    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I can only speak for a small part (~10,000 employees) of NG. In my experience, I worked with really great personalities on my day-to-day tasks. This goes really far, Northrop has some terrific people. I also feel that the workplace flexibility was terrific, specifically in the areas of flexing your time and having a good vacation accrual rate.

    Cons

    It is a big company afraid of innovative investments. Much of the work currently being done is a re-spin of existing programs. You are subject to the highly uncertain congressional funding environment for the big ticket programs, which during periods of pain can mean protracted layoffs and lack of career mobility. This is more an industry problem, rather than NG specific.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to fund innovative research by smart engineers in the trenches. The corporate environment is currently too risk averse and purse-string tight. The alternative is to acquire all innovations, in which case bright engineers will be jumping ship looking for such start-ups.
