    Management does not micro manage. Which is good. It's a great place to learn and they take care of you.

    Sometimes the hands off makes it hard to know if you're moving in the right direction.

    Pros

    Well established company with extensive processes in place. Train is provided and is extensive. Benefits are stellar as well. Many programs offer opportunities.

    Cons

    Too much red tape in place, seems like every move is scrutinized by upper management. Management is too heavy and leadership growth is limited for Senior Manager level or above.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People oriented, room to grow, making a difference to the world. The leadership works very hard to energize the workforce at the team and at the individual level.

    Cons

    The only con would be working for a large corporation. Even though there are many small projects and teams there is a large company attitude that influences all decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the people oriented approach. Continue to take carefully thought out risks.

    Pros

    Great pay, good benefits, excellent retirement and pension if you are lucky.

    Cons

    This environment is highly competitive and employs top candidates. In order to excel you have to be willing to do what others won't while increasing your value and knowledge within your area of expertise.

    I wish I had taken adavantage of their college internships when pursuing my BS. They also have a great Leadership Development program designed for those pursuing degrees while currently working. The experience and exposure you get while rotating through the various business units is priceless.

    All-in-all you get out what you put into it. If you are self-sufficient and willing to seek in order to find answers, this environment will surely challenge you in many different aspects of your career.
