A company that has lost its way.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Redondo Beach, CA

ProsExcellent pay. Interesting and challenging programs. A valuable resource for national security.

ConsAn overly large conglomerate/holding company where people are treated like furniture. A company that lacks any team spirit whatsoever. Employees are so busy looking over their shoulder that they often walk into walls. Policy, procedures and bureaucracy are venerated while customer satisfaction, quality and innovation suffer as employees spend an inordinate amount of time maneuvering through the internal labyrinth of non-sense checks and balances. Northrop is consumed with fear of making a mistake or losing a dollar. This has killed the entrepreneurial spirit. Management is highly accusatory and would rather excoriate an employee than roll up their sleeves and help with the problem.

Advice to Senior ManagementA company consists of its people. It's value and success is often determined by the quality of its people. Management has lost its humanity trading in the qualities which distinguish us from mere animals in favor of self-serving and self-promoting arrogance. Management needs to find its soul.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
