    Pros

    Big company, lots of opportunity, work-life balance is outstanding, management where I worked was decent and most of them cared.

    Cons

    You're loyal to the company but the company is only loyal to the bottom line.

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Greenville, SC (US)

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    In 2007, it was announced that the division I had transferred down to Greenville, SC, for (ISSP) was being relocated out of state. All 135(?) employees were offered either a very generous relocation or staying through to the end package. Our director watched out for us. She had made provisions for: 1. Relocation, bringing the Chamber of Commerce from the destination city in to meet with us and discuss what housing was available, answer any questions we may have had, plus offered a generous relocation package; 2. Trips to the destination city so we could see what the area was like and determine for ourselves if it would be a good fit (all gratis); 3. An excellent bonus for those who decided to stay through to the end; and 4. Invited the local Unemployment Office to meet with those of us who stayed to answer any questions. If that doesn't say "we care" I don't know what does.

    Cons

    Because they were so encompassing in what they provided for us in the Division's move, except for normal daily job concerns that are bound to come up at times, no matter where you work, I have nothing but admiration for this management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You had a great representative in place who worked for both LM's best interest and LM's displaced workforce. I know I, for one, felt taken care of. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    LM offers very good early career development opportunities through its Leadership Development Program. Work is very interesting and it is easy to take pride in what you do. LM SSC has a 9-80 schedule. This offers very good work-life balance.
    LM SSC also offers very competitive benefits.

    Cons

    Due to ongoing budgetary pressures, LM has responded with cost-cutting measures that includes promotion freezes. This has left lot of mid-career professionals in the lurch and looking elsewhere. Part of this process has also meant degradation of their benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid-career professionals are key to filling a widening skills gap due to near-term retirement of many engineers. Solid plans, that included opportunities and compensation are required to retain mid-career professionals.
