    Pros

    Great team of professionals working together with few bad apples. If you like to be a professional and shine with others of similar type, this is the place.

    Cons

    Management was "lax" due to good reviews from the customer, and failed to recognize creeping mediocrity until it was too late and the customer replaced them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen carefully to what the worker bees tell you about how things are going--don't be satisfied just because you received a good report card from the customer.

    Pros

    Excellent company with great benefits and great people to work for and with.

    Cons

    Upper management decides what should be marketed. No out of the box thinking unless it's on a defense contract or federal contract, and must meet approval of a graybeard panel.

    Advice to Management

    When an IR&D topic comes up, explore it and make sure that it doesn't fit the business strategy before it goes in the trash can.

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

    Pros

    neat projects; worked on a number of neat projects for a great customer

    Cons

    The company won't even provide free coffee. Management offered no raises due to the bad economy yet were redoing the VPs office as the previous VPs office wasn't nice enough for him. If people on a project are under performing they will add resources therefore spending money and will cut others positions who weren't underperforming to pay for fixing the other underperforming part of the project.

    Advice to Management

    The people at every level actually matter to your bottom line.

    Pros

    1) A lot of time off.
    2) No work related stress what so ever.
    3) If your in school this is the perfect job to have since out of an 8hr work day you really only have 40 min of true work.
    4) get paid to surf the internet.
    5) As soon as I'm done with school or a better oppurtunity I'm out.

    Cons

    1) No stress what so ever so after 1 day alittle stress would be welcomed since you can only surf the internt so long.
    2) No room for growth if your interested in security.
    3) Low pay but what can you expext with a job were all you do is sit and watch movies online.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees and maybe they will stay

    Pros

    Large company with many options. Company has respect in the workforce. Decent, though not outstanding, benefit package. They have many good people working there that will support you even if there is a lack of support from senior mngt. Good education benefits.

    Cons

    Higher level mngt give no support to employees. No follow through on promised promotions, no support when contract ends, they just dump you. Salaries tend not to be competitive, Senior mngt has very poor communication with employees, lack of direction in many fields (especially healthcare it).

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees. Treat them fairly, realize that they represent your company to the customer.
