    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.

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

    Pros

    Stability, is probably the best positive I can give....people sit in cubicles for YEARS and add no value but stay employed. If job stability is very important to you, come onboard! If you are looking for a rewarding career in which you can affect change and be part on something bigger than ones self....keep looking unless you are part of the “Diversity Club” that has taken over Lockheed.

    Cons

    “Don’t worry be happy” that is the leadership credo at Lockheed, accomplishing important things is only for those in “leadership” positions, they will take credit for any and ALL ideas that deliver results while those that slave away in a faceless “Dilbert” environment get....wait for it....more work!! with absolutely no actual recognition that would matter. Promotions or significant raises are saved for those in the “Diversity” Club, but they will give hollow “thank you’s” or ridiculous “Team Building” activities to soothe their shallow consciences.

    Advice to Management

    Get a flipping clue! Oh yeah....that won’t happen until the financial results from the Diversity Club really shows how low the stock can go.

    Pros

    This location is the best.
    Basketball/Racquetball Court (needs to be renovated).
    Fitness Center with Awesome view of red rocks, eagles nest, downtown Denver.
    Numerous nearby hiking trails (Jeffco Open Space).
    One onsite walking path (right in front of red rocks and an eagles nest).
    Lots of wildlife to see, especially deer.
    Rooftop parking.
    Cafeteria (hosted by Eurest) with atrium and patio seating (again great views).
    Lobby coffee shop right next to a big aquarium.
    A massive Koi Pond to relax next to.

    Cons

    Basketball/Racquetball Court needs to be renovated.

    Advice to Management

    Promote all of the perks of this location, especially at hiring events. Add additional perks to this location and upgrade the rest of the locations across the company using this location as a model.
