I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You are hired for your demonstrated ability to get the job done, company gives you significant room for professional autonomy which not giving you too much room to cause serious financial harm, I came into corporate world expecting to be "spoon fed" training on how to perform at the PM level and being a profit and loss entity individual training dollars are tight so you are left with a lot of OJT or self training.

Cons

Too little resources for new hires (managers) to get acquainted with the corporate's tools and procedures

    Pros

    Northrop works to keep people employed, moving them to different programs when current programs wrap up.

    Cons

    Keeping your salary advancing requires that one only stays there for 3-4 years max before moving to a different company. Same as all aerospace companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time planning and tracking detail-level work. Do it carefully, and have it done by someone who really knows the task, not just whoever you can get a team to give up.

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

    Pros

    Educational Opportunities for life long learning are highly encouraged and supported.

    Cons

    Limited career growth, salary increases plateau (essentially amount to a COLA), which barely keep pace with inflationary pressures -driving the perception that you are moving backwards annually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold on to your talent...There are many incentives that can be leveraged but the one that always speaks the loudest in terms of an employees perception of value to the organization are wages. Even in today's economic uncertainty their is no sound logic in investing in your talent pool only to have them ensure your competition succeeds.
