- starstarstarstarstar4.0GradAustralia surveyed 16 graduates working at Lockheed Martin. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 16 responses.
- The tasks I am working on are interesting and matter
- Great chance to learn from some of the best in the industry. Working at the forefront of technology.
- Everyone is friendly and they ensure all employees are keep up to date with what is happening within the company.
- Friendly environment, everyone's is happy to assist and there is a strong culture of training and mentoring graduates.
- flexibility in work/life balance e.g., start and end times are flexible within reason gym memberships promoting health initiatives such as the GCC step counting challenge
- Some processes are tedious
- My team work in a separate classified building, as I am waiting for my clearance to be processed sometimes it can be lonely and hard to self-motivate as I am always working on tasks alone.
- do to the need to know basis of most project content, information and knowledge sharing can be low
- Working on old and out dated technologies that won't help you down the track.
- The need to know basis on which knowledge is shared between projects
What insiders say about…
My role as a software engineer (note, not a "developer") necessitates getting involved in the entire software development process. It involves working with Business Analysts to discover requirements, discuss potential solutions, and to bound solutions to what is possible. I need to continue learning about new tools and software libraries to develop robust and useful solutions. I also design and build code to best software practices (where possible), and am constantly provided with valuable feedback to help me to improve over time. I am responsible for the implementation of automated deployment for most of our solutions, which has been a great learning experience.
In office barely culture doesn't exists, social events few and far between. No social events outside hours. Structure and hierarchy is standard top down like any large scale business. Communication between levels is often poor due to complex structure. Teamwork can be good, although is not used enough, should be used more to solve problems as it promotes bonding between team members.
There were 4 parts: - Submit resume - Online assessment - Phone interview - In-person interview The online assessment had some logical reasoning tests - I don't remember that much of it. The phone interview was around 15 minutes, and just asked some basic questions about what I would like to gain out of working with Lockheed, and what my reasons for joining were. The in-person interview was around an hour, and involved some coding tests, and general coding questions to assess how much I knew about software practices - not particular languages.
Why would you like to work with Lockheed? What experience have you got in Software Engineering? What was your favourite/least favourite project you've ever done? Have you experienced much conflict in work-type situations before, and if so, how did you resolve those? Specific questions relating to Software Engineering practices e.g. how a variable should be named?
I recommend reading about software design patterns, and to read programmer blogs (if you aren't already). These will definitely help you to understand how to code language-independently. This is a very important skill - knowing one language won't help, you have to know how to code *well*. Picking up languages is a secondary skill.
40 hours per week instead of 38 in return for one rostered day off per month. Company is somewhat flexible on working hours.
Would be a good incentive to boost work ethic and moral
Many clubs and out of hours activities available
Great accessibility and great mentors at a lower level. Highest levels of management are less involved in this process understandably.
Good basic training provided, need to source own training and present it to management to better your skills however
Career progression naturally occurs as time and experience grow. Good prospects for senior roles.
Good; however there is not many woman engineers. defiantly in HR and other areas we are very diverse
Equal opportunity based on skill, not where you came from.
I was part of the GCC challenge - where a team of 7 participants will carry pedometers and track their steps throughout a 100 day period, and compete with other teams from countries all around the world. Lockheed also provides support for its employees through a program provided by HR.
Low-walled cubicles for easier communication but also allows for quiet periods. Location and facilities are well-presented and secure. We have a nice kitchen with free coffee from a pod machine. Dress code is semi-formal. Men wear suit pants and collared shirts, and women are in work clothes.
I don't know that much about it, but I have seen some green initiatives advertised around the office.Join us to bookmark!
