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

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits and great people. Paid school. Transfer to anywhere in the country or world if there is an opening.

    Cons

    Live and die by the program or government contract. Typical issues with people that have been in the same job forever, fear of change.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling people to be happy they have a job.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good environment, flexible work schedule and okay benefits.

    Cons

    Some of the workforce is aging and seems to have contempt for younger hires which can make assimilating and training difficult.

    Advice to Management

    A better on-boarding process is necessary for new hires. Took month before I was able to do anything effectively.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I like my coworkers. Hard working folks that truly know their jobs.

    Functional management has always supported me pursuing (and paying for) my master's degree and additional training. They really want you to be happy where you are and if not they try their best to move you where you might be.

    Project managers are less interested in your personal growth, especially if it means edging out an extra buck off you on a contract but I suppose that's why functional management exists to complement them.

    Cons

    Contract work can be difficult. You typically do a lot of flying (but with work from home) if you're not onsite. If you're an onsite analyst you may be asked to relocate and the locations aren't always ideal.

    Project managers should be more willing to dish out some additional training, especially when I know for a fact they're earning the company two to four times off of me what I earn in a single year.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Experience, some of the benefits, great coworkers

    Cons

    Too big and creates the very situations they most want to avoid, too much "red tape" makes it hard to get anything done, people are a number

    Advice to Management

    Please go back and look at what used to work and start doing it again!

    Pros

    Great collaborative and talented group of engineers to work with

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, fair and equitable treatment of employees, challenging and rewarding work, competent coworkers and supervisors.

    Cons

    The defense industry is subject to the whims of politicians, and this resulted in a decline in available funding to the project on which I was working.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify across additional defense / intelligence sectors, and also cross-over into related commercial industries.
