    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I didn't get laid off.

    Cons

    They used to be pay for school through the UTC scholar program, now that's gone so not much of a reason to stay. Little to no chance for career progression. If salary people leave, they don't backfill the position. Instead they just transfer to work to other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be accountable and hold each other accountable! You wonder why you lose good people, try doing something to make them want to stay.
