9+ years, straight out of colllege... Great start; Great company

Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 8 years

ProsVery diverse environment and great place to learn. There is a great work-life balance and flexible hours.

ConsNo upward mobility. There is a lot of process and documentation that you must go through to get the smallest things changed, although the processes that needs changing, is to better process improvement.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would like for management to have some type of idea of what tasks and daily processes the "worker bees" complete. We are judged by performance against our peers but if management doesn't have an idea what you do (besides what you tell them) how can they fend for you to get a raise when they are just reading your words.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

27 years at LM - Times have changed

Various Titles (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBack in the Cold War days, we made *lots* of influencing products - Often very innovative, highly integrated, and effective...

ConsAt some point along the way, processes & profits became "more" important than the product - Not bad if your a shareholder but the product cutting edge

Advice to Senior ManagementWe used to put the products first and the processes and profits would fall into place - When you put profits and processes ahead of products, the products become mundane... Mundane products isn't what Lockheed was about....

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Poor management in aerospace (Orion)

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time

ProsReceiving your check on time

ConsBlatant unequal & unethical treatment of employees working in the same department by mangagement.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement a value added process whereby employees can fairly rate managers and hold them accountable to conducting ethical business and management principles. I should mention names, but remain hopeful this company will improve their management style.
