Environmental Safety and Health Engineer Sr (Former Employee) says"You never know what the status of your employment will be. New employees get no assistance with learning the culture and your job. It takes an excessive effort to dig through records to understand what has been done and get no guidance on changes that are desired. Cons: Insurance offered is not adequate for location ie everything is out of network"
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) says"RUN AWAY FROM LOCKHEED! No job security, management could care less about you unless you are making them big $. I’d rather starve then work for them ever again!🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 Cons: Everything under the sun"
Aircraft Structural Senior (Former Employee) says"Worst aircraft related job I have had and would not recommend this position to anyone. Pay is low and skill is not required to work this job so if that is what your looking for apply."
F-35 Maintenance Instructor (Former Employee) says"Managers are put into position by the GOOD -OLD-Boys Club, No Respect for Experience or Education, Managers who are put in Position of Managing Individuals with Special Skills, have no Clue of the Skill or the Job function they are overseeing, Pitiful to be put in a Position of Authority, and the People who work under you are Laughing at you because you are clueless, and when your given useful information on how the Job should be done, management Scarfs at it and does there own thing, there way, and when it turns out Wrong, as in the Case of the F-35 Program, they ( Management ) takes absolutely No Responsibility for there Mindless Management Skills, but that's what you get when you put Barney Fifes in Charge. Cons: Mindless Management Personnel"
Material Coordinator (Current Employee) says"Donʻt work for Lockheed Martin. Management treats all employees as replaceable unless you are in the click with management. Prepare to deal with unethical and unprofessional management who care more about the product and service instead of their employees. Their policies are honored, environment is unprofessional and without support. Cons: too many to list"
Engineer (Former Employee) says"The company does NOT value diversity, especially is you have a mental disability. They will lie about disabled employees in order to terminate them. Yes, discrimination is illegal, but Lockheed Martin does it anyways."
Quality Control Technician Sr Spec (Current Employee) says"it's like high school all over again. no matter if you're hourly or salary, it's f'n high school. i hate it here! if you enjoy being lied to and people talking bad about you behind your back then this is the place!"
Electronic Associate (Former Employee) says"STAY AWAY. There is a lot of bullying that goes on here, and management does nothing about it. There have been several people that got harassed and nothing was done about it, at all. Pay is very low, even with the new raise. The cliques here are insane, and once again, that's where the bullying comes in. The shifts are all 10 hours, 4 days a week. Overtime is offered pretty much every weekend unless you're night shift. If you are considering nights...don't do it. You're treated differently/poorly. There's not even a nurse on site, only for dayshift. Some supervisors micromanage to the point I've heard people cussing at them. You do earn PTO every month, but you don't even get enough to cover ONE shift. You can't request time off, only call out or save up your PTO and use it. There are SOME positives to working here. You get paid vacation in December. Some people/supervisors are nice. Overtime and guaranteed 40 hours every week was nice as well."
Web Designer (Former Employee) says"I felt comfortable on my first day as a sub contractor on a contract to hire opportunity. A few days in the manager came in yelling at one of his employees in front of everyone and this did not only happen once it happened on multiple occasions. He verbally abused his employees including me. One time when he yelled again at one of his employees I stood up and stuck up for him. I told management what happened and no one listened. So the manager let me go because I exploited him. Cons: All"
Welding Engineer (Former Employee) says"Totally incompetent management. If you were from Arkansas you will fit it, if you are from somewhere else you are looked down at. Tried to adjust the welding department, but got no support."
Electronics Technician CREW (Former Employee) says"When you are a contractor with this company you are simply a "nobody" the company does not care about its employees and you are just a number. You can be released the same day as every job is dependent on a contract therefore if the company does not get a contract you dont have a job. Plain and simple"
Electronics Associate (Current Employee) says"What to say. I used to love my job. Then things began to change and bring to light the fact that unless you’re a salaried employee and upper tier, you’re a peon and disposable which is what I have been told I am. HR seeks ways to make your time there miserable. Management does not care about your life. Got a wife who is very ill and in the hospital? You will be told to choose: job or family. Take my advice stay away. Cons: Too many to list. Stay away."
Principal Security Engineer (Former Employee) says"This was the remnant of the "Industrial Defender" acquisition by Lockheed Martin. The leadership were absolutely the worst in the 30 years I have been in this industry. They were so bad that even Lockheed gave them the broom--sold the whole group to Leidos and THEY couldn't do anything with them so they sold them to Capgemini. A terrible operation, terrible products, awful services, bad morale and a body of "leadership" that is so self-serving, they can't see the forest for the trees."
Structures Senior (Former Employee) says"This company only cares for salary employees. The hourly employees are not valued regardless of your qualifications it could take 30 years to move up in the company. A janitor is valued more than an A&P Mechanic. Also you get 25 cent raises and can take more than 10 years to top out in any postion. Cons: If your hourly you expendable and lucky to be there."
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) says"Supervisor higly favored women in the workplace - awful place to work as a male. Very little oversight as a satellite LM location which led to a wild west atmosphere with little accountability to hold lockheed martins true agenda."

Senior Infrastructure Engineer (Current Employee) says"I have worked for Lockheed for 8 years, unless you are in a certain clique and friendly with the right people you will be treated ufairly, you will miss out on promotions and opportunities. Good as a graduate as they put all their effort and money into given graduates oppirtunities anyone above that level will be treated terribly. Cons: One of the worst places to work above graduate and below management"
Technician I (Former Employee) says"Lack of respect for employees."
PC Coordinator (Current Employee) says"You’re literally just a cog in a machine that cares nothing for you. If you have a Bachelors you’re pretty much set but if you work anywhere in the plant other than upstairs you’re expendable and lower than dirt to them."
F35 B/C Model Aircraft Flight Test Mechanic says"I worked at Lockheed Martin for more than 3 years Cons: The company putting the wrong personal in leadership roles. Case in point having an electrical engineer in charge of maintenance planning instead of having someone with the proper degree like aviation management and years of performing the the job."
