    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High level of integrity throughout the company, open communications, and sincere interest in doing the right thing.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I need to come up with twenty words of cons. When in reality after 41+ years in IT, I have no cons for Lockheed Martin. They are not perfect, but highly acceptable.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have is, possibly, try very hard simplify processes. The processes are accurate and extremely detailed. Some could be less detailed.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (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 We are using an outdated version of Java, and quite literally nothing else.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 (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.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Flexible work hours
    Very good training resources on-line
    Very good career progression for well-liked staff

    Cons

    Poor technical oversight
    Poor software engineering practice
    No mentoring or coaching

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to model the values and principles the company claims to adhere to. Need to put the customer first and not allow poor practice and oversight to unnecessarily increase costs.
