I have been working at Northrop Grumman as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Northrop spends a lot of time and money on their internship program. They facilitate camaraderie among interns by providing numerous speaker/lunch/travel opportunities . If you are ambitious and hardworking, you can land a meaningful project worth writing about on your resume. Overall, I had a great experience at Northrop. Every other Friday is off and the hourly wage is very competitive!

Cons

The company is slow and stogy. If you do not align ideologically with the defense industry, you may find yourself in an uncomfortable position. Your internship experience is highly contingent upon your managers enthusiasm for the program. First weeks can be slow... but it takes initiative to make your experience worthwhile!

    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.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    health benefits were very good and the company has on site health clinics every 6 months or so. Cholesterol and blood pressure screening for free.

    Cons

    Not too green thinking or eco friendly, insisted on using fluorscent bulbs and when asked if we could turn them off overhead they would not allow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be proactive in bringing back employees after contract ends. Be more up front about contract end dates and not secretive. Use more telecommuting, people traveled great distance to come to work and were tired after a horrendous commute in DC area. Make use of NG buildings close to the employees home instead of having them travel across town and pass an NG building on their block.
