Pros: leadership is amazing
Cons: staying employed (not being laid off between contracts)
Working for Lockheed Martin has been amazing. Although the company size might frighten some who think that they may become diluted in a highly expansive workforce, “LM” is always showing me and my family that “we all in this together”. This has made me a more productive engineer and family man. *** WORK LIFE BALANCE *** Assignments have been rigorous and sometimes almost unachievable. However, going into 9 years (sub-contracted and) direct LM employee, I have yet to miss a deadline. The greatest difference in my experience has been my leadership chain. From vice-president down to my Senior Engineering manager, the focus resonates the SAME message. Many of my contracting partners have joked using our LM clichés’. (Sad thing is,… when we actually deliver the message we advertise, the joke is on them). I am proud of our team and company. Our customers are demanding and I respect their tenacity to expect results. This is another reason LM maintains the level of quality and care on each of projects.
