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

    Pros

    Amazing and intriguing programs to work on from Aerospace to Space Systems to Missiles...truly amazing the types of programs you get to work on! It is so well structured, I haven't experienced another company with better stucture, processes, procedures, policies. All well thought out and the employees actually follow it! Flex work options, awesome benefits and employee discounts! I miss getting paid weekly and 9/80 flex weeks! So easy to move around within the company! You can experience whatever you want once you are an internal employee.

    Cons

    It is extremely hard to get back into LM once you leave. I have been trying for 2 years and still haven't been able to get back w/them.
    I will also say that their compensation is a little lower than other companies i have worked for but the benefits are great. You can easily move around in the company but advancing from level to level can be tough.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The compensation was fair, and they offered the scale of support that you'd expect from a large company such as 24-hour technical support.

    Cons

    Tendency toward bureaucracy in terms of tying employees up with never-ending self evaluations and critiques, taking away from time doing the actual work that members were originally hired for. Also, no free lunch here, 'strictly business.

    Pros

    Great bosses, pay and insight to the overall corporation.

    Cons

    Wouldn't hire before I graduated- Experience should count as much as education. Bosses fought for me to stay to make money during my school year. Corporation wouldn't allow it.

    Advice to Management

    Let interns work throughout the school year.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Many locations and opportunities to relocate

    Cons

    Prefer "diverse workforce" to qualified workforce, so much so, that resumes are changed to match qualifications, and diversity hires' work is never challenged or corrected even when it causes harm to a contract.

    Advice to Management

    Hire based on merit, not kickbacks.

    Pros

    great company with potential to climb. great health and personal benefits.

    Cons

    in comparison to some companies, LM lacks training for their employees, especially new hires. LM tends to also be top heavy with many senior level managers and not enough new, integrated talent.

    Advice to Management

    please, please spend more time coming up with a training strategy for new employees. especially those who come straight from the academic world.

    Open to allowing individuals to explore different functions and roles; Great people with down to earth personalities work at the company; Exceptional CEO and Executive Leadership Team; Understand work life balance

    Talent development and management process lacks progression. Company needs to do a better job developing the leaders of tomorrow by placing individuals in true stretch assignments - and not waiting until they are fully prepared to take on leadership riles.
