    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    9/80 schedule
    Telework 1-2 days/week for people who lives far from office

    Cons

    Affordability comes first
       - no more bottle water (you need to pay to get bottle water)
       - not replacing people who retired, just distribute work to rest of the employees, not to mention work load from people who got laid off
       - cut benefit, insurance, pension
       - manager always pass down inquiries from upper management on # of hours you spend on such and such task as a hidden trap to justify your existence

    Unequal treatment to staff between different sector
       - some sectors have no year end bonus, some do (regardless of job function or title)
       - some sectors has higher education reimbursement cap
       - unequal starting salary for engineers between sectors even they are in the same geographic location

    Not getting employee feedback properly
       - survey with questions cannot reflect what employees think

    Top heavy
       - too many VPs with ridiculously high compensations while people who does the technical work gets laid off or zero raise

    High turn over for young folks
       - not enough knowledge sharing
       - lack of growing opportunity

    Technical training is not encouraged in some sectors
       - no training budget for some sector. Management just keep saying "we are working on it" It never happen (well, at least for more than half a decade).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't just keep telling people to be engaged while you keep cutting benefit and giving unequal benefits to different sectors. Let's get realistic here, treat your employees better = more engaged.

    Get some real feedback, provide an input box in the survey allowing being truly anonymous.
    or read the feedback in glassdoor, or provide survey questions like glassdoor survey.

    Train your employees, make them updated with current technology and be innovative.

    We need management like Steve Job who's able to turn what we can do into something marketable, instead of just eying on cutting expense/benefit and laying off people.

    It's a bad cycle.
    Cut labor and benefit, raise work load, no training, no innovation, no one feels engaged.
