Active Insurance Representative(3years) (Former Employee) –  Lakeland, FLNovember 19, 2018
Working in active insurance department dealt with customer service and enrolling employees from all over the world in their yearly benefit plans.
The training was very detailed and precise. You had to be knowledgeable of all of the various benefits and what would best suit the employee's needs for themselves and their families.
Walk the employee through the process, step by step to prevent errors that couldn't be corrected until open enrollment the next year.
Fellow employees were supportive of one another and assisted in all task to ensure a successful open enrollment.
The hardest part of the job was during open enrollment. The most enjoyable part of the job was when you helped an employee or employees and they sent a letter commending you on a job well done.
Pros
Advancement and free lunches during open enrollment.
Cons
Lockheed closing departments and relocating them.

Materials Acquisition Strategist (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CANovember 19, 2018
Hard to scale upwards since the company is so large and prestigious. Like each company, it has it's ups and downs. The management is quite friendly and understanding, but still quite rigid and inflexible.

If you're not the right color or political affiliation, look elsewhere
Supplier Quality Engineer, Sr (Former Employee) –  Marietta, GANovember 18, 2018
Culture: ex-military older white males are the majority which in and of itself is not bad... what is bad is the lack of career growth due to many of those people not retiring and LM's rigid standards of who gets promoted vs. not. Also, many people are very outspoken/belligerent regarding politics which is tolerated if not encouraged.

Some work/life balance is there given you find the right job and manager.

In general it's a very cyclical industry and layoffs are the norm. You're only truly safe if you're in the C-Suite. Otherwise, always keep your resume up-to-date.
Pros
fitness reimbursement, some tuition assistance, solid processes and procedures in place
Cons
rigid intolerant culture, lack of career growth/development

Great Pay, but lacking good managers. Still running under the good ole boy system. Performance is not a determinant for promotion rather who you know.

The worst place I have ever worked in my life!!!
CNC Machinist / Programmer (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLNovember 16, 2018
Managment is horrible. Absolutely no organization. No skilled workers. This place is a complete mess from the top all the way down. Zero job training or support of any kind. Forced to work long hours and weekends. They consistently make bad parts and lie to government on audits. If you have any self respect or quality in your work, DO NOT APPLY HERE!!! If you do not join the union your work will be sabatoged by union members....
Cons
Managment is horrible, long hours, benifits are awful, union shop...

Great learning place for entry level

Great learning place for entry level, but you need to advance the skill set on your own, sometimes you have to look outside. However, it does have a lot IT opportunities in Defense sector.

COMPUTER APPLICATION ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CANovember 14, 2018
Work-life balance was great, management team was excellent. Work was at a much slower pace than tech companies, I would have like to see management engage with employees and compensation structure revised.

big dreams with no direction
multi-functional Manufacturing Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Littleton, CONovember 14, 2018
Overall the people at LM are gold. The problem that they have is to many leaders are selected with no real experience or people skills. which brings the morality down in the area I was in. It is a union environment which has it positives and negatives. They are really top heavy with engineers who also don't have the associated experience that is needed for manufacturing of circuit cards and higher assemblies. If you can go in and be patient and have the willingness to learn and be critiqued then you can excel here. If you don't have that ability you can struggle. Lockheed does a lot of good things for our great nation, they just need better leaders to help push the programs along.
Pros
benifits, the people
Cons
leadership

Much like being in the military, but you're not.
Structural Aircraft Mechanic II (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYNovember 13, 2018
The management at the location I worked at was incompetent, worked people like they were in the military, and didn't care to lay us all off when they failed to get another contract.

Great people of integrity and team spirit
Electrical Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Stratford, CTNovember 13, 2018
My time here was divided into three groups. For a period of time I was in the factory, giving engineering support working 7 days a week, the weekend days were only 5 hours. The people were great in team spirit in the truest sense of the word. There were some upper managers who were micro managing rather than respecting our time needed to be in hustling to get the work done rather than taking time to hold their hands in what was going on and explaining how engineering process works that causes hold ups. That was the only negative I had in the job. Even when working 7 days a week I felt I was supported by my lead and manager. There was respect, integrity and joy in working with the guys there.
Pros
Great place to learn and work in a team atmosphere
Cons
They don't have all their designs/drawings in CATIA 3D
