I have been working at Lockheed Martin

Pros

There are a lot of interesting projects. They pay for overtime... anything over 45 hours a week. Flexible schedule. Good leadership training opportunities. There are a lot of opportunities because the company is so large. There are opportunities in every state, and in every field. The benefits are very good. There is a leadership program for young engineers where they invest quite regularly in training and social event.

Cons

Pay is less than other places. Extreme risk aversion leads to a sluggish environment where technology is not adopted too quickly. There is a huge amount of process overhead and not all of it is worth while.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make changes necessary to make environment more agile. Adapt process to project.

    Pros

    Respected company. Secure long term financial viability. Varied cross-platform opportunities. Much room for growth. Competitive salary and benefits package. Pleasant place to work. Very, very competent and highly skilled colleagues. If you work or have worked for Lockheed Martin, then it will always serve as a feather in your cap... opening doors down the line in your professional career.

    Cons

    Very large company -- slow to make rapid market shifts. Bureaucracy. Very long hours -- dilutes salary structure and undermines productivity and workforce synergy. Ultra-competitive environment. Family sometimes "needs" to take a back seat. Too large. Senior management jobs seem to be awarded for "time served" similar to prison. Weak mid tier management structure. Again... tooooo large. Not much room for "out of the box" thinking... very safe approach to design services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward mid-level workforce tier as much as you do senior mgmt.
