    I have been working at Lockheed Martin (Less than a year)

    Pros

    salary, technology, job security, career opportunities and opportunities to travel and transfer within the company, aspects of the job are very dependent on division and program- each is very different.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy and politics can be a little bit much at times. Also, the plant that I worked at had gross cubicles and dirty office facilities but the manufacturing plant was very clean.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that they should try to promote young people sooner who deserve it and not let the politics cloud the fact of excellent job performance.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (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.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working 9 day fortnight, pay reasonable, benefits good, support of career advancement.

    Cons

    Tick box culture. Lessons never learnt. Continual circle of change without actual improvement. Continual focus groups on issues, but rarely issues addressed. Very poor management, pat on back for the higher level personnel and up and coming high end employees. Experience and voice matters little unless it fits. Many wrong inexperienced people in senior roles or supporting roles giving poor focus and leadership. Each project self driven no overall control. Front end of process, slow and poor with major delays, which are expected to be picked up at the other end of process to meet target and tick box regardless or time scale and notice. Hard work and frustrating to do the day job what you thought you were there for. Many higher level tasks passed down as far as possible to add to work load.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look get hands on experience at all levels, go and see the issues, get involved with the issues, have a week working with the issues, and LISTEN!
