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

    Pros

    The 9/80 schedule is the best you can get at a company. Lockheed Martin provides excellent flexibility, while also accomplishing great engineering designs and tasks.

    Cons

    I would say promotions are tough, but in a competitive environment it will be worthwhile in the long run.

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

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, generous PTO, good 401k, excellent work/life balance, continuing education support

    Cons

    Pay leans toward the lower side in some HCOL areas, little to no urban campuses, slow (but steady) upward advancement

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on retaining top talent and adapting policies and pay rates to do so

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    EXCELLENT pay! plenty of opportunities to learn advanced technology, and growth with other like-minded individuals who share the same passion.

    Cons

    PARKING. PARKING PARKING. If you work second shift, YOU ARE SCREWED. Get to work at least 45 minute early. It will take you 10-30 minutes to find a parking spot. And you have a LONG walk to the punch in terminal.

    Advice to Management

    None. Everyone is terrific!

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

    Pros

    It's essentially impossible to under-perform, which means you'll never get fired as long as you don't violate legal or extreme ethical restrictions. There are lots of places to transfer within the corporation if you're needing a new perspective. They love having loads of management, so if you want to be a manager, you will undoubtedly get your chance if you focus on that path.

    Cons

    The relaxed and comfortable environment breeds less competitive performance. The very restricted environment smothers innovation in bureaucracy and red tape. HR seems content with minimal effort to retain talent, and even less effort to leave an impression on departing employees that would entice them to ever return.

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

    Pros

    Very interesting programs to work on. Good culture of respect and collaboration among the engineering staff. Lots of really smart, highly capable coworkers. Stable work - many of the contracts we have have been with us for years. Good work-life balance. Manassas is well situated for a variety of living options - you can live away from DC and have a reasonably affordable house on a decent sized lot, or you can...

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are mediocre. Salaries for existing employees gradually fall more and more below market as the maximum "merit" raises possible don't keep pace with industry salary growth, or even with updates to the corporate pay scales. Facility is old, and in many ways run-down. Restrooms haven't been updated in decades, and haven't been deep cleaned or maintained properly for years - several regularly have standing...

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a better facilities maintenance team. Things last longer if you take care of them. The facility looks like one that belongs to a company that's stuck in the past and going out of business. Yes, building 400 where the executives sit has been renovated. Venture out and check out the rest of the facility. You may be surprised at what you see. Review all employee salaries for competitiveness regularly, not...

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flex hours Easy work Never run out of things to do

    Cons

    Can get boring quick Once you stop learning their way of doing things you stop learning and become stagnant Not a great place to work for more that 3 years. Use 20+ year old out dated technologies simply for the fact of being lazy/not having contract money. Non rewarding work. Poorly managed and contract work can just get pulled out from under you, it happens quite often. Working on something for months then you...
