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

Pros

Salary is great. Flexible time for work and personal business. Good support for career growth.

Cons

Horrific government like work culture. Very hierarchal management structure. Mired in process red tape and inefficiency. Seems like the company is obsessed with CYA messages and training. Seems like we have days at work that mirror "Office Space".

Advice to Management

Please change the work culture! Employees are no longer in the 50+ demographic!

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a greater focus on quality and less fast-paced pressure than in other manufacturers.

    Cons

    Because of multiple layers in departments, making any change is slow. Often innovators are not recognized in favor of less productive status maintainers.

    Advice to Management

    Lay out the number of workers reporting to each level of management and it becomes obvious where management is top heavy.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Every other friday off. Which is only at some lockheed locations. It depends on what business unit you're in.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Stuck in the 80's. No windows.

    I will say it is dependent on your location and business unit. This company is too big to trust one review written. Every business unit has it's own culture and almost functions as a different company.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain young talent you need to improve upon the culture and give some of the perks that younger companies have today.
