    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Lockheed Martin (More than a year)

    Pros

    people are always impressed when you tell them you work for LM. they give decent PTO and 401k matching.

    Cons

    huge wage disparity between different pay ledgers so people working in the same building are being compensating very differently for the same type of work on a different project. unwilling or unable to correct wrongs.

    Advice to Management

    fix the problems between MARS and SWIFT. Find a way to help people when they've been treated unfairly. Get power back into the right hands so first line managers arent essentially useless.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

    Pros

    Great company and benefits, lots of knowledgeable people and ample contracts to keep things moving. Great source of 'breadth' knowledge

    Cons

    Little 'depth' knowledge. Very big projects often lead to time being wasted and allow unmotivated employees to continue working. Promotions do not seem to be based on contributions but rather time with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time on individuals and make sure they are doing what they would rather do (of course within the types of work that are available). Take a more active role and ensure the 'leads' are fluent with all the work under them.

    Variety of work, great work ethics, good leadership, various locations across the world to get an assignment, good technical work

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Senior leadership's vision for the company is one that includes strong leadership and unbiased interactions. Engineering projects are challenging and provide interaction across functions, locations, and customer entities. Opportunities to move between positions abound, and constant change keeps things new and fresh. Work/Life balance is provided through flex schedules and 9/80 work weeks.

    Cons

    Corporate leadership may be focused on culture changes, but implementation details at the lower levels is lacking. Efforts to please the shareholder often leave the employees disenfranchised. Generally, pay is average and skill expectations are, too.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to team members and lower level leaders to fully understand challenges before implementing wide-stretching changes. Recognize that it is not always better to create tools or processes that span locations, business areas, or customer sets. Consider lowering the decision making authority to those who have one on one contact with employees.
