Career Prospects at Lockheed Martin
- Average rating for Career Prospects, based on 20 reviews6.1 / 10
Please tell us about promotion possibilities and fill us in on what it takes to move up the ranks.
Promotion is not really possible outside of moving from Associate to a full Software Engineer I believe, but there is possibilities for better roles once you have experience.
Career progression naturally occurs as time and experience grow. Good prospects for senior roles.
Especially in a technical role, you have to prove that you are capable of designing and building critical code for software solutions, and can lead a team of software engineers to build better end-products. Where I work at the moment, you start as a Software Engineer Associate (essentially a graduate), then after a year you become a Software Engineer, followed by Software Engineer Senior once your manager believes you've gained the appropriate levels of knowledge to maintain the responsibilities of the role. Once you have reached this stage, you can either move further into the Managerial space, or continue on and attempt to become a Lockheed Martin fellow
Ranks are about proving yourself, you must work hard to get further
