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

    Pros

    Good pay, amazing programs, smart people, inspiring and prideful work. I see myself staying here a long time.

    Cons

    Health benefits took a harsh toll in 2018, and while the work location is gorgeous it is not convenient to places outside of Littleton.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.
    Working on really cool projects.
    Directly helping our service men and women.

    Cons

    Benefits have changed to be cheaper.
    Not competitive pay compared to other companies.
    Behind in change compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Retire, so many older management using out dated ways. Let the next wave of new bright minded people help the company in management.

    Pros

    Lots of development freedom. Great learning experience, never a lack of knowledge on tap.

    Cons

    Too much of a good thing... almost no structure, making requirements gather different.

    Pros

    Great missions, great people, flexible work schedule, 9/80 work week.

    Cons

    Benefits have dramatically decreased in the 15+ years I've worked here. Executive management and HR continually try to claim the opposite. Also, talent is walking out the door every day, and I've seen nothing to reverse this trend. The company is sitting on a ton of cash, and yet very little get distributed to common employees. New bonus plan is an insult for mid career employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the companies around you paying more, bonuses more, and genuinely trying to keep employees. Your arrogance will eventually run this place out of business.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lockheed Martin does stuff that very few other companies do or are capable of doing. Putting stuff into space is hard. Making stuff work on Mars is hard. Building the next generation of fighter aircraft is hard. But these are a few of the things that the company does everyday. This mission is inspiring. Otherwise...work life balance here is fantastic...very amenable to employee needs to deal with real life.

    Cons

    The company is, to some extent, stuck in the mid 20th century with respect to the processes it uses to get work done. Part of this is mandated by the customers that it works with...part of it is self-inflicted. Also...and this is not so much a con as a basic fact...it frequently takes a long time to put some missions into orbit...you can work at this company for 15-20 years or longer and still not see stuff you worked on "in the field".

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to modernize the way we do business...don't be afraid to give more authority to the people in the trenches.
