I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for 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 for more than a 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.

    Pros

    Many challenging and diversew project assignments over my 25 years at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control in Dallas, TX.
