    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, every other Friday off, paid overtime or time in lieu, and mostly good work force.

    Cons

    Progression seems difficult, very bureaucratic, too graduate focused, and have to be smart with yearly commitments and appraisal.

    Advice to Management

    Take on board the advice of front line staff and plan resources accordingly. Take caution in being milestone driven as this could be detrimental in the long run.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working patterns are in place which are beneficial but purely to suit the local site and contracts in place.
    Decent salary on offer, but over-shadowed by many of the cons.

    Cons

    Top- heavy management team, could do with restructuring and more experience.
    Inconsistency across management decisions particularly regarding HR policies such as authorising comp leave etc.
    No clear direction from management.
    Face-fits and jobs for the boys culture.
    Difficult to balance work/life.
    High expectations for little reward.
    Unprofessional and to an extent unethical working practices.
    Low morale within workers.
    Unfair and very biased employee recognition and rewards scheme.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box. Keep the workers happy and listen. Implement new business models and take a chance on flexi-time!!!!
