    Pros

    Lockeed-Martin is one of the largest DoD contracting companies and have a wide range of employment opportunities and contract vehicles. There are many sites across the notion and overseas so you could always transfer to a new position if you wanted a new scenery.

    Cons

    Because LM is such a large company, relationships with management are not as personal as I would like.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in culture building

    "flexibility"

    Current Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in Huntsville, AL
    Current Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in Huntsville, AL
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    The flexible work schedule is nice. If I have something personal that I need to take care of, chances are I can flex my time. The ability to earn overtime. some companies salary positions offer no compensation for over time, the current job I have pays straight time when hours exceed 45 weekly.

    Cons

    Often times scope and schedule are very very demanding. Management tends to promise the impossible, even if you warned them that what they promised in the amount of time it is promised is not feasable.

    Pros

    Well organized company, good software tools with good benefits.
    They have some very good in-house training along with some mandatory training.

    Cons

    Not real good at integrating new hires or new businesses. It takes a long time to learn the Lockheed Martin way of doing business.

    Advice to Management

    The advice would be for better hands on training for new hires and some better promotion pathways that are easily understood by the employees.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of different opportunities, different geographic locations, different skills to learn, products to work on. Experts in all different disciplines across the company. They pay for graduate school.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost or overlooked unless you're outspoken, marketing yourself within the workplace, or you happen to have a great manager. The company is not big on taking risks. The defense industry can be a somewhat stifling for creativity, new technology. Health benefits have gotten worse over the last 5-6 years. Salary is not as high as other industries. Corporate culture is all about "diversity" and other buzzwords and being politically correct.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and empower your employees.
