    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Management tries hard to do right by the employees, as long as it doesn't cost anything. Great place for junior and mid-range employees. The company is doing some really cool things. Good benefits. Competitive pay.(good, not great)

    Cons

    Giant aerospace company suffers at the whim of the government budgets. Practices age discrimination. Promotions are rare. Raises are hit and miss. If you happen to work for a bad manager your life will be miserable. Thankfully most managers are not bad.
    Benefits get cut every year.

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

    Pros

    There is an undeniable thrill at the thought of working for Lockheed Martin, one of the big folks in the space industry. The people are generally really good people. The company--depending upon WHICH division you work for--can treat their people poorly. They are very flexible for work hours which is wonderful and they don't generally micromanage, another major plus. But overall, within a small number of years working here, the life will be sucked out of you, as will your love and admiration of NASA.

    Cons

    Their salary rating is a joke. They have a comp ratio system. Let's say your pay range for your job title is 50,000 - 70,000. If you are making near the 50k, you 'compensation ratio' is low, so you'll get a raise every year, usually. If you are at 60k then you're at the middle of your pay range and your comp ratio is 1, therefore, unless you're absolutely effing spectacular, your raise is zero. So how is this the middle of the 'payrange' when you pretty much can't get past the halfway point. And that includes no cost of living increase so you actually end up making less...

    Advice to Management

    Every division has different benefits and if you're in one of the 'poor' companies, its very demoralizing. And the comp ratio brilliance is just flat out insulting.
