I have been working at Lockheed Martin

Pros

Great bunch of people to work with. I really enjoy coming into work and actually working as a team towards a common goal. Everyone seems very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Also if you work late (5:30) you get free dinner.

Cons

No real downsides to the job so far.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    Lockheed Martin provides opportunity to learn, but you must be EXTREMELY proactive about advancing your career. The 9/80 work schedule (every other Friday off) is great. Lockheed Martin has some very brilliant people working there so you have many resources and everyone is willing to share the knowledge.
    Management seems pretty open to letting you direct your career.

    Cons

    Programs are very very long term. They move slowly since it is such a large corporation. If you are young and looking for excitement and fast paced work activities, this is not the place to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees in regards to whether they are enjoying their current work assignments so that you can accommodate requests if someone is unhappy.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    Pros

    The company does have a pretty good benefits package. In addition they allow you to flex your time pretty easily. I think there's a lot more control over the amount of hours you work than most other places.

    Cons

    Management/HR seems to have a complete inability to recognize employees for exceptional work performance. You must do your time regardless of how well you perform.
    Additionally, LM likes to tout how much training/education they offer but much of it is not really relevant to core engineering skills. If you want be a hardcore design engineer, LM is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to recognize performers in your group and offer try to create opportunities for them to improve or advance. Management philosophy needs to include "growing" thier employees as well as ensuring the tasks at hand are performed well.
