    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This has been an awesome company to get started, as they really give you plenty of time to get spun up and learn a lot about the products you're using.

    Cons

    That pro has a major con, its kinda slow. Not super slow, but you probably won't hop around a whole lot and it's hard to get new tech ideas in the project team you're on unless you really know who to push.

    "Proposal Analyst"

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    9x80 work schedule provides 20+ Friday’s off a year. Pay is a little better than smaller defense contractors. Large corporation with lots of job opportunities. 401k is good.

    Cons

    Health insurance is the worst I have had. Family of 5 cost me $10,000+ out of pocket last year. Yearly pay raises avg 2%. Can take a long time to increase your salary so you have to change jobs often if you want to increase your salary

    Advice to Management

    Better health care.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good breaks, sometimes around holidays they take us out to eat. Other people you work around are pretty cool in areas.

    Cons

    A lot of walking, have to us your own car to get to certain areas, they pay isn't really worth all the work that you do. Most employees don't do their work and just come in and collect a pay check. No air conditioned buildings during the summer. Have to find a break room somewhere to eat your lunch. Not a loud to have a water bottle on you in a lot of areas even when its 90 degrees outside. Make you walk in horrible... weather to the other buildings.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great company as a whole, stable work environment.

    Cons

    Short sited, non-committed, promotion hungry management so eager for their next role they disregard the role they're currently in. Huge turnover in talent. Promotions are used as leverage for retention leaving those who are likely to stay with a sub-par career trajectory. No COLAs, minimal pay increases, barely cracks the inflation rate.

    Advice to Management

    Shift your focus from those who are leaving to those who are staying. The rapid promotional track for early career employees, and minimal advancement of mid-late career employees appears as age discrimination.
