    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gained plenty of experience managing dollar values above and beyond what my peers were committed to in commercial organizations. The uniqueness of the products were amazing. Even as part of the business team, we were all treated as equals which is rare in an engineering organization. Most of the management are very proactive in challenging employees and keeping morale high.

    Cons

    It's a slow industry with very extended timelines. You don't really get to prove yourself unless you stay onboard in one program for a long, long time (think something like 10 years). Management decisions come slowly and somewhat indecisively. However, they want results the second they snap their fingers. And then they change their mind. Overall, the industry itself is slowing down and companies such as Lockheed Martin are increased bidding activity in an effort to maintain its backlog and revenue levels.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be some type of way to unclog the talent pool. There's a bunch of buddy managers who get kept around managing nobody. At the same time, it doesn't allow fresh blood to develop in the leadership ranks. The company is very heritage focused - everything from its processes to its management style. Needs to get efficient and lose the yes people.
