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

    Pros

    Good pay and promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    Management spins off employees from LM Corporate to LM Operations Support to eliminate or greatly reduce pensions and other benefits. CEO and other get huge payments in their pensions while sticking it to long term employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and act with integrity. Employees should not be eliminated from benefits until all members of the corporation including executives are included.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is a large contractor for the government so there is a lot to choose from in regards to career field.

    Cons

    Upper management is slow to respond to issues. Have to kiss up a lot. No raises or promotions unless you know someone.

    Advice to Management

    Consider entry level employees that want to progress within the company.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Autonomy
    - Fairly important tasks for intern work
    - Good co-workers

    Cons

    - Work environment very dull (partially because this was a generic building which cycles through space contracts every few years)
    - Lack of intern programming. I was essentially just an entry employee who left after 3 months. This may also have been because of the particular contract and location

    Advice to Management

    Have more intern programs! Make those cube farms less dull!

    Pros

    The culture here is excellent. There is a high priority of customer satisfaction. Agile practices are a big plus. Everyone here wants to help me become the best I can be. There is no micro-management at all but all schedules are met.

    Cons

    I don't have a single con currently, and I do not think I will have any any time soon.

    Pros

    Lots of interesting technology leadership and development opportunities

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are adequate, but compensation increases and bonuses are discretionary and tend to favor those with lengthy tenure and personal relationships. Only company I've worked for with no universal performance-based variable comp plan below director level.

    Advice to Management

    Surprisingly little incentive to stay on board long-term and develop professionally, especially for a company this large and successful.
