    Wink PP/ES Investigation? Read on -

    Previously, there was a posting here responding to someones inquiry of working for Lockheed Martin Plant Protection.

    To sum up the original posting in a nut shell; it basically stated that unless you're unemployment benefits are just about to expire and you have no other options, then maybe should consider it. Otherwise, stay as far away as possible because...

    -You will be a Security Guard
    -You'll become another casualty of the vindictive management
    -Horrible scheduling
    -0% Work/Home Life Balance
    -You will spend entire shifts directing traffic and checking IDs while you're posted in a tiny guard shack that has no climate control (heat or a/c)
    -You will receive minimal training
    -The training you do receive is not worth the paper you have to sign stating that you received it
    -Morale is lower in this organization than anywhere you'll ever experience

    The benefits are great and the pay is ok. But, there are alot of people that have left / are leaving for less money and benefits for the simple reason that the working conditions and management of this organization are unbearable.

    You forgot to mention the good training you do in fact receive.

    Exactly what not to.

    If you do the opposite of what management does there in another career field, you will actually do fairly well.

    Smile by the way

    management is on the prowl. they could be preparing for upcoming burn weeks but they'd rather investigate.

    Default Reliable info

    I recently escaped from this organization as well and pretty much everything written by jadedone is true. OT has slowed quite a bit but other than that his(?) description is accurate

    Thumbs down Reply via email? No thanks.

    There's been a rash of folks getting canned in PP/ES and I don't want to be the next.

    You can call me paranoid but you can't call me a sucker.

    Feel free to ask on the forum.

    Default Lockheed Martin Emergency Services

    Jadedone,

    I was quite amazed after reading your post regarding the situation with the emergency services group at Lockheed.

    Are the problems centered around one manager or the entire management team? I have been offered a position and am now considering other options after reading your post. I am assuming the management team you mentioned has another management layer above them? Are they aware of the issues or are they also part of the problem?

    I have heard nothing but great things about the company from other employees I know and am very interested in working for the Lockheed in some capacity.

    Regarding the removal of employees, have they implemented a house cleaning and if so, how are they able to offer positions considering the 800 layoffs they announced a couple of weeks ago?

    Your post was definitely an eye opener! Thanks for the information!

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks
