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

Pros

Grad school tuition reimbursement
Decent Salary/Benefits
Interesting work w/ DoD Agencies
Work / Personal Life balance
Good management
Flexibly to find new opportunities in the company

Cons

Like any big company, you have the politics. They base engineers on "levels" which hardly reflect the true ability and skills. Just because someone has worked in industry for 15 years, does not mean they are a better engineer than someone with 2 years experience. A level 1 could very well be doing the exact job as a level 3 or 4 engineer, but be paid considerably less because of the years of experience and the level they get put at because of this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Financially reward your young engineers! If you have a level 1 or 2 that is performing at a level 3 or higher, then promote them to that level immediately. Don't play off this " not enough years of experience" to justify not paying them exactly what they are worth.

    Good growth to a point and then I needed to move on due to lack of top level growth opportunity in the Company.

    Pros

    Solid stock price; LM should not need to go through another large scale employee buyout in the near future.

    Cons

    One line of thought - profit and Company growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be a bit more employee-centric (your "bread and butter").

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

    Pros

    Large company that can afford to keep a bench of talent. Room to grow, train, and improve. Get paid every week.

    Cons

    Corporate culture resembles that of its biggest client - government. Can be a slow moving behemoth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break into smaller teams to move more quickly
