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

    Pros

    - Great work life balance
    - There are areas of cutting edge technologies
    - Relatively easy to move to other geographic regions
    - Relatively easy to move to another program (most people stay in a role for at least a year before changing positions)
    - Great benefits
    - In the past, great opportunity for growth, but this has been harder as the Government reduces spending
    - The company is pushing hard to branch into International markets
    - There are a wide range of opportunities and roles. Most people could find something that lines up with their strengths and career goals
    - Generally, there is a strong focus on the employees and the company does care.
    - Overall, I would highly recommend the company but one's experience can vary greatly depending on the project and management team.

    Cons

    - This may not be a fair generalization across the corporation, but I feel it has lost touch with its core - strong engineering and development. I do not see the younger, 1-5 years of experience, talent being pushed technically as much as I would like. I feel the company should put more emphasis on rewarding and keeping good technical talent.

    Advice to Management

    - Refocus on being a technology company and not an IT service or management company. Well, it's not really one or the other, but if you do not keep and grow your technical talent, it ill be hard to continue to be successful in the future.
    - Require managers to remain at least somewhat technical.
    - Too many layers of management. Become a flatter organization that can better compete with the smaller, flatter companies. The days of huge 10 year programs are over.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Great experience - Federal services, technological competencies, and highly methodical systems engineering.

    Cons

    Military-industrial complex - but not all of L-M's business

    Advice to Management

    Profit-sharing
