I put things into space

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA (US)

I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 5 years

Pros* You get to work on really cool projects that make an impact to our nation's defense (i.e. military systems and fighter jets), science (i.e. weather satellites), and consumers (i.e. GPS satellites).
* Lots of different opportunities to find your niche.
* Plenty of affinity groups that you can join and executive leadership are very active in them.
* They actively promote mentoring.
* They promote cultural diversity and ethics.

Cons* Very conservative culture. You won't find beer bashes or decorative office areas like at Google or Apple.
* The promotion process is not very good.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe sure to recognize (read: promote) the young engineers that are doing work above their salary grade before they leave. Those are the ones you need to try and retain.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
