    Pros

    good vacation, my first line manager was great

    Cons

    Our VP drove down contracts and had losses yet she got outlandish bonuses! For the largest defense contractor they don't do a good job or retraining or redeploying employees when a contract ends

    Advice to Management

    Get your HR people to do their job when employees are facing layoffs

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

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

    Pros

    Amazing and intriguing programs to work on from Aerospace to Space Systems to Missiles...truly amazing the types of programs you get to work on! It is so well structured, I haven't experienced another company with better stucture, processes, procedures, policies. All well thought out and the employees actually follow it! Flex work options, awesome benefits and employee discounts! I miss getting paid weekly and 9/80 flex weeks! So easy to move around within the company! You can experience whatever you want once you are an internal employee.

    Cons

    It is extremely hard to get back into LM once you leave. I have been trying for 2 years and still haven't been able to get back w/them.
    I will also say that their compensation is a little lower than other companies i have worked for but the benefits are great. You can easily move around in the company but advancing from level to level can be tough.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pension.... though I understand no longer for new hires. Opportunity to work from home. Supporting external customers can be more advantageous than supporting internal LM customers; LM employees could fair better operating under external customer processes. Wide spectrum of products and services offers many opportunities.

    Cons

    Limited/no support from managers. Annual review process can have little value. Managers can discover no roadmap for success. To be fair, LM is a huge company with many sites and cultures; pick wisely.

    Advice to Management

    Front line managers are in a tight spot; often having too many direct reports to manage. I worked for three business units within LM, all so different that any advice would be too selective.
