    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    High level of integrity throughout the company, open communications, and sincere interest in doing the right thing.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I need to come up with twenty words of cons. When in reality after 41+ years in IT, I have no cons for Lockheed Martin. They are not perfect, but highly acceptable.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    To keep this short and sweet. We get good pay, good benefits, and good work. It'll never be be "perfect" job, because it's so large they can't mold it to your needs. Understand that it's a massive company with all the associated struggles. Beyond that, there are plenty of opportunities, but you have to learn to look for them and take them. LM will not hand you opportunities on a silver platter.

    Cons

    If you want fast paced, long hours, and high pay then go somewhere else. If you want to work a solid job and with solid benefits and time then go to LM.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Lots of great opportunities for exciting work if you're driven (and don't mind working a ton of hours). Management, for the most part, is enlightened and focused on customer satisfaction and employee engagement

    Cons

    Great place to work until it isn't. Some in leadership place little or no value in longer-term employees who have a lot of "tribal knowledge" about the programs, customers,, etc. Those managers struggle to see a role for these employees in their focus on transformation. This drives strong talent out the door and leaves few teachers/mentors for the hoards and hoards of early career peopole theyre hiring

    Lockheed really has a culture of putting their employee's growth above instantaneous utility.

    Cons

    This is a big company steeped in heritage and process. It moves slowly and is getting behind on workplace innovation.
