    Great pay/benefits, job security, unique projects. Can work from home, which is wonderful, and makes long distance relationships easier to handle.

    Make common tools great. Take more time designing good plans from the beginning instead of just winging it and fixing issues later. Do things right.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are lots of very interesting and challenging problems to work on. The work is very rewarding and fulfilling. I've worked in 3 different business areas so there's quite a bit of opportunity to move around if that's what you want. There are locations all over the US. I have always been impressed with the extremely intelligent and talented people I've worked with during the 15 years I've worked there.

    Cons

    It's a very, very big company and there is substantial management overhead. There isn't a real strong technical career path for mid-level engineers or beyond. The benefits keep getting worse.

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

    Pros

    The salary, 401k options and overall benefits were good. Will wait to see if they try to buy me out of my pension in a few years. But that was about it.

    Cons

    Being subject to poor management, which protects 'club members' when layoffs occur. The company has no interest in retaining the best talent, which has been amply displayed.

    Advice to Management

    Too many to list.

    Advice to Management

    What keeps us here?
