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

    Pros

    Could be a fun place to work but requires a major culture shift

    Cons

    The culture and mentality of upper management is always looking for scapegoats for their failed planning. CEO allows the culture to interfere with success. Program almost a decade late yet being ran by the same management team. Where is accountability at the management level?

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate the producers who actually deliver products to the customer and less attention to the Power Point folks trying to justify their position by statusing other peoples work as this has led to miscommunication over and over. Most miscommunication has come from the middle layer of management. Stop sacrificing worker-bees for failed management. Remove the layers of management for better communication.
