    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 10 years)

    Pros

    Company has strong ethics and company values, provides very good paying jobs for high performing technical career persons, emphasis on personal accountability, setting and meeting goals and objectives, attracts, grows and retains a strong engineering and technical skills base.

    Cons

    As a larger enterprise with strong relationship to government agencies for contracts, decision making and implementing change is a lengthy process. Major industry concern - employment level is very sensitive to the prevailing political climate toward defense and aerospace spending.

    Advice to Management

    Increase communication frequency from different management layers, increase budget for personal development, continue and encourage more use of six sigma process improvement methodologies.
