I have been working at Northrop Grumman

Pros

Pay, benefits, flexible work hours. Interesting and challenging work. Decent tools. The pension plan is one of the few I'm aware of within the industry. 401k offers matching up to 3 or 4%. They are now offering a health plan named Lumenos by Blue Cross Blue Shield which my family has really liked. Its the best health care plan I have had in many years. Company is making an effort to standardize across all organizations.

Cons

Company is very segmented making the work environment inconsistent between organizations and programs. People can be parochial resisting looking outside of their immediate work groups. This makes moving between organizations more difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are slipping into a bodyshop mentality. You say how important retention is but the people who execute the business (line management) are not incentivised to pick up people from projects that are ending. For example, I see people let go because of contracts ending yet other organizations hiring from the outside at the same time.

    Pros

    Values employees, flex time and room to grow! In the past 10 years, I have worked in 5 different projects and have been promoted 5 times. Itis a place were you can grow and learn from others. Having a family and balancing work, traffic and the home life it is important to know you have flexibility. The main buildings are open 24 hours so flexing your time is easy. I have come into work at 5am before and left early to take care of personal apts. I have a lap top and can work from home as needed. Excellent company!

    Cons

    Lots of change as we become a unified company, but the end result will be excellent. I was with another company that was purchased by NG and the company is moving towards there is like policies, benefits, computer systems and career paths so it is easier to move around the company. This takes a lot of work and therefore there seems to be changes every year. Most are positive changes - like we received more vacation one year, benefit expenses were lowered as a result of coming together and soon all the grades and titles will be the same. Change is good...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
