I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Grad school tuition reimbursement
Decent Salary/Benefits
Interesting work w/ DoD Agencies
Work / Personal Life balance
Good management
Flexibly to find new opportunities in the company

Cons

Like any big company, you have the politics. They base engineers on "levels" which hardly reflect the true ability and skills. Just because someone has worked in industry for 15 years, does not mean they are a better engineer than someone with 2 years experience. A level 1 could very well be doing the exact job as a level 3 or 4 engineer, but be paid considerably less because of the years of experience and the level they get put at because of this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Financially reward your young engineers! If you have a level 1 or 2 that is performing at a level 3 or higher, then promote them to that level immediately. Don't play off this " not enough years of experience" to justify not paying them exactly what they are worth.

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

    Pros

    Excellent work, dedicated and bright colleagues. Good benefits. The opportunity to do something that will help the soldiers of the american military in their day-to-day tasks.

    Cons

    Lockheed Martin is a publicly traded company and, as such, will do whatever it deems necessary to maximize the value of its stocks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your best managers in charge of the youngest employees to aid in retention.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of resources and knowledgable people
    Education Assistance
    Competitive Salary/Benefits
    Excellent Work/Life Balance
    Decent Management

    Cons

    Typical big company; very political. The opportunity to move around in the company is there, but unless you don't network or "know someone" those opportunities are almost non-existant, regardless how good of an employee you are. The level in which your job is based on could more than likely be inaccurate, as it is based off of years of professional and relevant experience. That said, most military experience will not carry over, for some reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and help them to advance their career. Whether that be financially or in a new job role altogether.
