I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Better than average compensation. The people who stay tend to stay for a very long time. Your experience depends on what business area/program you work for. HQ tends to be a little more modern while some of the other divisions might have mgmt. techniques that date back to the Mad Men era. Very tolerant of telecommuting- although it seems to be pulling back a bit on this recently. Most coworkers are competent, pleasant and good to work with- but again this could depend on which program you are on.

Cons

Company is not afraid to reorganize organizational structure and shuffle mgmt. I basically get a new boss and/or department every 18 months (or sooner). This does not allow for much workforce stability or long term strategic planning. Congressional budget issues and sequestration are a big concern and as a result, company has been downsizing across the board to cut costs. Just read the papers and you will see facilities are being closed and layoffs enacted.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are one of the biggest contractors in the Government why many positions to offer at competitive pay rates.

    Cons

    Very confusing business practices that create communication issue between coworkers and management. Very poor health insurance and vacation benefits and very minimal incentive bonuses and raises.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing and delegating all your work load and just hire more workforce with less management and assistant managers. Lockmatin concentrates to much at the management level instead of the true workforce doing the work that way downsizing because wages wont be needed.

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

    Pros

    Cool products, excellent flexibility and work/life balance. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Salary not great for software engineers. Because of the excess of 40-50 year old engineers, it is very hard for a young, high-achieving engineer to advance. Because of government customer, lots of red tape and paperwork. Cumbersome engineering processes.

    Advice to Management

    When you pick out young engineers to develop and train, put your money where your mouth is. Take risks, give promotions where they are deserved. Value strong performance over years of experience.
