    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Lots of diversified work across the company. A lot of opportunities within leadership programs for extra training and career development.

    Cons

    Some business areas are disconnected from the central company. Communication may lack to some employees that have restrictions on their email access due to where they work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue leadership development programs, continue career planning resources.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Excellent Performance is rewarded with monetary awards and pay increases. The culture is centered around ethics, accountability, and building partnerships.

    Cons

    The senior leadership can be reactionary and respond in fear to risks. This type of response is counter productive and provided little in the way of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    If you are having an emotional response to a situation, check in with the group and put yourself in the other persons shoes. Bring real solutions to the discussion that focus on a successful outcome.

    Pros

    Diversity of projects. Management makes an effort to grow employees into positions. Jobs are relatively stable with good performance.

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Very good salary and benefits. Significant projects of national importance. Extremely accomplished, talented and intelligent colleagues. Respected employer.

    Cons

    Lockheed Martin’s current and long-term business outlook is very poor due to government budget cutbacks. Mostly under the radar, up to 30,000 layoffs have happened in the last several years, and more layoffs are coming. My LM colleagues are looking over their shoulders for the ax; morale is absolutely terrible in Sunnyvale, CA, and likely at most other company facilities. Just last week, LM targeted several new facilities...

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach, and really start valuing employees.
