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

    Pros

    The compensation was fantastic and benefits were good in terms of tuition, retirement, and health. You have to really take control of your own career and (obviously) work hard, continue to learn in your discipline, and network with others. You will have opportunity to work on very very interesting projects.

    Additionally, if you get involved with pursuit of research contracts and earn a few wins over time, you will be held in very high regard and asked to participate in a number of projects as people get to know that you do excellent work. This takes tremendous sustained effort, but, then again, anything worth doing in life is worth working hard to achieve.

    Cons

    very very process laden environment which I suppose is necessary for such a large organization to function effectively . There are a handful of less productive people who are very well socially connected and seem to advance because of this.

    Incentive to younger workers should be pursued. Younger workers leave after a few years 3-5.

    Advice to Management

    Pursue incentives for younger workers, something that will want them to stay longer. Create incubator startup environments so that those so inclined can pursue more high-risk high-reward projects.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    I worked here for a little over five years. I started with them right out of college. While I learned a lot in these years, lately they are slowing down in business and employee morale is low.

    - Lots of training classes available
    - Paid for my education (although I do not believe they do this anymore)
    - Lots of work locations
    - Some telecommuting options

    Cons

    By the time I recently left, it was:
    - A horrible dog-eat-dog type of environment
    - Several layers of managers and people who "think" they're managers that actual managers are afraid to put back in their place
    - Budget pressures felt companywide which caused:
     - extremely low morale
     - months of reorganization/ layoff warnings, again
     - managers to tell employees there are no more resources for training or additional opportunities
     - no more than 2% a year raises

    Advice to Management

    Leave. There are too many of you.
