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

    Pros

    Relaxed environment with opportunities to mix with very senior employees and gain an insight into how the company works. Work life balance is good with many business areas now operating '9/75' which means working an extra hour each day in order to get every second Friday off.

    Cons

    Few opportunities to get promoted internally unless you are willing to relocate. Many employees are ex military so hierarchy is key.

    Advice to Management

    On boarding process is not great, as is moving from a contract role to permanent staff. There is no bonus structure at all for support staff and annual increases are small.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin (More than a year)

    Pros

    No career advancement
    Treated unfairly
    Disrespect

    Cons

    escorting, serving refreshments, accused of doing something that was someone's else's fault made to tidy and clear out rubbish from offices, left out of group meetings, no given tasks

    Advice to Management

    Don't accuse someone of doing something that they did not do? If you dont have any evidence, absolutely disgraceful, however the right person came forward in the end wasn't happy at all not the right way to treat your staff

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay.
    Great flexible working time and every other Friday off.
    Additional programs to enrol on once employed although they are competitive.

    Cons

    Can easily get left behind.
    If you manage to get on one of the development programs then you're looked after and your development is a high priority, if not then it's difficult to make an impression.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on graduate program and personal development.
    More of an open door policy needed and improved culture would make it a much better place to work.

    Pros

    I learn some new technology during this project

    Cons

    I worked as a contractor in Data Warehouse project for one of the biggest public body. The management was extremely bully as following:
    - Constantly criticized me, constantly fiercely rejected all my ideas and suggestions. I was shocked by the fact that such a huge system is designed by a Lockheed Martin's employee who has no relevant experience.
    - Spreading nasty rumors and made dismissive remarks when I spoke
    - Shouting at me and other team members
    - Assign me trivial and menial tasks
    - Withholding important information from me and did not use correct terminology
    - Ignored me as if I am a contemptible one
    - Always expected me to produce work in an unrealistic time-scale
    - Finger pointing at me in all fictitious mistakes

    Another manager bullied all team members, not just me. On one occasion he said to a colleague of mine in front of others: 'You know the difference between nuts and your brain? Your brain is smaller'. On other occasion he hit a head of another team member (a petite guy) with a ball saying 'Don't stay in the middle!'. It was so appalling.

    So I left 3 months (the contract was 6 month initially) following other developers. My health is more important for me than coping with this harassment and humiliation every single day. I tried to inform the management - no response.

    Advice to Management

    Listen carefully to reporting of bullying. Or be prepared for a high turnover.
