I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time

Pros

Good benefits; lots of opportunities to work on pretty cool stuff that benefits the US military (and others)! If you're willing to relocate, NG has lots of opportunities across the company, and seems to do a good job of enabling employees to move to a new job/place.

Cons

- As a defense contractor, NG follows the highs and lows of defense work -- right now defense is shrinking, as seen by lots of defense contractors (Lockheed Martin, NG, Raytheon, etc.) having layoffs. - If you want to work on cool commercial stuff, a defense contractor isn't the place. - For software developers, not a lot of decent process in place across the company, nor decent training company-wide for developers.

    Used to be a great company, now is terrible. It is so terrible I am 29 and took a voluntary layoff!

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

    Pros

    I worked in procurement and the people were great (not management though). Also there is a bar down the street to have a couple beers at lunch so you can get through the day. Pay and benefits were ok.

    Cons

    Basically everything. The company still thinks they are in the 80's. If you are a young person you will not be a manager for 30 years. Way too many levels of management and I do not know how most of these managers were hired. If you have drive and ambitious then say goodbye to it. Nothing is efficient, you have to get a signature for anything you do. Management thinks they know all and will not listen to the low level peasants of the company. There is a reason why Boeing and Lockheed are ahead of Northrop. Once most of the good old boys club of Northrop retires then maybe it will improve. If you are lazy and want someone to make terrible decisions for you then this is the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off lower level employees and start laying off management. Whatever your first instinct is then do the opposite!


  2. Very professional environment, lots of military personnel.
