I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Tons of leadership training, ability to transfer within the company, solid and clear path to promotion, especially at junior levels. Met some great managers and engineers. Strongly motivate leaders to mentor others and it is a team atmosphere, not competitive within. Definitely recommend, especially to young career folks or those who like the structure and stability of a large company. Plus the stock has been killing it lately in the market.

Cons

Federal budgets are declining and therefore LM budgets too - they have been tightening belt and doing layoffs. Not a fast pace of change. Depends on what work you do and what you're interested in, but I never really liked the whole "blowing stuff up" part of the company.

Advice to Management

IS&GS policy on telecommuters paying for their own travel took this high-pot outside the company.

    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.
