I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Opportunities for education, travel, and interfacing with co-workers and clients world wide.

Cons

Contract work can be affected by external, namely economic conditions. The company doesn't have a work through policy.

Advice to Management

Plan program work to retain your talented staff through the thin times. Too many good professionals are lost by the "by the contract" planning.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work on leading edge technology. Lots of openings for specific military skill sets if you are a veteran. Looks good on resume if you want to go work for another defense contractor.

    Cons

    If you are not in a technical or engineering type of position then pay raises are very slim or non existentent. Job dependent on the contract you are working on. If the contract ends then you are out of a job. Tough to get re-assigned or find a similiar position in another division and no relocation if you are not high enough on the food chain.
