Secure jobs with reasonable salaries

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Melbourne

I have been working at Lockheed Martin

ProsGood company to work for and the job tasks are interesting with the support of talented individuals.
Strategic direction is solid with the backing of the US parent company.

ConsQuality processes can be lacking in some areas and need to followed by many employees.
Due to rapid growth a new work site is seriously in order.
Middle and uppermangement tend to make decisions behind closed doors and decisions are usually reactive.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to listen to your engineers. They want to help if you support them. You career incentives need are good looking at because they dont exist, leaving a fairly unmotivated employees.

Great way to start my career - company really believes in its engineers and supports them.

Staff Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Rockville, MD (US)

I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 8 years

ProsTons of leadership training, ability to transfer within the company, solid and clear path to promotion, especially at junior levels. Met some great managers and engineers. Strongly motivate leaders to mentor others and it is a team atmosphere, not competitive within. Definitely recommend, especially to young career folks or those who like the structure and stability of a large company. Plus the stock has been killing it lately in the market.

ConsFederal budgets are declining and therefore LM budgets too - they have been tightening belt and doing layoffs. Not a fast pace of change. Depends on what work you do and what you're interested in, but I never really liked the whole "blowing stuff up" part of the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementIS&GS policy on telecommuters paying for their own travel took this high-pot outside the company.
