Contribute to major defense projects
Software Engineer Staff (Former Employee), Sunnyvale, CANovember 21, 2014
Lockeed Martin is a dying breed of employers where one can pick up with straight out of college, put their head down, and stay their whole career. Work-life balance is reasonable: 40hrs/wk is the norm.

Challenging and Exhausting
Facilities Installation (Former Employee), Rockville, MDNovember 20, 2014
Pros: challenging
Cons: overwhelming
This was such a challenging organization, each day there was somtehing new to learn. The people I worked and came into contact with were great. I worked numerous late nights, weekends, and overnights on many occasions. Co-workers consisted of the space community within Lockheed, security, maintenance, internal, and external organizations.

The most – more... difficult part of this position were the nights when a system would fail and I would have to go back into the office after arriving home and staying a couple of days when the entire system would shut down. Most enjouable part was working with such hard working people. – less

Worst place on earth to work
Electrical Technician (Former Employee), Littleton, CONovember 19, 2014
No room for advancement, too many old people sleeping at their work areas at the top of their pay grade doing nothing. You will work yourself to death trying to make a living. You have to put in 20+ hours of OT a week if you want to get a promotion. If you're under 50 years old you will be entry level for at least 10 years. The constant fear of losing – more... your job is the nature of the beast out here, everyone that has worked here for more than 5 years has been divorced at least once because it changes you. Good luck to all who get through the doors, looks good on a resume but that's about it. – less

Great co-workers to work with that get the job done quickly under duress and a stressful environment
Intelligence Analyst (Current Employee), Reston, VANovember 19, 2014
Pros: great benefits package, great people to work with
Cons: sometimes a stressful environment to work in.
Provide Request For Support products to Military Operations whether in a Stateside or an Overseas locations, using a multitude of INTS in order to provide the best quality service product to the customer.

I have learned a multitude of new programs and systems which enhance my skills as being an Intelligence Analyst.

Hardest part of the job is digging – more... deep down during research to find that golden nugget of information that can provide the customer the best opportunity at a great product. Exhausting every level of information that is available.

Most enjoyable is finding that piece of information after researching thoroughly and not giving up at a one stop shopping site. Using a multitude of research tools. – less

The best part of my job was working on the Space Shutttle program from start to finish.
Sr. Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Houston, TXNovember 15, 2014
Lockheed Martin was a good company to work for. I had good co-workers and received good training to do my job. The most enjoyable part of the job was working on the Space Shuttle program and being part of the team. The hardest part of the job was making the program successful on a limited budget.

This company is very poor for taking care of its employees
All Source Intelligence//Targeting Analyst (Former Employee), Herndon, VANovember 14, 2014
Pros: pays well
Cons: no follow on jobs once contract has ended.
This company is a one contract company. Once the contract is over they release you and tell you that they will keep your resume and apply it to future contracts. I never heard from them when my contract ended. When I went online and saw the jobs available and the contracts won by Lockheed Martin yet they never called me. POOR!!!

PTDS
Field Engineer (Former Employee), Kabul, KABNovember 13, 2014
Pros: few out of pocket expenses
Cons: lack of strong corporate guidance, difficulty with staff redundancies
Field work in this country was austere. Well as bad as you allowed it. Lockheed continuously supported remote sites with logistic support. The work was interesting as there was never a simple set of duties. Rather you would end up working a multitude of jobs from building your own housing, plumbing, electrical, in addition to your daily duties. The – more... daily duties would often also be varied as you are responsible for your own security, safety, and maintenance to all aspects of your support equipment. Since all sites are remote, the team environment was a site to site issue and landed squarely on the shoulders of the site management, team philosophy, and execution of that philosophy. – less

Great Company to work for.
Sr Engineer telecommunicatios Tech (Current Employee), Sumter, SCNovember 13, 2014
Pros: good pay, decent healthcare and retirement benefits.
Cons: job being over seas and missing time with family. not enough jobs back home to go to.
A day of work is usually the same insatlling or terminated copper or fiber cable ether outside or inside. Thesting and tgging to indentify the new cables.

Learning something new is rare in this job cause it's repetitive, but every once in a while there maybe something about the new infrastructure.

Management was a great experiance treated with respect – more... and trust in doing your job. If there was an issues with anything it was resolved no favortism. Mangement had willness to work as a team.

Working with my co-workers was what made work worth while we had good comradery and worked good together helping each other out when needed.Co-workers had definite respect for one other and valued each others skill level out in the field.

Hardest part of the was trying to do everything in best timely manner, because other issues would come along. This sometimes would keep the team for finishing that one project you where already working on and cause some conflict with other customers. But one other thing that was hard was being away from family.

Most enjoyable part of then job getting out in the field and working with my team and the military and have good comradery amongst each other. To hear that the customer is pleased or satisfied with jobs completion and making the company you work for look top noch or look above or better than rest of the compeditors out there. – less

Lifetime doesn't matter
HRAccess Program, Virtual Employee (Current Employee), Omaha, NENovember 11, 2014
Pros: opportunites, benefits
Cons: inability to think outside the brick & motar way of doing business
I have worked for Lockheed Martin in a variety of positions for 18 years. I love this company and the opportunities it has afforded me. I am currently at risk of being laid off because the program I am working is making cutbacks which has been determined to be the Systems Engineering group. I have been part of the SE group since it's inception 3 years – more... after the program began. I have been working to pay down the technical debt the program has incurred since it's inception. Gone are the times in which a lifelong employee who isn't close to retirement age is a valued employee utilized to teach young engineers how to integrate into the work force. – less
