Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Stable company
Good internal processes and reviews
Interesting, high impact work

Cons

Smaller projects can be over managed internally like they are Billion Dollar programs
Glass ceiling for non management engineering track (although the ceiling is pretty high)
Review process is locally averaged so a team of high achievers cannot all be highly reviewed
Depending on the job or program a huge workload / hours is expected and not appreciated as above and beyond

Advice to Management

Track OTO (unpaid overtime) and include it as a factor in the review process
Ease the barriers for SMEs to work across business unit lines and include cross business unit work in goals and reviews

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    High technology, excellent reputation in the industry. Committed to providing excellent products. Full benefits.

    Cons

    Opportunities for useful training are non-existent; if you don't want to become a technical dinosaur, be prepared to get training on your own time and on your on dime. Raises are slim, and layoffs are getting more and more frequent. Work is cyclical due to defense spending. Meanwhile, the company is reporting record profits.

    Advice to Management

    Get a technical training budget and use it. Send people to training classes and workshops and seminars.
