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

Pros

Flexible schedule, good benefits & a lot of opportunity (at least early on in your career). Cool products that are fun to see in action (although most of us don't get to see them enough)

Cons

Too big! Despite the effort to stay organized, working here makes me believe it is impossible for a company this big to be efficient. Too many employees/managers in meetings all day talking & not enough people actually working.

Advice to Management

Cut out the middle management. There are too many chiefs & not enough Indians.
If the "Indians" have less "chiefs" to answer to they will have more time to do the actual work.

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

    Pros

    Competitive starting salaries, good benefits, interesting and rewarding work. Locations all over the US and world so many opportunities to travel and relocate.

    Cons

    Dingy cube culture, some leaders are good and others not so much depending on what programs you work on. Company is in cost cutting mode with due to government budget cuts so you're expected to work on more contracts than you should. The starting salaries are competitive but its hard to advance rapidly. I've seen employees apply for jobs at a higher level, however they will sometimes keep you at your current level when getting the job, doesn't make sense.

    I will say with such a big company there are different work environments depending on your location and programs you work on.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on bureaucracy where possible and modernize the workplace and environment.
