Featured Review

Current Employee - Lead Systems Engineer

I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

Pros

Current military projects with some exciting problems to solve. Four day working week, home working becoming the norm. Generous compensation and benefits.

Cons

Process heavy which sometimes hinders delivery.

Advice to Management

Review processes for efficiency, there is quite a lot of waste in processes that cause delays and add no value.

Pros

Flat structure No bureaucracy Plenty of training opportunities and continual development Bleeding edge ways of working Great colleagues Competitive salary for the most part

Cons

Still trying to figure out a number of kinks associated with rapid growth
