    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits package and the fact that the company are huge with massive turn over, which is good for job security.

    Cons

    Below average pay, staff that do less work get more praise, Don’t really keep you in loops of chances of processes. Don’t care about staff very much.

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

    Pros

    Cafeteria closes up, leaves free coffee at end of the day. It is a great learning experience for dealing with less-than-ideal circumstances with inexperienced coworkers.

    Cons

    Lockheed Martin Canada is the worst company I have worked at. The people with the authority over projects make decisions without any good practices or engineering analysis. The pay is not competitive to say the least and being popular with coworkers is valued over technical excellence. Requirements do not exist and the agile methodology has been distorted to some abomination of project management that hardly manages the project at all. Be prepared to be the only contributor who hits his deadlines, Becauses milestones or satisfying the customer do not matter here.

    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 workers. Unfair and very biased employee recognition and rewards scheme.
