    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Techs are great. Good camaradery, teamwork and training. -Company is pretty efficient and achieving goals, excellence in service. -Work is stimulating and interesting,

    Cons

    -Engineers are stressed, unhappy and generally disatisfied with their careers. and growth opportunities. -Tensions between engineers. Badmouthing. -Tensions between engineering and management. -Lots of fingerpointing and playing the blame game. Rather than fix problems, divisions are more interested in blaming others for shortcomings. -No windows, Gloomy offices.

    Advice to Management

    Hard to fix a rotten company culture. They should hire more engineers to aleviate stress and contribute to better teamwork. Badmouthing, bullying and intimidation should not be tolerated.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Note: Take all reviews with a grain of salt. Each team is very different within the company. Very relaxed environment, easy to bank time and take time of as needed. Management is super friendly.

    Cons

    The tech stack hasn't been updated in 10+ years. We are using an outdated version of Java, and quite literally nothing else. While the pay is alright, it is not a place to build a skill set.

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

    Pros

    Large scale high-profile projects (within country of residence) Good benefits. Competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Working for Lockheed Martin International, I figured I could apply for jobs in countries all over the world where Lockheed has a footprint. Turns out that unless you are a U.S. citizen these job openings are not made available to you. The internal job opportunity search engine automatically defaults to only display jobs available in your country of residence/employment. Any international jobs require you to be a U....S. citizen to apply. Your work e-mail is also labelled "EXPAT" in the Global Address Book, if you are not an American citizen.

    Advice to Management

    You are an international conglomerate. Open up internal job opportunities to all employees anywhere that you operate. Don't discriminate against international employees under the guise of security concerns.
