Electronic Associate Senior (Former Employee), Ocala, FLDecember 27, 2014
Pros: benefits, time off, good experience
Cons: advancement from mannufacturing floor is difficult unless there are conncections, little pay
A typical day at Lockheed Martin starts with setting up for the jobs you need to do that day. You learn a lot about team work and work ethic. You are working for the fighting solider on the field. Management is helpful, but thin at times. The co-workers keep to themselves most of the time because it is a manufacturing plant. The hardest part of the job there would be learning all that goes into building assemblies. The most enjoyable part of the job would be knowing you built a quality product that will not fail.

A great place to work with great benifits and compensation
Supervisor Space Shuttle Launch Operations (Former Employee), Cape Canaveral, FLDecember 26, 2014
Lockheed Martin is a big company but the leadership team made it seem like a small family business, taking the time to go on the floor and getting to know the hands on work force.
Management and co-workers alike treated everyone like family.
The hardest part of the job was the ever changing schedule.
The most rewarding part of the job was watching the Space Shuttle launch knowing we all made it happen.

Aircraft and Propulsion Mechanic (Former Employee), Greenville, SCDecember 23, 2014
Pros: no one over your shoulder all day
Cons: facility needed more production contracts
Mid level managers were great to work with, which most were prior military. I believe most mechanics had prior military service.

Mechanical Field Engineer (Former Employee), AfghistanDecember 22, 2014
Worked overseas contract in Afghanistan for LM. Didn't really feel we were a part of the company, but had to do all the requirements of stateside employees. Tried to get a follow on job when departing contract and felt if you weren't in the buddy system you weren't getting in.

Computer Operation Support Analyst (Current Employee), Baltimore, MarylandDecember 19, 2014
Pros: healthcare, working from home, education
Cons: no close places to eat with out ordering.
I learned this is a place that offers you education to get to the next step in your career. The company keep you updated with the new technology. The co-workers you can relate to and work as a team. Management they offer their help to get you to the next level of your career and have a open door policy. The work load is steady. It's not a hard job. Socializing with other people within the company.

High Stress/Low Appreciation
Sr. Network Engineer (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALDecember 18, 2014
Cons: management staff
Highly stressful environment with constant demands and no recognition of accomplishments.

Employees are in constant fear of losing their jobs due to IT-Chief.

Would not recommend this working environment as Lockheed Martin does not represent or back their employees, nor do they listen to their employees during management/staff meetings.

IT Coordinator-Project Manager-Billing (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXDecember 16, 2014
Pros: on site cafeteria.
Cons: insurance, no opportunity for advancement, no raises
A typical day would include running through multiple reports and databases to enter billing for our contractor and then run through it all a few more times to check for accuracy. Most of what I know now about computers, came from working with this contractor and working directly with the techs. They even helped me build my home computer. Management was typically very easy to get along with, but they still made me want to do the best I could. Most of my co workers were easy to get along with. We all basically had the same sense of humor and laughed often in order to keep the stress levels low. The hardest part of my job was training someone to be my backup, as it took a few years for me to learn my position (and I'm still learning it) because things change often with how management wants things done. And to train someone who knows little about computers or how our databases work, it was a challenge. The most enjoyable part was working with my little group of co-workers. We had fun and joked around, but we also worked really well together. We were mostly on the same page with how things needed to be done from a workflow perspective.

Senior Mechanic (Former Employee), Ft. BraggDecember 15, 2014
Mangement is a term thats just thrown around here. Benefits are completely un affordable with a wife and one child even at 20 dollars an hour. Hard to believe, but 1700 a month is legalized extortion.

Medical Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Orlando, FLDecember 13, 2014
I loved Lockheed Martin. This was a wonderful place to work. It was very family friendly and the people there were very down to earth and willing to help any anyway possible. If I could I would retire from there. Me and a lot of others feel the same way. Some people have been there for over 30 years and they still don't want to retire. They have great compensation and great benefits.

System Administrator (Former Employee), Detroit, MIDecember 12, 2014
Pros: lots to do and great people to work with
Cons: as contractors we were at many times treated as such.
My typical day always starts with getting my group together and discussing pending tickets or other projects. I then reviw all the E-mails and tickets that needs my attention. I work with my co-workers to resolve issues and help them learn to resolve. The most enjoyable part of my job is the interaction with people.
