    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.

    Pros

    Big company with a good ability to keep government contracts going = fairly stable.
    Lots of room to move around and grow.
    Decent benefits.
    Upper management seems very capable and proactive.
    Good ethics in the workplace.

    Cons

    Lockheed's IS&GS business unit is government services contracts only. That means the profit margin is tight and they nickle and dime their employees to make profit expectations.

    Advice to Management

    LM as a whole is doing well, but make sure you stay loyal to your employees.
