    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation time (10 hrs a month), and lots of opportunities to move around

    Cons

    Lots of rules, and regulations since they are a government contractor and some rules are a little outdated (leftover from the 60s). You work 9 hours days (9/80 schedule) and some areas mandate a 45 min lunch. So you are at the office for a long time per day.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job security, industry stability, decent starting pay, excellent pay at higher levels. Well respected company that looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    Small raises, few opportunities for advancement at lower levels. Very traditional, not a lot of room for innovation on the non-technical side. Can feel insignificant in supporting roles

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your younger talent and offer straightforward objectives that provide advancement opportunities earlier.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Location was close to home

    Cons

    Culture has changed for the worse since Lockheed Martin purchased company

    Vacation/time off is less than previously offered by UTC - not competitive among today's large corporations

    Annual incentive bonuses are a thing of the past

    Turnover of management and seasoned employees increasing

    Very low morale

    Small raises

    Outdated policies

    Silo Organization

    Advice to Management

    Sikorsky was an enjoyable place to work and employees loved the culture. I would recommend LM stop trying to impose so much change on employees in a short time. A 9/80 flex schedule will not make up for a cheap vacation policy. Employees are loyal to The Sikorsky grand. This is an old company. LM has given the impression to many that the Sikorsky brand will be phased out. You will have more employees running out the door if things sent turned around. Maybe this is what LM wants...

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generally very good work-life balance for finance employees (trade-off is low pay, of course)
    Pretty good benefits
    In hindsight, very low-stress environment
    401(k) match is/was pretty generous
    Not asked to do a whole lot, except during proposals or other special projects

    Cons

    Not asked to do a whole lot, except during proposals or other special projects
    To all those young people: most of your co-workers will be noticeably..... more experienced in the workplace, so don't expect an exciting work environment with lunches, happy hours, social activities, etc.
    Some of your co-workers will be the type considered low-to-mid performers at other companies, just putting in the time to get a paycheck
    Not a whole lot of career opportunities, I consider myself very fortunate to get the chances I had

    Pros

    Extremely happy with the work I do and the people I work with at Lockheed. We have excellent and affordable health coverage. Love my 9/80 schedule.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape like any other big corporation.. Yearly evaluation system should be improve to better recognize the employees. I've seen alarming salary inequalities among colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on with employee's engagement in the culture optimization to create a more open and free to discuss environment for all employees
