    I have been working at Northrop Grumman


    The benefits package is very attractive, competitive with federal government. The company has a pretty good name. There are a lot of interesting things going on within the larger company: building submaries, UAVS, radars, etc. The top-level management seems pretty good, and a few (very few) of them are actually personable.


    Lots of front-line management (direct bosses) that are retired from military service and typically of some technical background. This is not an ideal group to lead a civilian workforce. The attitude is a lot different from what you expect as a young professional with a freshly minted engineering bachelor's. It is sometimes counterproductive. The challenge is that there is such an ingrained culture among these people. They do not even realize they are treating their bright young (some Ivy League) talent as if they just got out of boot camp or officer's candidate school. Taking care of people is a struggle. The military is used to people rotating out every 2 or 3 years and literally it is someone else's job to help people along in their career.
    As a technical professional, you will not have a long career ladder. Up to a certain point, you price yourself out of work. The company can only advance people into the many, many echelons of management. You will go from working on challenging engineering and technical problems to approving travel vouchers and time cards. However, there is very little viable alternative. There are a precious few high level technical positions, most of them occupied by 20 year careerists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider your philosphy about who should be front-line managers. The retired military folks are capable of task level leadership and some business development. The technical people do not want to do it.

    Stop reorganizing the top levels of the organization. Start rethinking the organization of the profit centers. Get serious about opening up the company across profit-center silos.
