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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, interesting work, great team, decent social clubs, paid college. My team has a good mix of younger and older folks, so diverse input, with knowledge to back it.

    Cons

    A lot of folks are not happy with the benefits. The college pay back is a little low in my opinion

    Advice to Management

    Increase the amount paid for college. 10k a year is barely enough for 3 classes at a cheap school.

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as an intern

    Pros

    The office had a great community feel. I learned a lot while I was there. By the time I left, I felt like I was prepared for a future career within the aerospace sector.

    Cons

    The workload was sometimes too light which resulted in me feeling slightly underappreciated as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge the interns a bit more. You might find it surprising of what they're capable of if given the chance.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits, great people, opportunity to work hands on with hardware.

    Cons

    Training is very minimal, as a new hire out of college I was left to my on devices for months trying to figure out what I was supposed to do.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with Co-Ops and new hires, let them shadow more experienced engineers more closely to learn the procedures.
