    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work and excellent benefits (except for the health insurance).

    Cons

    Health insurance is expensive, has high deductibles, and can be hard to deal with. The work/life balance wasn't always the greatest, but overtime was only required in surges to meet deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Provide PPO and high deductible plans of Blue Cross and Blue Shield for health insurance and eliminate Aetna.

    Pros

    Lockheed Martin hires a good amount of fresh college grads, and is a great way to start a career. I liked the people I worked with, and everyone was nice.

    Cons

    The work can be a bit repetitive or not as exciting as other jobs.

    Pros

    Great benefits and flexible hours

    Cons

    When layoffs occur, it comes from higher up so they may not know the importance of the person they are laying off. They should get more guidance from technical leads and management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more prior to layoffs

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

    Pros

    The people here are very helpful and want you to succeed. They understand that you don't know everything, and are willing to set aside time to explain things.

    I also like the Agile software development approach, as well as the huge emphasis this company puts on being ethical.

    The ability to move around to different areas, not only within the single site, but also the entire network.

    The evaluation for promotions is performance-based, which I feel is most fair.

    Cons

    Since we are working with legacy code, we are not at the cusp of new technology. In certain areas, they are, but not with software.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Good benefits.
    Company enables me to make project implementation decisions and likewise expects results.

    Cons

    Company is quick to not stand behind you when suppliers complain. You are at fault until proven innocent.
    HR in processing takes f o r e v e r.

    Advice to Management

    Someone in upper management read a 1" paper back book and employed a Change the Culture program for performance reviews. This at best simplified the commits activities.
