    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, every other Friday off, paid overtime or time in lieu, and mostly good work force.

    Cons

    Progression seems difficult, very bureaucratic, too graduate focused, and have to be smart with yearly commitments and appraisal.

    Advice to Management

    Take on board the advice of front line staff and plan resources accordingly. Take caution in being milestone driven as this could be detrimental in the long run.

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible working patterns are in place which are beneficial but purely to suit the local site and contracts in place. Decent salary on offer, but over-shadowed by many of the cons.

    Cons

    Top- heavy management team, could do with restructuring and more experience. Inconsistency across management decisions particularly regarding HR policies such as authorising comp leave etc. No clear direction from management. Face-fits and jobs for the boys culture. Difficult to balance work/life. High expectations for little reward. Unprofessional and to an extent unethical working practices. Low morale within...

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box. Keep the workers happy and listen. Implement new business models and take a chance on flexi-time!!!!

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work culture. Good focus on ethics and ethical behaviour throughout the company. Company offers 9/75 working pattern which allows every second Friday off.

    Cons

    Career development opportunities are not as frequent as in the US. The Business unit removed flexibility to work from home. The business unit leadership team is inexperienced who focus entirely in the weeds.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest it would benefit from clearer and more ambitious vision and strategy.

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

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Lockheed Martin for 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

    I have been working at Lockheed Martin

    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.
