    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have is, possibly, try very hard simplify processes. The processes are accurate and extremely detailed. Some could be less detailed.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, managers allow their employees to do their job without micromanagement.

    Program managers could have a better understanding of the procurement process, and be realistic with their goals.

    Advice to Management

    Educate project and program managers to the picture my process, so they can establish realistic schedules and budgets.

    "Engineer - Have Perspective"

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

    Pros

    First - The Moorestown experience will vary greatly depending on what your specialty is (engineering, software, manufacturing, finance, etc), what group you're in, who you report to, and whether you're in one of the unions or not.

    Second - Most of the people here are boomer LM lifers. They have been doing a decent job of hiring new blood over the last couple of years - nevertheless, most people here have been here for 20+ years and lack perspective on what life is like outside of the warm cocoon they have been enveloped in for decades.

    The pros: I do very interesting design work with virtually no paperwork. The people I work with are very helpful and happy to share knowledge and expertise. My manager is helpful and always looking to give us new tools and find ways to grow business. I'm busy from the second I walk in until the second I leave, but I am not stressed. Oh, and I work 40 hours a week, unless I need/want to work more, and then if I do, I am paid OT. Worth adding - the main campus is 20/25 minutes outside of Philadelphia.

    Cons

    The cons: The culture is one of grievance because the typical employee here lacks perspective.
     They have it very good, but they used to have it slightly better, so Everything is Bad. I am a supporter of organized labor, but the Moorestown unions don't seem to be the best representation of labor. The facilities (main campus) are wretched. It's actually embarrassing. The bathrooms are constantly in a state of disrepair, the halls smell like bathrooms, and the whole place looks like a 1950's hospital.

    Advice to Management

    You have a well paying company that is an easy 20-25 minute drive from Philadelphia, one of the few affordable cities left in the country. Surely you can attract young talent with this. Fix the facilities and make the main campus look like a workplace suitable for 2018 and you will thrive.

    Pros

    Very interesting projects. Challenging and engagaing work, yet good work/life balance. Very ethical teammates and management

    Rules of defense contracting make for some frustrating realities. Budgets and schedules are always too aggressive. Pay is low compared to similar work in non-defense companies. Very bureaucratic workplace
