Last week we were joined by Lockheed Martin for an exciting Pizza My Mind. Presenting were Denis Coo (Senior Manager), Greg Wilds (Leadership Development Program Manager), and Sadie Rynestad and Benjamin Herzberg (Software Engineer Associates) from the Manassas, VA Campus. Lockheed Martin has locations all over not only the United States, but the world as well, so if you are looking to travel this company may be a good fit for you.
Lockheed Martin works to make high quality products for many different customers. They make cool tech specializing in aeronautics, missile and fire control, rotary and mission systems, and space. The morals of the company include respect, fairness, and doing the right thing, and are truly important to employees like our presenters. The company offers jobs for all majors and provides educational perks like training and tuition reimbursement for masters degrees to keep their employees on top.
Benefits offered by Lockheed Martin for interns include case by case housing stipends, community outreach, access to fun tools like 3D printers and laser cutters, hackathons, and even sports teams and activities with coworkers.
As reported by the presenters, there are some great perks of living in northern Virginia to work at the Manassas campus. There are many historical sites, hiking trails, and sports to play and watch, as well as many other opportunities to get out and have fun. This is probably already well known to the many CNU students who live in northern Virginia and have experienced what a great area it is.
The things that make Lockheed Martin unique and stick out as being an awesome place to work are the content of the work and the cool travel opportunities. Sadie Rynestad stated that her favorite thing about her job was the balance between work and life.
Thanks to the folks from Lockheed Martin for sharing about your company!
