Great benefits working to provide great products to our customers. While it's a gov't and military thick environment, the current generation leaders are beginning to be more professionally 'softer', if that makes any sense. This has resulted in a more reasonable work environment and understand of work life balance.
Still have some remnants of leadership to are anti-telecommute/virtual work. These folks are moving into retirement, mostly, but there are some in my generation (GenX) in leadership who still don't grasp the effectivity of virtual work. These cons a slowly slipping away, but it's happening. It's a military-rich environment as our customers are mostly all military and gov't folks. Which means many of us employees are veterans as well. Us veterans tend to carry archaic leadership styles with us into the civilian sector, which leans towards placing schedule and metrics above people at times. It's not often and I've seen huge improvements in my 2 decades in the company. I'm looking forward to seeing this continue to improve in the next decade.

Great career opportunities and great upper management. Benefits package is better than most competitors. The management is very hesitant to let anyone go. Layoffs are extremely rare. Even with the stock market crashing, Lockheed Martin stock is doing great and my 401k is still looking good. The management here is worthy of trust and make every effort to be as fair as possible. Company offers ability and flexiblity to work from home which helps a great deal in work/life balance situations. Thanks.
Cost of living in the Rockville, MD area is quite high. Other than that the company and it's management are great.

Good pay, plenty of opportunities (especially when you network), interesting projects, organized, diverse environments, learning opportunities, tuition reimbursement, 12 weeks paid maternity leave.
Work life balance can be dependent on the team and the availability of staff to evenly distribute the workload.

- Foot in the door at a massive company with history. - Work on some incredible programs with brilliant people.
- Work/life balance was horrible due to how enormous the company is and how much is happening. - Pay & benefits are well below industry standards. - Alot of bureaucracy when it comes to promotions, set in stone rules that hinders the company.

-Numerous employee programs that can really help entry level employees get started and acquainted with work life balance.
-Ended up in a disconnected part of Lockheed so the programs I was interested in were not available or organized that well

The ability to work in a virtual enviromnet allows for flexibility and a good work life balance.
Within the corporate environment there is limited growth potential for highly valuable candidates.

Great Company. Very stable, many advancement opportunites. The people are respectful. You can create your own work schedule and there's a great balance between work and family life. I worked there as an intern and the intern program was building, but headed in the right direction. The access to people and information at the company is great. Doesn't take much to get the answer you need.
The pay is lower than some other companies in it's bracket.. I think there could be a formal entry-level training program for those who are coming straight out college into the work force. Access to certain websites on the internet are limited such as personal e-mail cannot be accessed from the company''s network.2

LM rewards employees that are willing to uphold and personify their corporate ethics and vision. They employ a very dynamic and talented workforce and encourage a good work/ life balance. They provide excellent career paths and mentoring from more experienced colleagues. Management has respect for their employees and truly care about their careers and job satisfaction.
As with any big enterprise, it is sometimes difficult to understand exactly how the company's vision and direction affect you as an individual employee.1

Great benefits. Diverse work and project opportunities allow for you to never stagnate or be bored and to continue building skills and interact with different people and build relations. People have complained about HDDP, but I'm finding that I hit the out of pocket max after 4 months (I pay for the max plan). Good work life balance; I plan my weeks really well and focus really hard and have never had to work overtime.
I started my job the week covid shut down my city, so I've had a hard time getting to know coworkers and have been mostly working remotely. That said, people don't seem to want to talk or share anything about themselves and it's been hard building a work community or getting to know anyone. It's a pretty lonely job overall. Thankfully, I have an amazing manager who really listens and helps me as much as he can. Salary should be more for the area. Lack of diversity among the team.1
