I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

* You get to work on really cool projects that make an impact to our nation's defense (i.e. military systems and fighter jets), science (i.e. weather satellites), and consumers (i.e. GPS satellites).
* Lots of different opportunities to find your niche.
* Plenty of affinity groups that you can join and executive leadership are very active in them.
* They actively promote mentoring.
* They promote cultural diversity and ethics.

Cons

* Very conservative culture. You won't find beer bashes or decorative office areas like at Google or Apple.
* The promotion process is not very good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be sure to recognize (read: promote) the young engineers that are doing work above their salary grade before they leave. Those are the ones you need to try and retain.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Produces an amazing product for the Dept of Defense. Highly driven by engineering and technology. The company provides ongoing training opportunities for the employees.

    Cons

    Much of the management is ex-military with long tenure with the company, they tend to be rigid with "in the box" mentality. If you are creative and innovative, it's hard to sell your ideas or introduce a new approach to things.

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

    Pros

    Lots of professional people and disciplines. Very nice atmosphere for professionals. Company is an industry leader.

    Cons

    The system of doing business on a daily basis at worker level (below management) is cumbersome. Its difficult to get things done in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp decision making process (streamline), update information systems (IT) and get departmental insight on what can or needs to be improved.
