I’ve enjoyed my time working with Lockheed, they have a great group of individuals (where I was working) and the environment is friendly, but I’m now ready for a change of direction.

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
