    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Options to move around, good salary range, interesting hardware.

    Cons

    Things can move very slowly, management isn't the greatest, most that are promoted into those roles are just on track to reach the next level. Work satisfaction is very dependent on the business unit and location you're working in.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employee growth and work to help employee's find their niche, where they will be more productive and happy.

    Pros

    Management does not micro manage. Which is good. It's a great place to learn and they take care of you.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hands off makes it hard to know if you're moving in the right direction.

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

    Pros

    Well established company with extensive processes in place. Train is provided and is extensive. Benefits are stellar as well. Many programs offer opportunities.

    Cons

    Too much red tape in place, seems like every move is scrutinized by upper management. Management is too heavy and leadership growth is limited for Senior Manager level or above.

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

    Pros

    Lockheed has excellent benefits. 9/80 schedule and great 401k contributions. Nobody holds you down from excelling and in my experience if you perform you will be rewarded. I have heard complaints that promotions are slow and raises are low. This is not true. Raises are slow if you are average. Their are many smart people at Lockheed so standing out is tough. I will say that there are many older employees so in the near future there is going to be a massive opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    My only real gripe is that for a major company the IT budget is awful. It's obvious the first place to cut money from a gov contract is IT.

    Advice to Management

    Increase your focus on getting tools to automate simple work so we can focus more on problem solving and analysis.

    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Littleton, CO

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

    Pros

    Work at LM is always performed under vigorous schedules. You are expected to know your stuff, and deliver on time. The great thing for me was to work on the Orion space ship for Mars. This brought me great satisfaction. Plus having the opportunity to see the factory, and capsule mockups.

    Cons

    One had better have his work face on - the deadlines are firm and expectations are high. Oddly, this is just as much a Pro as a Con.

    Pros

    Strong Technical Business
    Talent Development
    Strong Leadership

    Cons

    The higher you go up, it becomes more of a Work/Life Integration

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop the talent pipeline

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work schedule. An amazing opportunity to work on a variety of space missions. Experiencing an actual launch has been the most exciting part of working for the company.

    Cons

    Seems as though the company is losing in the battle for innovation in the aerospace industry. Definitely lacks career development. You have to play the game!

    Advice to Management

    There are too many managers. It is not fair to employees that the person who is ultimately responsible for their compensation only interfaces with the employee 2-3 times a year. They should know more about what we do day-to-day.
