A good job if you are proactive and can tolerate red tape.

Senior Electro-Optics Engineer (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA (US)

I have been working at Lockheed Martin

ProsGood steady pay check. If you network correctly you can find some very technically interesting cutting edge programs. the benefits are good. you get to work a 9/80 schedule (every other friday off). you get three weeks of vacation, flex time and you can work on your off days to build up to two weeks of additional vacation time. They're also ok with you working from home from time to time. Very accommodating as employers go.

ConsRed tape and excessive process. If you don't network properly you can can easily get pigeon holed in a boring uncreative job. You can spend way too much time doing mind numbing documentation because your following some arcane directive that wasn't originally crafted with your project in mind but which got blindly applied to all programs across the company

Lockheed Martin is a good place to find stability and experience.

Software Engineer II (Current Employee)
Huntsville, AL (US)

I have been working at Lockheed Martin


Pros: The 9/80 work week is great. It takes about two weeks to get used to, and then you wonder how you lived without it. They… Cons: As with any huge company, we are riddled with bureaucracy and process. We are working to achieve CMMI level 4 (currently a level 3), so… Advice to Senior Management: You have to stop turning senior technical people into managers. Just because someone is technically skilled, it doesn't mean they can manage and lead people.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
