    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Huge opportunities for changes in skill development within the company. Highly ethical environment. Many sites now do 9/80 work weeks giving you every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Company is tied to government spending and therefore there are layoff potentials. Career expansion opportunities often involve ability to relocate

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

    Pros

    Great work and excellent benefits (except for the health insurance).

    Cons

    Health insurance is expensive, has high deductibles, and can be hard to deal with. The work/life balance wasn't always the greatest, but overtime was only required in surges to meet deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Provide PPO and high deductible plans of Blue Cross and Blue Shield for health insurance and eliminate Aetna.
