Should I pass up an opportunity to work at Lockheed Martin?

It would be in quality engineering but I have a degree in Aerospace Engineering and would rather take an aerospace engineering job. Unfortunately they are not hiring for that at the moment. I am a quality engineer at a smaller company (a fraction of the size of Lockheed) that builds aircraft assemblies that will be moving facilities in two years, requiring me to drive 40 mins to/from work. They are also paying for my graduate degree. I do hate my quality job now (which I will probably hate at Lockheed as well) but should I pass up working there despite that fact? Would it be easier to transfer to an aerospace engineering job once inside Lockheed or should I wait it out at my current company until I can get an aerospace job there outright? In the long run, I definitely DO NOT want to stay with my current company. If I go to Lockheed now though, I MIGHT not get tuition reimbursement.

Tuition isn't so expensive that reimbursement should decide your future... More

Stay with your current company until you qualify. QE at the bottom end is drudge work but if you go for QA qualifications such as AS9000 or ISO9000 Lead Assessor or a Six Sigma qualification things get more interesting doing internal and external vendor assessments.
