Current Employee - Manufacturing Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA (US)

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

Pros

Get to work on some of the most amazing assemblies, including satellites and fighter jets.
Good work-life balance (depending on your work group). Flex-time.
Great leadership development programs (including generous tuition reimbursement) for early career employees.

Cons

Too much bureaucracy throughout company and industry.
Downturn in defense industry, with concerns of sequestration.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Speed up HR process for internal hires. Act quicker to send employees that are not hacking it (or a good fit) to different organizations or eliminate their job. Too many bad apples throughout the company can bring down the morale of organizations.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I was fortunate to work with competent engineers

    Cons

    promotions are nearly impossible to get

    too much uncompensated overtime

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop worrying about your bottom line and pay more attention to your employees. Promote people to do an exceptional job and they will stick around. Too much turnover which hurts everyone.
