    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work is fun and fairly interesting. The managers at the office I am at are friendly and care about the employees. The product that I am working on is interesting and definitely enjoyable.

    Cons

    The pay could be better and there is little documentation of the code base. They also take a lot of ideas from smaller companies such as "flex time" and manage to turn them into very corporate policies that don't work all that well. The amount of paperwork required can hinder an employees productivity, but also is a necessary evil in the defense industry.

    Advice to Management

    Have some form of training for the new hires that involves the job they are doing. Also, pay a competitive wage. It helps to be more flexible regarding vacation policies and flex time as well.
