Approves of CEO

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 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 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 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!
