    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I liked the large company structure as well as the pay and benefits.

    Cons

    The problem with large is that there is no personal feeling in a department. You are just a cog in the wheel and your work is never really appreciated.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Large company, always has employment opportunities. They'll hire anybody with a pulse (not necessarily a pro). Initial salary competitive with other defense companies.

    Cons

    Poor work environment. Engineering merit structure promotes mediocrity. Young engineers show up with loads of enthusiasm and are beaten down into submission within a year or two. Not a place for the motivated, you'll be frustrated in no time at all. If your a slug, then you'll be happy here banking of their DoD "welfare" system. The benefit package gets less and cost more every year. The facility is outdated... by today's standards, test equipment and tools are not the most modern for a company that touts itself as being a "center of excellence".

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

    Pros

    Lots of learning opportunities in may but not all roles. Incredibly high ethical culture and you get to work with some of the smartest people in the world.

    Cons

    Significant lack of racial diversity in some of the higher level roles. Typical large company issues that you will face anywhere. Things can move slowly sometimes because of the bureaucracy and "old school" leftover leaders who haven't been forced to retire yet. There always seem to be a reorganization so you need to be comfortable with names changing on the front of offices faster than you can keep track.

    Advice to Management

    Manage volatility in the constant reorgs. Force leaders to develop "action-plans" as a result of employee surveys or people will stop participating. Move toxic leaders out of leadership (or the company) way way way faster than is currently occurring.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Depends on what client you work for. Lot's of knowlegable people who really take pride in the mission. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Large company = bureaucracy. The work culture was very uptight. HR system was spread out on different systems that made keeping track of them a mind-numbing task. Upper management never knew your name and taks order managment were always in a screaming match over a technicality. Vacation time was limited and managers advised never to go in the negative.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on your employees, increase vacation time to reduce stress and consolidate the HR system.
