Great Starter, Great Team, Meh Salary and Benefits
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Herndon, VA – August 12, 2018
I actually came back to Lockheed Martin after working for other companies over the course of a few years.
They're a great company to work for in the short term. Their health benefits are kind of sad and getting sadder. They used to offer a range of medical plans, but now only offer high-deductible ones. Their salaries may not impress, especially if you've been there long enough. I'd recommend starting out a career with them or working for them if you're looking for relative stability, but in the long term, your salary opportunities may be greater elsewhere.
Overall, I'd say the culture at the individual team level is one of the best I've worked with on average, with expectations staying mostly reasonable or at least willing to honestly discuss the pros and cons of an approach. As is true with most large companies, important decisions can get a little more separated from reality when they come from higher places in management.
great team dialog, 401(k) matching with a great stock
stagnant salaries, unappealing health plans, government customer demands
