    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Loyal, hard working colleagues with some of the best minds in the industry. Professional collegiate atmosphere depending on area of the business and programme you are working on. Work / life balance is good with flex-time policies and a culture which acknowledges family commitments and the need to balance.

    Cons

    Company is struggling to remain competitive in a changing market. Transformation programmes are as slow to be implemented as one would expect from a huge Corporation; unfortunately this is translating into short term actions such as cost cutting in training, research & development and benefits. Salaries lag behind competitors and continue to fall in competitiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the impact that cutting investment in people and in R&D is going to have on your talent base and product offerings before it is too late.

    Pros

    Working for a Lockheed Marting will ensure you have no shortage of challenging work but the vast majority of people are capable, the expanding UK footprint of the company provides job opportunities which are rewarded with , reasonable to good benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours are not uncommon and with challenge comes pressure and demands. geographical mobility in terms of working at other locations is also required at times. Pay is reasonable to good but there is no bonus scheme

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

    Pros

    Huge mostly stable US company

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. No opportunity to introduce much-needed changes. Many retirement-eligible "blockers" who are just waiting around until their retirement date hits. Huge under-funded pension liability which caused the company to slash medical benefits to the point they are no longer competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding individuals who are holding you back just because they have been with the Company for 30+ years. It's time to clean house and bring in the much-needed talent your organization desperately needs to thrive in the future.
