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

    Pros

    Good start to a career, great experiences in medium-large scale programs, initial graduate salary is okay. Lots of brilliant engineers to learn from. Flexi-time is very good (when project deadlines are not around)

    Cons

    Lack of actual training (learning on the job is expected). Pay rises are not great at early stages in career. Pay discrepancies between

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the potential of all staff earlier on. Pay rises for junior staff is crucial to keeping the staff around. The pay gap between level 1 and 3 is far too large.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most co-workers were great. Interesting job. Pay is decent. Lots of different locations and programs to choose from.

    Cons

    Unethical hiring practices. Req"s are written for specific people, buried in the system, and held open for the minimum amount of time. People are hired and promoted based on who they know, not actual qualifications. Ethics guidelines in general do not seem to apply to management.

    I worked at Lockheed Martin as a contractor

    Pros

    Nice work environment, friendly employees, flexible work schedule (as long as you work between the hours of 10 and 2 you can flex around that).

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Competitive salary, interesting work, great team, decent social clubs, paid college. My team has a good mix of younger and older folks, so diverse input, with knowledge to back it.

    Cons

    A lot of folks are not happy with the benefits. The college pay back is a little low in my opinion

    Advice to Management

    Increase the amount paid for college. 10k a year is barely enough for 3 classes at a cheap school.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, great people, opportunity to work hands on with hardware.

    Cons

    Training is very minimal, as a new hire out of college I was left to my on devices for months trying to figure out what I was supposed to do.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with Co-Ops and new hires, let them shadow more experienced engineers more closely to learn the procedures.
