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

    Pros

    Big company can support a good benefits package, with formal training and advancement programs. Has a lot of locations and divisions and can offer some job flexibility if one location falls on hard times or if you want to change jobs for another reason. There's even some interesting work if you're lucky enough to find it and keep it.

    Cons

    The worst thing is that it is generally expected that you will frequently work long hours (60 or more) without compensation: no extra pay or time off, nothing. A big company often means frustration in getting things done, always submitting forms or dealing with company bureaucracy. Like all defense companies, not a lot of long-term job security and many jobs don't translate well to other industries.

    Advice to Management

    The kind of people who rise to senior management positions tend to be people who live and breathe the job, for whom the 40 hour mark is only halfway through the week. However, the large majority of the company consists of people who will never be a director or VP, and don't want to be. They want to go to work and do a good job, then get home to their families before the kids are in bed. Stealing our time in uncompensated overtime is highly unethical, in strong contrast to the company's otherwise excellent business ethics.
