I have been working at Lockheed Martin

Pros

Work life balance, you get to work with a lot of knowleglible individuals, there are a lot of opporunities for growth, multiples opporunities to move around from job to job and city and/or state.

Cons

There is a lot of competition. Due to the nature of the job sometimes you may have to work longer hours than expected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It takes a long time to get into a management position here and LMMFC, however, they seem to place the right leaders in the right places.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Diverse workforce.
    Strong military pride and customer interaction.
    Excellent education reimbursements.
    Global presence.
    Open door policy with any leader at any level.
    Health rewards program is generous, but expensive.

    Cons

    Quantity of years on the job vs quality of years is looked at first and foremost. Preference almost always given to candidates with more years on the job and strong military background.
    HR is very slow to move on internal postings. It takes anywhere from 2-9+ months to hear anything when you post online.
    Poor merit raises despite strong financial performance with successful and above ratings at year-end review. Ruthless bell curve distribution.
    Uneven distribution of workloads across departments and lack of communication across organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the dozens of committees, forums, reviews, councils, etc. and place greater authority in executive, middle, and front-line management. The rewards and recognition system needs to get away from a bell curve if Lockheed Martin hopes to keep it's stronger talent.
