Manufacturing Engineer in Dallas:
"So-So."

System Integration Engineer in Akron:
"Excellent Work Environment."
Pros: Provided the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects. Good work/life balance and excellent benefits programs. Customer contact provided affirmation that the products developed had direct and meaningful impacts on national security.
Cons: I have no complaints about my time as an employee of Lockheed Martin.

System Integration Engineer in Akron:
"Wonderful work experience."
Pros: Opportunity to work a wide variety of programs ranging from flight simulators to missile systems that support the safety and security of our nation. Challenging technological applications to evolving problem sets. Good mentoring and work/life balance. Great customer contact experiences.
Cons: The company sought to reduce overhead and elected to consolidate operations by moving my job (along with many others) from Akron to Orlando. I was offered the opportunity and asked several times to consider relocating with my job but, due to personal reasons, could not accept the transfer so I was laid-off effective 12/18/14.

Senior Mechanical Engineer in Orlando:
"Interesting And Challenging Work."
Pros: 9/80 work schedule. Interesting and technically challenging work. Knowledgeable colleagues.
Cons: Too many policies and procedures. Working with union employees.

Mechanical Engineer in Denver:
"Great Atmosphere For Free Thinking And Original Design Thoughts."
Pros: The people from the worker at my level and both below and above. Many of the industries best people and talent. The flex time is a God send to me because of my spouses medical needs.
Cons: Raises have been below the rise in inflation and are essentially a reduction in my wage and buying power year over year. The system is horrible. One would have to leave and come go to another company to get paid for their experience and time in position. The way the pay structure works, even with good reviews, the pay scale has been advancing to keep up with the rest of the world and it rises faster than the averages wages such that if I now have five more years experience, I am now paid less than somebody hired from the outside with the same experience as myself. This is the worst thing about Lockheed and my only major gripe. My salary was at an hourly rate of 1-1/4 for overtime when I was hired and unilaterally reduced by co. To first 5 hours unpaid and then only straight time after 45 hours worked.
