Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Owego, NY (US)

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

Pros

Competitive salary, benefits and retirement, many locations around the country, development programs for career advancement

Cons

Experiences can vary greatly from program to program, training and development opportunities have been limited in the past few years, can be difficult to get recognition if you aren't on the "right" program, advancement can be slow unless you have a senior or executive level employee giving you recommendations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better retain your young engineering talent by giving them opportunities to grow, adjustments need to be made to better fit the culture of the younger generation

    Great company to work for, but at the mercy of Congress's ability to pass a budget...

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

    Pros

    Great projects, great people, good company culture

    Cons

    Military budget is at the mercy of Congress. If they cut the budget, the military budget goes down, which means program budget goes down, which means workforce reductions are constantly looming around the corner in today's economic instability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget to recognize your employees with raises/promotions. Employee retention has already been identified as a problem. Don't do too little too late to retain your stars!

    Reinvest in young professionals (7 - 12 years) and business model to retain talented engineers
