    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent 401k plan, some very smart co-workers, immediate management listens to your aspirations and helps you achieve your goals. They hired me into a software engineer role with very little prior experience, and I appreciate the opportunity and the time in my current role. This varies based on role, but my experience has been that work life balance here is awesome. Every other Friday off, time flexing and I rarely need to work overtime and if I do it's typically only an hour or two here and there, YRMV.

    Cons

    Health plan is laughably poor for a company this size and they do not offer alternative options. Pay is below market for experience in the Denver area despite being told quarter after quarter how profitable the company is. Some employees are definitely here due to tenure and waiting to retire, it is the kind of place where you can coast if you are inclined, for me that's very frustrating. As can probably be expected everything happens very slowly here, from getting assigned to new projects to getting promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the horrible "Commitments" system you use for performance review and pay raises, an outstanding employee will end up hardly ahead of a sub par employee until at least 5 - 10 years into the company. Share the success of the company with the technical employees more than you currently do.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really liked the flexability to identify and work my own issues without constantly being supervised.

    Cons

    Lockheed Martin is definately one of those 'big companies' so supporting security programs was often a challenge. I was lucky; the TBMCS and AOC/WSI program managers supported me. Senior execs always looked 'down' on security though.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your security program. We're there to help, not to be a hindrance.

    Pros

    Options to move around, good salary range, interesting hardware.

    Cons

    Things can move very slowly, management isn't the greatest, most that are promoted into those roles are just on track to reach the next level. Work satisfaction is very dependent on the business unit and location you're working in.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employee growth and work to help employee's find their niche, where they will be more productive and happy.

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

    Pros

    9/80 schedule - every other Friday off. Week off between Christmas & New Year. Vested matching program

    Cons

    Lots of focus on what was done in the past, govt programs and contracts. Less on future. Little diversity. Leadership is hierarchical and militaristic, and only wants underlings to support their ideas. Low morale. Lots of talk about values, ethics, but in reality it's all about who knows who. Future of company is tied to administration, which is scary in itself.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees - they are there because they want the company to succeed, and have great ideas. Stop spending so much money on leaders.
