Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – 23 July 2013
One of the biggest problems with working at Lockheed Martin is that every time your work on a program winds down, you have to hunt for another job within (or outside of) the company. That means that you have to prepare your resume, search open job reqs and interview for a position. If you don't follow that process you will get laid off, and it doesn't matter how good an employee you are or how loyal to the company you are.
In addition, despite the company rhetoric to the contrary, the work / life balance sucks depending on what program you end up on. Some are better than others, but overall if you want to work to live rather than live to work, look somewhere else. Also, they are really pushing the training for anti-harassment and diversity, but the culture among the engineers is slow to change.
The work can be fun and interesting
Limited advancement, frequent layoffs, crummy work / life balance

Lots of interesting projects working with cutting-edge technology. Advancement a little difficult. Salaries within market average. Could have more activities to build corporate culture and have employees get to know each other as they work in disparate sites.
Training, work in high-tech field, great colleagues
Can be long hours, corporate culture could be stronger

Security Supervisor (Current Employee) – Land Bank of the Philippines – 28 April 2014
Good working condition. I'm comfortable working with my co-workers. I learned a lot dealing to many clients at the bank. Helping their query. The hardest part of my job is during night shift because you have to monitor the ATM Machine. I enjoy playing basketball after my duty.
I had the distinct pleasure to work as a QA Rep. from 1999 to 2004. The staff and Management were a joy to work with, very professional and helpful. Lots of work/life balance activities, Christmas Party, Golf, special days (gifts on Mothers/Fathers Day, Canada Day etc.) given an opportunity, I would return in a heart-beat.
