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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. As long as you are at location between 9am and 4pm, you can adjust when you show up and leave around that. Also you get every other Friday off, but you work 44 hours the 1st week (9 9 9 9 8) and 36 hours the 2nd week (9 9 9 9).

    Benefits are decent. Full health/dental/vision, 10 hours of vacation added per month. 50% matching for 401k up to 8%. Get plenty of company discounts in the area. They'll fully pay for your Masters as long as it's in a related field to what your position is, the program is accredited and you've been at the company for 1 year.

    For at least the team I am on, plenty of work to do, good managers, plenty of people to learn from, encouraged to branch out to other projects, or teams for "stretch" assignments.

    Relatively easy to move to different teams, departments and locations in the company. Just need to do a interview.

    Formal mentor system and plenty of leadership programs and seminars to help you grow/learn.

    Encouraged training hours and paid-for certifications.

    Cons

    Location security can both make you feel safer and paranoid. Cyber security policies as well.

    Everyone takes their 'level' too seriously. Meaning, a new employee is shunned, ignored, given little thought to when talking to or debating a Senior developer/manager/etc. Little transparency with management to employees. 'special rights and privileges' given to higher up managers, etc.

    They're behind the curve in both technology/skills used and workplace culture. They literally call their initiative to improve workplace culture: 'culture optimization'. Feels disingenuous, robotic and profit focused. Makes me think of when a company is trying to market to kids, you can tell they're trying hard to be 'youthful' when they're all too old. Same feeling with the manager is trying to figure out what their employees want.

    Additionally, they use a lot of older technology. I can only speak on the ASP.NET web development side. No teams use MVC, only WebForms. With C# application development, only WinForms is used. But some teams are trying to get into WPF.

    Confusing time-keeping system and budgeting between teams is a mess.

    Lastly, all of the cubicles are solid blue and ugly. Doesn't help me feel motivated :/

    Advice to Management

    Hire/promote leaders with a more modern or future-minded mindset. Take notes on other top tech companies and how they do their workplace culture.

    Pros

    Great benefits, smart coworkers, career growth opportunities are endless unless your performance reviews are consistently poor. Very large company so makes relocating easier. Name recognition.

    Some long hours, hierarchical/old culture, can be hard environment for recent college graduate. The climate can be very political especially with the recent election.

    It's not just an extroverted run company so pay more attention to introverts, promote young success
