    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High level of integrity throughout the company, open communications, and sincere interest in doing the right thing.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I need to come up with twenty words of cons. When in reality after 41+ years in IT, I have no cons for Lockheed Martin. They are not perfect, but highly acceptable.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have is, possibly, try very hard simplify processes. The processes are accurate and extremely detailed. Some could be less detailed.

    Pros

    Good place to work with. But you have to work with very senior guys. Even from Germany the architects come to visit India are way older than us.

    Cons

    Management is bureaucratic. Old people around with old thinking. Very less java work, more on Dot NET Microsoft. No out of the box thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Employ young energetic confident intelligent managers. Don't sell units rather think of cost cutting

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1.) 9/80 schedule allows for an every other Friday off.
    2.) Lots of paid time off (4 weeks off to start, 40 hours PTO, 40 hours floating time off)
    3.) Benefits are good. 401k contributions are excellent, Health insurance is a high deductible, but cheap if you don't use it (per period contribution is almost free).
    4.) Consistent pay raises annually (1-4% based on performance)
    5.) Good work/life balance
    6.) Certain divisions are much more successful so seek employment with a line of business that has a long term contract
    7.) Lockheed isn't going anywhere and the steady business the government provides will keep it around for a long time to come

    Cons

    1.) HR is pretty stingy and you really have to prove your worth in order to negotiate a higher salary when being promoted.
    2.) Lots of internal hiring / lateral position moves
    3.) Program management teams can make questionable commitments to the customer that don't support the schedules of other groups (Engineering, Operations, Supply Chain, etc) this can put you under pressure to put forth work that hasn't been properly vetted.
    4.) If you're manager isn't a true leader you will stagnate, unless you take it upon yourself to develop and grow your career

    Advice to Management

    There are too many Chiefs and not enough Indians within the org. structure

    Pros

    LM do look after their employees in terms of insurance and benefits

    Cons

    As it's such a large company, departments such as HR tend to be less effective at dealing with incidents
