I'm starting to think that LM will not replace my ex colleague at all. A lot of time has passed and no one is hired in his place. I wonder how long the average replacement takes for your colleagues who leave?

LOL! I saw the Moorestown Q4, and they literally said that.
Like I’m going to management and tell them that I’m looking for a position outside of the company. Watched them convince someone to stay just so they could get a few other employees to pick their brain. Then they got rid of him without warning.
The lesson was learned, and shared, amongst the rest of us very clearly - leadership views us all as easily disposed of once they get what’s in our head.
I was at the Q4 webcasts. Attrition was the first thing they mentioned, and was quickly brushed aside as just part of the “Great Resignation” trend.
Basically, the company line was “talk to us before you even decide to look outside of the company. It’s hard to find a job out there.”
So, I think the unofficial policy is going to be that any replacement of outgoing employees is going to be slow rolled.
Depends. Does the job require a clearance? SCI by chance? Polygraph?
Might take a while if it does.
Or… could be Lockheed being Lockheed and trying to see how far they can push things without a replacement.
Not like it’s the first time leadership would have been penny wise and pound foolish.
