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

    Pros

    - Good pay and benefits. Many useful discounts with partner companies. 401K match up to 4% of salary, with Roth 401K option. Three weeks of vacation per year that rolls over from year to year, not including paid holidays. Salaried employees can be paid for overtime if approved by management, which helps bump up the salary.
    - Being a large company, there are many opportunities to transition to different positions within the company when they come available. Upper management will usually help employees make these transitions as long as the skill sets are a fit, which probably helps with employee retention.

    Cons

    - Depending on the area you are working, there can be lots of office politics.
    - Being a large company, there is a lot of standard procedure which sometimes acts as red tape.
    - Employee performance review system continues to evolve but the latest version was poorly executed and is difficult to use.

    Pros

    *In the right organization, management is supportive of career and educational development
    *It is possible to advance in a rewarding career while maintaining work/life balance; it is expected that employees leave after a 40-hour workweek
    *Many opportunities to take other jobs, learn new skills, get involved in special projects
    *Continuing education tuition assistance, leadership development/rotational programs

    Cons

    *Funding uncertainty on programs can occur in the light of government budget problems
    *Large defense contractor means bureaucracy that can sometimes be frustrating
    *IT security means software and hardware tools available to employees are almost always out of date and limited in options

    Neutral Outlook
