I worked at Lockheed Martin as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible work schedule (9/80)
Working on an exciting project
Nice and helpful people
Virtual work available for full-time employees

I enjoyed working with everyone on my team. Everyone was laid-back and helpful. The technology was also exciting. They offer good learning resources (Books 24x7), and they have learning seminars on things like Air Traffic Control. These were fun to attend, and I learned a lot from them.

Cons

Pay below average
Business is completely dependent on the federal budget. In IS&GS, especially in the DC area, I don't see this changing any time soon.
Employment cuts mean that employees remaining could be forced to different work. Some software engineers had to become testers instead because of layoffs.

I wanted to work here full-time after being an intern. My software team lead was very interested in having me back, but my manager did not seem to have much interest in what I was doing. During the school year, I was kept on payroll. I ended up getting an offer for full-time employment after emailing my manager several times. This offer was not competitive with other offers I received, and Lockheed did not seem willing to negotiate. Management seemed to want to hire cheaper software engineers to replace the higher-paid ones that had been laid off. This did not make me feel good about my long-term prospects with the company.
