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

Pros

* You get to work on really cool projects that make an impact to our nation's defense (i.e. military systems and fighter jets), science (i.e. weather satellites), and consumers (i.e. GPS satellites).
* Lots of different opportunities to find your niche.
* Plenty of affinity groups that you can join and executive leadership are very active in them.
* They actively promote mentoring.
* They promote cultural diversity and ethics.

Cons

* Very conservative culture. You won't find beer bashes or decorative office areas like at Google or Apple.
* The promotion process is not very good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be sure to recognize (read: promote) the young engineers that are doing work above their salary grade before they leave. Those are the ones you need to try and retain.

    Great people and challenging work.

    Upper management might have gutted capability/discriminators in search of lowering rates. Now we have issues winning in this economy
