    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lockheed Martin is a great company to work for. They take care of their employees and tier customers. They are fair and pay reasonably well. They encourage hiring and promoting a diverse work force and encourages to all to participate. They work with leading edge technologies and have a great and well deserved reputation among it's customers. When my contract was ending, they offered my another position (although much farther then I wanted to commute) or a very nice severance pay. After leaving LM, they also offered a very good training program to find a new job. I would be glad to work for them again.

    Cons

    They are a big company and it is easy to get lost in cracks. A bit top heavy....lot of VPs and Managers. I would like to see more spent on training to keep employees up on the latest software and hardware. Sometime too much time is spent on compliance training and performance reporting, but I think the process is being looked at and streamlined and this is only a minor issue. The expect you to work 60+ works a week, but they allow work at home when appropriate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let your employees fall between the cracks. Encourage them to look forward and be clear with them about opportunities and cuts. Try to ensure that the Functional Managers really know what the employee is doing on a daily basis. For the most part, follow LM policies and you should do well.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement, travel, and training.

    Cons

    Forced Diversity is killing opportunities and slowing progress...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to your ethics and morals - push back on Corporate initiatives regarding forced Diversity - it's not only wrong on moral level...it's slowly killing the company!
