefits. Excellent job growth/development potential with the ability to move laterally or vertically. The company is transparent about performance management, factors and qualifications considered for promotion, salary ranges, and development opportunities.

Cons

Culture of employees generates sense of entitlement which limits the engagement and results. The leadership has not been trained to balance the needs of the employees with management's objectives and business goals.

Advice to Management

Invest in leadership training that includes successfully coaching and motivating people. The workforce is changing but, the culture is not.

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

    Pros

    I work with some of the brightest people in their fields. All of our projects are technically challenging and interesting. The company is large and so there are many opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    It can be a lot of work to get something accomplished. There is just so much red tape sometimes. A large company has a lot of inertial mass and so does not change course quickly.

    "Mostly decent jobs, but constantly at risk because of uncertainty of government funding."

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Can be interesting work. There is a flexible work schedule and the ability to work remotely, if the position allows it. There are lots of talented people to work with.

    Cons

    The performance evaluation system is flawed and allows incompetent people to benefit while talented reliable employees don't get the recognition that they deserve. There is some "empire building" by certain managers.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management seems to have more focus on its own success rather than the long-term success of the company and the individual contributors that make that company success possible.
