    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diversity inclusion, company provides good opportunities, good benefits, competitive salary, provides international work and experiences, good travel opportunities.

    Cons

    They have lots of processes that can slow down overall productivity. I suppose it's expected, given their CMMI5 credentials. Management can also be a little rigid and lacks open mindedness

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

    Pros

    Wonderful people that made for a great work environment. Pay was good for my experience, benefits were good but not mind-blowing, work environment was surprisingly low stress despite the high stress work we were performing. Worth noting I was in IS&GS, which has since been acquired by Leidos.

    Cons

    Mostly a great experience, but as with all office work it could get quite boring.

    Place more into your workers in regards to the betterment of them and not just how they can get you to the next bonus level. Do this and you will get to the next level with ease because your workers will want you to get there because it was you that did so much for them.
