Pros

The flexibility in getting your required hours in. The excellent tuition reimbursement package as well pension and 401K matching. The company provides multiple growth opportunities for its employees and the ability to rotate around through multiple lines of business and programs. Working for the premier defense company allows for exciting work experiences that one would not normally get through his or her job. Plus, all employees know that their work directly impacts the national security of this country. Your work certainly feeds the soul and makes the hard work all that more rewarding.

Cons

The huge bureaucracy and multiple levels of management can be quite a drag on work production and program efficiency. The range in the quality of managers is rather wide. It sometimes begs the question as to how this person or that came into the position that they hold.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To set a clear vision for the program and don't be risk adverse to new potential engineering solutions.

    Pros

    Great career opportunities and great upper management. Benefits package is better than most competitors. The management is very hesitant to let anyone go. Layoffs are extremely rare. Even with the stock market crashing, Lockheed Martin stock is doing great and my 401k is still looking good. The management here is worthy of trust and make every effort to be as fair as possible. Company offers ability and flexiblity to work from home which helps a great deal in work/life balance situations. Thanks.

    Cons

    Cost of living in the Rockville, MD area is quite high. Other than that the company and it's management are great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job, the company has great leaders that can be trusted. Thanks

    Pros

    The base pay directly after graduation is good. I cannot speak to what it will be like when I have a few years experience, but I hear the pay scale and promotions are curtailed shortly after

    Cons

    Overtime gate (not getting paid for certain overtime) Some managers aren't as flexible with the hours you work. This varies by manager. There is often a lot of needless steps and paperwork to do anything. They could benefit from a streamlining for new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay and instittute bonuses. Non-defense companies are raking in graduates due to better pay. It will only get worse as more and more baby boomers retire.
