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

    Pros

    There are lots of very interesting and challenging problems to work on. The work is very rewarding and fulfilling. I've worked in 3 different business areas so there's quite a bit of opportunity to move around if that's what you want. There are locations all over the US. I have always been impressed with the extremely intelligent and talented people I've worked with during the 15 years I've worked there.

    Cons

    It's a very, very big company and there is substantial management overhead. There isn't a real strong technical career path for mid-level engineers or beyond. The benefits keep getting worse.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The compensation was fair, and they offered the scale of support that you'd expect from a large company such as 24-hour technical support.

    Cons

    Tendency toward bureaucracy in terms of tying employees up with never-ending self evaluations and critiques, taking away from time doing the actual work that members were originally hired for. Also, no free lunch here, 'strictly business.

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

    Pros

    Large responsibilities early on in career, tons of opportunity throughout LM, most members of team are willing to help at any given time

    Cons

    Level 3s and 4s are not carrying weight, level 1s and 2s are overloaded without the benefits ($$), hard to advance due to stringent HR requirements

    Advice to Management

    If you can't increase base salary, then offer other benefits to level 1s and 2s like weekly telecommute days. If you want to improve retention something has to change at corporate level down in order to be competitive
