    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is acceptable for the services rendered. People are nice and seem family oriented unless they are one of the "workaholic" class that exists herein. Many people are genuine and enjoy helping others. This is a good place to work but expect to move around if you want your pay to remain commensurate with your worth and responsibility.

    Cons

    No good deed goes unpunished here. If you work hard, you get ALOT more work. If you don't work hard you can limp along until retirement by doing the bare minimum. For those of us who want to contribute and advance it can be frustrating securing a raise and moving up, even when a graduate degree is obtained. Pay increases are pretty sad and don't even keep up with inflation which is why most employees I know have moved out of the company and returned after a few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on not demanding more than 50 hrs/week of employees, especially the talented high-performing ones. We will move on to better environments as opportunities present themselves frequently. Raises and advancement after graduate school is completed should be substantial and enough to where employees don't have to wait the 12 months required after graduation only to kick the door open and receive the raise they have earned. Stay positive and diversify the company into commercial markets to weather defense cuts.

    Great for short term plan and fresh from College -- longevity is not rewarded!

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It is really hard to find them...

    Cons

    It's obviously called WORK for a reason! Not that I mind hard work... I don't! I gave my 150-200% all the time! But it always seemed the more you did, the more they gave you... without any compensation or thanks in the process. Most of the employees are being stretched too far-- Ones with good work ethic are undermined and railroaded . Too many favorites... the rest will die trying. And nothing seems to change. Past 3-4 yrs of annual layoffs really undermine employee morale.. which is still at an All-time low!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much middle managment still... even with all the layoffs! Certain depts still maintain the Good 'ole Boy mentality! Take a good look at who really does the work.
