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

    Pros

    Great pay, good benefits, excellent retirement and pension if you are lucky.

    Cons

    This environment is highly competitive and employs top candidates. In order to excel you have to be willing to do what others won't while increasing your value and knowledge within your area of expertise.

    I wish I had taken adavantage of their college internships when pursuing my BS. They also have a great Leadership Development program designed for those pursuing degrees while currently working. The experience and exposure you get while rotating through the various business units is priceless.

    All-in-all you get out what you put into it. If you are self-sufficient and willing to seek in order to find answers, this environment will surely challenge you in many different aspects of your career.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to for upward movement. Great opportunities to work on some cool projects.

    Cons

    Large company, so you can get lost in the weeds, so to speak. Wish medical insurance was a little better, but it's still pretty good. Some programs work massive amounts of overtime.

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

    Pros

    Mostly great people, smart, sharp, talented, hard working. The business itself is exciting and you have a lot of pride being associated with a company like this. Reputation is fantastic and what this company does is cutting edge and trend setting.

    Cons

    There's definitely a good old boy network, where friends look out for friends. Management believes the first thing they hear about an employee, right or wrong. The employee performance management system is flawed and unethical: management must rate their team in order of value and importance and it's all dependent on what the manager (or the managers manager) thinks of the employee. People are kept around because of who they know, not what they know.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Rate management based on feedback from their teams. Don't put people with zero leadership OR people skills in positions of leadership.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Great 9x80 schedule where you get every other Friday off.
    Good vacation policy.
    Great benefits.
    Good salary.
    Excellent team to work with.

    Cons

    Limited career growth. Once you are in an area, it's hard to move around. With less than 8 levels, it takes 10 years to move up two levels and the majority cap at level 5 for the rest of their career. Almost impossible to move up.
