    Great bosses, pay and insight to the overall corporation.

    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.
