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

    Pros

    9/80 work weeks are great, remote work and telecommuting is ideal, great big family style workforce, awesome people to work with.

    Cons

    Tough times having the gov't as your #1 client does not help keep staff busy, some management need to learn better communication skills.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people, and keep us busy.

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

    Pros

    Benefits Telecommuting if manager feels comfortable with it Work/Life balance with flex time options

    Cons

    Have less personnel to do the work since many layoffs happen Too many managers and not enough workers Not fair treatment to all

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of who is really doing the work and make sure they get the kudos and incentives. Not just who give good lip service.

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

    Pros

    - great leadership program - great financial support for advanced degrees - lots of in-house trainings for employees (six sigma, lean thinking, etc.)

    Cons

    - a bit slow moving - low incentive to get a lot done - confined to process because "that's how we've always done it"

    Advice to Management

    - create quicker turnaround time for projects to engage the younger workforce. - compensate based on whether things are moving the needle vs. time served @ company.

    Break into smaller teams to move more quickly

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of experiences, lots of work, lots of experiences. Good at winning contracts lower than actual costs then they do not want to spend money to deliver promises and want contract requirements to be met using shareware.

    Cons

    Too little acknowledgement for Too much work

    Advice to Management

    Diversity is Good. You can learn a lot from people you think very little of.

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

    Pros

    Great leadership at the top....Stevens is the best. Time will tell if his replacement will be as good. Fair benefits....good 401 k. Pay has been good but getting tougher.

    Cons

    The defense market pressures to lower overheads and prepare for sequestration are making this a tough environment to work in. Lot of pressure to reduce people, especially high-paid salaries with lower cost employees. Lots of fear and uncertainty at this time within the company. There used to be a time when the motto was "Employer of Choice" and Lockheed valued the older more experienced employees. Not any more...we feel...

    Show More

    Advice to Management

    Please value your experienced employees. Where is the loyalty to these long term employees? Be smarter with the reductions....offer better incentives if you want volunteers for layoff. The standard package is not an incentive. Might as well wait for the forced reductions. Why is it that the directors and VPs get a sweet deal going out....the rest get lower than what most other companies would offer for time in service.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    The support and products that are made go directly to supporting our troops working to defend our country. That is a rewarding feeling to know you are making a difference.

    Cons

    DoD funds are going to be tight and work levels are dropping off. A lot of people leaving the company because of the slow down in work. Leadership changes are a non stop revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify and Consistency

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Innovative, trust, dedication to war-fighter / nation, ability to weather a bearish market and internal training / educational support.

    Cons

    Being a large company full of quality personnel upward mobility during a bearish economy is slower than normal.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid the perspection of greed and lack of awareness ... e.g. the CEO bonuses are a bit extreme during a bearish market. This does not bode well with the perspection of the work force as folks are laid off and jobs become more scarse.
