    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Get to work with some truely gifted professionals doing great work supporting the war-fighter. Good pay, benefits and opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    Company had guaranteed tasker orders for duration of multi-year contract, but senior management only seemed concerned with fee/profit. Contracts staff generally viewed as the root cause of problems they have no control over and constantly being begrudged. Work massive amount of uncompensated overtime waiting on others (like herding cats), rewriting documents for others and asking USG for schedule relief/forgiveness...

    Advice to Management

    Advocate for the team to perform with integrity...stop pushing your negotiators so far to the edge if violating TINA so you can 'make your numbers.' Stop harping on the contracts negotiators. If you only knew how many times they've kept your team out of trouble with their integrity and good relationships with the USG, you'd be lauding them daily.

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

    Pros

    This has been an awesome company to get started, as they really give you plenty of time to get spun up and learn a lot about the products you're using.

    Cons

    That pro has a major con, its kinda slow. Not super slow, but you probably won't hop around a whole lot and it's hard to get new tech ideas in the project team you're on unless you really know who to push.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great company as a whole, stable work environment.

    Cons

    Short sited, non-committed, promotion hungry management so eager for their next role they disregard the role they're currently in. Huge turnover in talent. Promotions are used as leverage for retention leaving those who are likely to stay with a sub-par career trajectory. No COLAs, minimal pay increases, barely cracks the inflation rate.

    Advice to Management

    Shift your focus from those who are leaving to those who are staying. The rapid promotional track for early career employees, and minimal advancement of mid-late career employees appears as age discrimination.
