    Subpar pay but relaxed work environment

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    LM is a large company, my experience has been: relaxed environment, management is easy going, decent work life balance until project heats up which is normal. Good tuition reimbursement. Easy place to hang your hat for a while if you aren't concerned about promotion time or pay.

    Cons

    401k matching is 4% High Deductible Health Insurance Non-Competitive Pay High Turnover Management is okay with seeing people leave Beancounters and Non Technical People in Technical Management Positions Big Push to keep engineers within LM however their pay is sub par Deadwood Promoting based on time and not knowledge

    Great Company and Amazing Experience!

    Oct 7, 2021 - Mechanical Engineer Associate

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Job security, cool things to work on, assigned mentors, education assistance, internal training, internal development programs, standard HDHP but with low costs and HSA with yearly company contribution incentives, excellent 401k match with immediate vesting, excellent PTO policy, 4x10 schedule with flex, good pay, good raises with decent bonus, lots of sites across many states, WFH flexibility

    Cons

    Starting pay lower than other industries. Raises aren't much more than annual US inflation. Being a large company, change is slow. Promotion path not clearly laid out and primarily time-based rather than performance-based. Assigned technology not great and lacks customization for individual roles. New software slow to become available because of security vetting. Not much coordination between business units (Aero, Space, RMS, MFC); feel like four separate companies. Transfer opportunities between company sites and business units challenging to secure.

    Pros

    Wonderful work culture, competitive raises, excellent insurance, always opportunities for promotion, and you get to contribute to building some really cool projects.

    Cons

    It’s such a large company that sometimes things are more inefficient than they should be. Way too large of a workload for the salary.
