    Large company, with the goal of 100% mission success, can seem to move slowly. But that’s what success requires sometimes.

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

    Pros

    - Company has changed their outlook over the past few years and younger talent with less experience has been allowed to grow at a faster pace. This is retaining young talent more than the company had in the past. - Company instituted cash performance bonuses for Senior, Staff and Senior Staff level positions. - Overall workplace mindset seems happier and more open than it was 5 or 6 years ago. - Lots of growth potential and ability to switch teams into other roles and functions without leaving the site or company. - Future business outlook looks solid and the company is meeting many major milestones per year

    Cons

    - Healthcare has definitely gone downhill the past 2 years. I am lucky to be healthy enough to risk the cheaper, higher deductible plans, but someone with significant health considerations should keep that in mind. - It can be extremely difficult to get hired into the company unless you have a connection. This leads to a lot of former military hires without any hands-on experience with the systems they'll be working on getting selected for mid-level or higher roles and failing to keep up. - Many employees continue to "fail up" and get promoted past their level of incompetence
