    I worked at Lockheed Martin (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are getting payed. You are getting payed.

    Cons

    What they like is the very cheap low salary 25 year old who will work free overtime. Cut throat politics is the norm. Fire them after they get expensive and hire cheap 25 year old. Run by bean counters. Engineers treated bad. Bloated management,

    Advice to Management

    Why bother

    Pros

    Nothing as far as I know

    Cons

    Pay $ 30.00/ hour contract for a senior mechanical engineering position. Are these guys out of their minds?

    Advice to Management

    Pay descent salaries for contract positions. I can guarantee you that many contractors are way better than many permanent wealth fat salary positions

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Still not sure. Oh yeah, 9/80 schedule. One less day every two weeks you have to tolerate the cancer that is Lockheed Martin.

    Cons

    The culture is toxic. Talent is synonymous with seniority and who you know. Promotions to executive level require retirement or mortality and after you work with these people you start to wish for the mortality path. Significant tolerance for passive aggressive and back stabbing behavior. Conflict is avoided and supplemented with gossip. If you are a high pot at your current employer stay away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Retire or quit. You are causing more problems than you're solving and you are creating a terrible employee experience.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    They let you roll over up to 400 hours of vacation since you won't be using it.

    A lot of opportunity for advancement since they lay people off roughly every 18 months.

    Cons

    Honestly, almost everything at lockheed is a con. Their pay is significantly below market, the environment is high stress, the tooling is stuck in the 80s, there is almost no work-life balance, and you're subject to significant background checks.

    Recently, a significant portion of our workforce was laid off - all while we're being told that mandatory overtime will be instated because we have more work than we have people to do it. I can't find a new job quickly enough.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to begin treating their employees like they're more than just a number and not disposable commodity to be burned through and replaced.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work seems to be interesting once get into the daily routine of things. The people are friendly and seem to be helpful.

    Cons

    Prior to starting, it's almost impossible to get information on health insurance, 401(k), vacation time, and etc. When I finally talked to an HR rep on the phone, I was told the health insurance deductible and cost were much lower than they actually are. The benefits are complete crap for such a large company. If I would have known the benefits were so bad, I wouldn't have left my former employer for the salary I was offered.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with prospective employees on the details of the benefits being offered.

    Pros

    The Check cashes every Friday

    Cons

    Called the Lazy L for good reason. Stuck in a time warp. Bunch of old middle aged white guys that only care about their pensions. 50 year old facilities that are falling apart. No investment in the future.

    Advice to Management

    a new generation can get better salaries, better benefits, 401k, and a challenge anywhere else. Why work for incompetent bosses at the lazy L?

    Pros

    Getting Every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Moving up the ladder is SOLEY based on years of service. There is no balance between performance, education/resume/qualifications, and years of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain some top young talent.
