LMCO
Program Manager/Capture Manager (Current Employee), Colorado Springs, CODecember 4, 2014
Pros: interesting work, good place to gain experience
Cons: "hollow" company, hard to advance, very "corporate" in treatment of employees
Great place to develop skills, gain experience. Excellent training programs, but in recent years harder to access due to budget constraints. Advancement is not easy, and tends to depend on what programs/locations you happen to be associated with. Good "brand", and a leader in technology and best practices. Skills will be transferable to other companies/work. – more... Challenging work/life balance at times, with limited recognition beyond satisfaction of having done a good job. – less

Very good company to work for
Quality Assurance Inspector (Former Employee), Melbourne, FLDecember 3, 2014
Pros: paid very well
Cons: no job security, too many lay offs, it was all contract work, not recognized for skills, it became politics, it was all about who you knew not your skills
It was a great company to work for. They paid very well. The unfortunate thing working for company was they did not recognized anyone for their skills. It was too much politics, It was all about who you brown nosed in order to keep your job. The only good thing about working for them was how much they compensated. It was all contract work.

Great Place Depending on Department and Manager
Security Information Assurance (Former Employee), NYNovember 28, 2014
It has been a great experience for me but it all depends on your department and manager. I think they give ample opportunity to get certifications, training and help to advance your personal knowledge but you will get strung along when it comes to promotions for the most part. You may move up 2 level in 10 years...

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

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.
