    Pros

    Great Technical Challenge Great Team Camaraderie Challenging Work Exciting work helping our warfighters on the front line.

    Cons

    Administrators and Schedulers were more in charge than program management sometimes Performance Reviews were a Farce - Functional Management took over all ratings and gave the official evaluation (numerical rating) prior to written performance evaluation by employees and program. My functional manager had 350 employees and HR told us he knew the jobs each were performing better than the programs. For example, I received a Outstanding Performance Award for 13 successful missile flights and two days later received a performance evaluation that stated I needed help accomplishing my job. When I questioned the disparity between the two HR told they didn't see a conflict. Even when my program VP questioned evaluation Senior Management stated they would not get involved with employee reviews.

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

    Pros

    The smaller programs have a very family-like culture and everybody helps everybody. Management is generally approachable and transparent. Handling of the COVID situation was as on-point as can be expected for a company this large and with so much of its work requiring on-site presence. The benefits are solid; work hours are flexible and the vacation policy is better than most. The company will pay for continuing education with good grades and that is hard to beat.

    Cons

    A large organization like Lockheed has a lot of inertia and is very averse to spending resources on changing how a program is run until performance on that program starts overtly deteriorating. Sometimes there is more staff than work available and you will spend days to weeks doing odd jobs to fill your hours; times like those can be stressful.
