Pros

Lockeed Martin is a highly ethical company. Not only that, they are concerned with their impact on the community and the environment. They are great in terms of work-life balance, with flex time, telecommuting and work at home options.

Cons

As with most large companies, raises and promotions aren't entirely merit-based. The system is designed to meet market-averages for salary and position over time (performance based), which doesn't translate into rapid results.

Advice to Management

Remember Lockheed Martin is not just an air-frame company. Much of our business in the future will be in Information Technology. Focus training and development on preparing for these opportunities.

    Pros

    Stress free job, 40 hours a week at the max, goo starting salary, good health insurance, ERP system is pretty easy to learn.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, no merit raises, doesn't groom talent, I feel like they are out to get me.

    Advice to Management

    Why dont you talk to your employees about how they feel about things? You only come to talk to us when you have something at? How does that make us feel?

  2. Lockheed Martin--Great company for the family--Not so great for the employee.

    Pros

    Very family oriented. Believe in a diverse work environment and the ethics has a REAL place in the work place. Management didn't just preach diversity and ethics they LIVED it!!

    Cons

    Some management has just been in place too long. Some of the upper management was so old that they didn't even know how to use Outlook. Made their understanding of what their high tech oriented younger employees did for a living nearly impossible. Many times the younger employees who were more capable then the management and manipulating the systems and working with data were either rated too low and just neutral simply because their leadership had no grasp of what they were doing. LM was supposed to be a Functional line of employment company but many times employees were placed direclty under a program manager or lead supervisor. This creates major issues during review time as an admin might have to compete with engineers for her raises and bonuses. If the admin was correctly placed in the Functional group then the admin competed with other admins during review time. LM senior managment just couldn't grasp that review admins along side engineers was not only wrong it was damaging to employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that you employees are placed in their correct functional group and that they don't report directly to a program manager or lead supervisor. This creates conflict for the employee if the functional manager is telling the employee to follow one company policy but the program manager or lead supervisor is telling the employee to follow program policy.
