    LM do look after their employees in terms of insurance and benefits

      Pros

      If your disciplined you can have a good work life balance Every other Friday off, but you will put in your hours, and some Great products in some parts of the business

      Cons

      Huge politics, Toxic environment, very poor blame culture. It only good if it’s invented at Lockheed Martin Experiance from outside of LM is not valued in fact it’s worthles Boys club with too many egos and personal agendas

      Advice to Management

      The poor culture is predominantly at the exec level, senior staff have been in position far too long, execs should be rotated as they do for directors in many other organisations. The definition of insanity is to expect a different outcome from the same people who have been doing it the same way for a decade or more Lead by example and respect your staff

      I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Decent salary and benefits. Most people I work with are professional, knowledgeable and supportive.

      Cons

      Too much programme management and bad people management. Company seems to be on a downward trend where valuable personnel are leaving and not enough is being done to halt that. More are being asked to pick-up the pieces without fair recognition or appreciation. Central to this is a resource issue.

      Advice to Management

      Start valuing staff and be honest. Support career development for all. Let engineers do their jobs. Stop postponing problems and deal with them now. If our motto is to respect others, performance with excellence and do what's right, then let's do it!

      I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

      Pros

      It’s a job Will look good on your CV

      Cons

      Every other Friday off doesn’t feel like a benefit at all, as your so tired from squeezing 10 days into 9 that by the time the Friday off comes around it hardly seems enjoyable. Don’t be fooled there is zero opportunity for any form of career progression even though your clearly and noticeably over qualified and have more intelligence than most you will be put down and never offered anything to keep your commitment alive....

      Advice to Management

      Pay staff what they deserve Treat permanent staff like they actually mean something Update the Ampthill site it’s an embarrassment and is not industry worthy Stop please using level to determine staff worthiness, it’s cruel and demoralising, just because someone might only be a level 1 or 2 doesn’t make them any less of a person than a level 3/4-5/6 because they are usually more intelligent and actually spend their...

      Pros

      - Great place to gain experience - Keeps fairly up to date with technology (both software and hardware) - Amazing people to work with, hard working but also have time for a bit of a laugh - Easy to commute to and loads of on site parking - Work/life balance is great with the 9 day fortnight

      Cons

      - You will never ever see budget for training - Promotion only when some leaves or retires - Pays far below average for your skillset - Poor communication from management - Your views aren't taken into consideration on how to improve the department - No scope for flexible working

      I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time

      Pros

      + Genuine, knowledgeable, friendly, passionate workforce. + Flexible working hours and patterns. + Good benefits. + Opportunities to experience work at other LM offices. + Good mentorship opportunities. + Quality of compliance training has improved over the years.

      Cons

      - Total lack of local autonomy; every decision must flow up and down the leadership chain, leading to painfully slow decision-making. - Training hard to come by unless it is critical for your job. Even then, you have to fight for it. - Inflexible customers; difficult or impossible to move projects or have time to do side-projects if you are fee-earning. - Empty promises from leaders, especially visiting MDs. They...
