Lockheed Martin: A Giant In Industry and In Agility

Quality Assurance Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Lockheed Martin

ProsLockheed Martin offers a great amount of security and professional growth for a wide variety of career paths due to its size and reach - there are Lockheed Martin facilities in nearly every state and many other countries. Awesome benefits compared to other companies, especially when it comes to relocation to another LM unit. Ease of transfer as well - just find a place you want to live and odds are LM is there already.

ConsThe company is extremely large and tends to move slower than a startup, so if someone is seeking a fast-paced environment, they may not be pleased with this company. The company is also very "politically correct", due to lawsuits and fines, so creativity and the x-factor of workplace synergy can sometimes be stifled.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep things simple! Get away from re-hashing the same corporate policies over and over again and start creating true value.

Software Engineer II (Current Employee)
Huntsville, AL (US)

I have been working at Lockheed Martin


Pros: Lockheed is stable in an unstsable economy. Because of it's size, we are able to weather problems in an unsettling time. When a program is… Cons: Lockeed Martin, like many large organizations, has a dual career ladder. The technical side is somewhat short and pointy - not much room for growth… Advice to Senior Management: Senior managers are often highly skilled engineers with no leadership skills.
