    I worked at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    I work in space systems. The projects and technology are great, There are great opportunities to work in very interesting research. You will work with very skilled engineers and scientist.

    Cons

    slow career development, slow salary growth = 3%. In addition it is very hard to try to work on different divisions. If you want a fast pace environment this is not the place for you. There is a ton of paper work and procedures that slows down you work. Some of it is unnecessary but you still have to do it. Doing business development is very slow and cumbersome with all the regulations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to get more responsibilities and get the work environment of the company more youthful.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Good leadership development program, if you can get in. Performance reviews are structured and timely. Lots of opportunities to move to other positions in the company for career development.

    Cons

    It helps to be well-connected to get ahead, and definitely a must when your contract ends, if you want to stay in the company. At contract end, most employees are on their own to find other work with little or no help from management or HR. Internal hiring process is broken - you rarely hear back from bids on requisitions, which are usually wired for someone else or out of date. So it's easier to find work outside the company. No reimbursements for parking, transportation or professional memberships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and get to know them and what motivates them. Build trust by providing positive feedback, direction or support, as needed. Give them opportunities to make a difference and get involved.
