      Great benefits working to provide great products to our customers. While it's a gov't and military thick environment, the current generation leaders are beginning to be more professionally 'softer', if that makes any sense. This has resulted in a more reasonable work environment and understand of work life balance.


      Still have some remnants of leadership to are anti-telecommute/virtual work. These folks are moving into retirement, mostly, but there are some in my generation (GenX) in leadership who still don't grasp the effectivity of virtual work. These cons a slowly slipping away, but it's happening. It's a military-rich environment as our customers are mostly all military and gov't folks. Which means many of us employees are veterans as well. Us veterans tend to carry archaic leadership styles with us into the civilian sector, which leans towards placing schedule and metrics above people at times. It's not often and I've seen huge improvements in my 2 decades in the company. I'm looking forward to seeing this continue to improve in the next decade.

        Great career opportunities and great upper management. Benefits package is better than most competitors. The management is very hesitant to let anyone go. Layoffs are extremely rare. Even with the stock market crashing, Lockheed Martin stock is doing great and my 401k is still looking good. The management here is worthy of trust and make every effort to be as fair as possible. Company offers ability and flexiblity to work from home which helps a great deal in work/life balance situations. Thanks.


        Cost of living in the Rockville, MD area is quite high. Other than that the company and it's management are great.

      Just finished an application to a university that required me to enter all my work experience twice. First under employer history then AGAIN under work history. I am hoping no one else is that persistent or stubborn and I will be the only applicant! Oh, and you had to attach your resume too.
