Company is good, job culture not so great..
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  UK10 April 2018
The company has terrific benefits and flexible work times. The management are flexible, although often late to realise in office politics.
General culture varies; if you're favoured, its an easy ride. If however you aren't, be prepared for mundane tasking and constant school ground behaviour. This also impacts your advancement as well as training.
Pros
Excellent benefits, Flexible working, Management are reasonable
Cons
Culture is very bias, Advancement is not based on skill or ability, Little to no help in training

Wonderful Place to Work
Field Representative (Former Employee) –  Field Service Rep23 March 2018
Great place to work, but there weren't many availabilities outside of Afghanistan that I qualified for. I enjoyed the culture of integrity and hard work, the close relationship and level of trust developed between Lockheed and the military, and the political and innovative sharpness of senior leadership.

Intern treated like full member of staff
Computer Support Intern (Former Employee) –  Ampthill, Bedfordshire17 March 2018
Working day - Each day on the support team produced new challenges to be overcome. This created a team learning environment where each team members skills could be utilized to solve each issue as it came in.

Management - Easily accessible to communicate any issues with and always happy to help.

Hardest part of job - The work load of a large working site on a small support team means the hardest part of the job is managing work load. Making sure each job is completed in a timely manner while giving the best possible support.

Enjoyable - The team atmosphere at Lockheed Martin makes the working environment an enjoyable place to be.
Pros
Short working week, Great team members
Cons
Busy environment, Sometimes hard to find time for lunch

Could be better
Graduate Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Ampthill4 February 2018
Graduate Review

10 graduates hired a year so people to socialise with.

You will be lucky if you get 3 choices of rotation like they tell you, some critical business issue is likely to prevent that from happening at least once.

The pay is competitive though.



Company Review

Lots of clever and talented people on site, who are willing to help you and want to see graduates excel.

Seems to be a lot of "business critical issues" appearing out of nowhere, with not much time to solve them.

Also too much politics at play and not enough of "lets just solve these issues"
Pros
Private Health Care, lots of car parking space
Cons
Expensive Canteen, No free tea or coffee, dated buildings

CM Senior. (Former Employee) –  Bedfordshire3 August 2017
Seniority based on how long you served with the company, not ability. Middle Management very go-ahead, lower management there for the ride. Pleasant site, engineering colleagues also pleasant. Not suitable for people of faith, if health issues limit what you can do, don't work there.
Pros
Pleasant environment
Cons
Cliquey. Old Fashioned.
