    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

    Pros

    Great benefits: vacation, 401k matching, medical and good pay. Engaging, challenging work, lots of different kinds of jobs and opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Work environment is very dependent on the business unit and culture of a particular program. Some programs are fast paced and modern while others are slow paced, very bureaucratic, highly political and outdated. Depending on the program you could be working on the latest tech or you could be working on very outdated tech from legacy projects.

    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.

    Great leadership - the company spends a lot of time preparing leaders,
