Current Employee - Manufacturing Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA (US)

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

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Owego, NY (US)

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, benefits and retirement, many locations around the country, development programs for career advancement

    Cons

    Experiences can vary greatly from program to program, training and development opportunities have been limited in the past few years, can be difficult to get recognition if you aren't on the "right" program, advancement can be slow unless you have a senior or executive level employee giving you recommendations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better retain your young engineering talent by giving them opportunities to grow, adjustments need to be made to better fit the culture of the younger generation

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

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!
