Current Employee - Program Manager

I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Ethics - great focus on ethics, there may be a few bad apples but overall the company places a focus on ethics.
Great place to work with lots of opportunities to move to many different areas of the company
Leadership Programs are extremely strong and graduating from a Lockheed Martin leadership program is a major accomplishment and honor.
Exciting programs
Lockheed Martin employees take pride in work and never forget who they are working for

Cons

the company as a whole is very site centric and senior leaders like to see someone face to face all the time. Sharing work across sites could be improved without moving employees

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to develop your skills, make long lasting connections, work on incredible program and technologies

    Cons

    Business structure for hiring and laying off is antiquated and incredibly arbitrary, many dead weight engineers in senior posts that you have to work around, endless compliance training and HR methods, no support for HR initiatives that are beneficial, good old boy network still in existence but dying out slowly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your mid level managers why some HR initiatives are beneficial and make them take it seriously, learn to fire the right people not just new engineers to meet a quota, learn that firings need to happen when you have a culture of dead weight

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

    Pros

    Salary itself is good, although factoring in the 401K company matching (up to 4%) + company retirement contributions (3%), and divide that by the average number of hours per work week (usually 45 or less), then consider in the job security, I would say the overall value is quite high. Part time telecommuting is a great perk that allows alot of flexibility and life balance.

    Cons

    As a company, I'd agree with the consensus that growth/promotions are slow (if you can wait around ten years, things should be quite different), value of health benefits are decreasing over time, excessive number of management positions with seemingly vague and overlapping repsonsibilities, wide disparity in terms of workloads/accountabilty/rewards between departments (or even between people in the same cubical) and too many talented newcomers are would-be movers and shakers that get frustrated and leave because of the status quo (unfortunately, leaving the B team in the leadership pipeline to run the company).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would benefit morale and productivity if the company to become more meritocratic.
