I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time

I enjoyed the weekly pay from Lockheed and the constant opportunity for change. Lots of interesting projects and locations for opportunities to move.

Not as much opportunity for cyber security as I would like.

Advice to Management

Do more to retain good employees.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Majority of people dislike their jobs at LM, you are in good company when you decide it is bad. Pay is good, and if you are popular with managers then you will get promoted and pay raises. Very few coworkers, smile, or talk to each other, which can become a positive. Also if you can wing it, a person can get away with cheating the system/coworkers (i.e. working less than 40hrs/wk, passing the buck, and doing no work) while getting promoted. Amazing place to park your rear end for 30yrs.!

    Cons

    Too many rules, the good old boy/gal system is super hard to penetrate. HR is not strong with employees, they are merely management tools. The evaluation system is based on how popular you are with management team not the amount of work you produce or your experience with the company. They want so badly young employees but do no know how to coach and retain them. Most work areas are poorly lit, old languishing facilities from the 1960's. They try to get rid of older workers it was obvious to us youngsters. Had to leave based on discrimination and bullying tactics that HR ignores. What a relief it is to work somewhere else!

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up! Acknowledge and TRUST your employees, they are not out to ruin YOUR position but enhance it. Make it a progressive place to work, rather than a negative environment. Most managers' act like they are put down by top management and flow the put downs' to the people. Consider a 40 hr work week for those who do not want 9 days/80 hrs - 9hr days get old. Adulation is earned, managers expect adulation based on title.

    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.
