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

    Pros

    Overall good company; can't be #1 for 20+ years and not doing something right. Have seen strategic hiring instead of reactive hiring; good way to get good people acclimated to company culture before starting a project and being somewhat sequestered at a client site. Lot's opportunity for career broadening and enhancement. In some cases, even opportunities of career change as emerging projects needs evolve.

    Cons

    Depending on where you work, the managerial chain could be somewhat long. Could at time make things slow for resolution if you have issues. However, that is to be expected in a company so huge.

    Advice to Management

    Make good on recent initiatives.
