Pros

Get to work on some of the most amazing assemblies, including satellites and fighter jets.
Good work-life balance (depending on your work group). Flex-time.
Great leadership development programs (including generous tuition reimbursement) for early career employees.

Cons

Too much bureaucracy throughout company and industry.
Downturn in defense industry, with concerns of sequestration.

Advice to Management

Speed up HR process for internal hires. Act quicker to send employees that are not hacking it (or a good fit) to different organizations or eliminate their job. Too many bad apples throughout the company can bring down the morale of organizations.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Allowed me to grow and utilized my skills independently in a leadership position. There was room for growth and advancement.. Offered great benefit packages.

    Cons

    People are not held accountable for not performing their assigned duties. Enforcement should be on tardiness and not showing up for work.

    Advice to Management

    To hold employees accountable for their actions.

  2. Great company to work for, but at the mercy of Congress's ability to pass a budget...

    Pros

    Great projects, great people, good company culture

    Cons

    Military budget is at the mercy of Congress. If they cut the budget, the military budget goes down, which means program budget goes down, which means workforce reductions are constantly looming around the corner in today's economic instability.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to recognize your employees with raises/promotions. Employee retention has already been identified as a problem. Don't do too little too late to retain your stars!
