    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Get to work with really nice people Okay benefits package, pretty standard for industry Yearly pay rise, performance based

    Cons

    Charge code culture is toxic No training, for grads or more senior members of staff Badly managed and structured teams Struggles to embrace change, or listen to new ideas Seems to prefer to hire people with skills instead of training staff (Even though staff are willing to do the training) Grad scheme is a waste of what little money is spent on it Seems to have a 'it's not what you know but who' culture when it comes to career progression Flexi-time isn't really flexi-time, you have to do 75 hours in two weeks and the hours are capped so you can't do too little or too many a week. Mixture of line manager competence, can cause confusion when information is shared through them.
