Current Employee - Systems Engineer in San Diego, CA

I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Location, opportunities, benefits, education assistance, pay, the value of having a well-known name next to yours.

Cons

Difficulty transitioning within the company from one position to another, a mixture of high achievers & slackers (80/20 rule applies here)...nothing out of the ordinary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come together...right now...over me.

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

    Pros

    The most exciting, interesting technology I've ever worked on, with some of the sharpest people

    Cons

    Large bureaucracy, and the ultimate boss driving the bureacracy is congress, the most fickle and near-sighted customer you can imagine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * use and contribute to open source projects to get the latest and greatest capabilities
    * use knowledgebases, not wikis and forums
    * use company-wide VCS for all documents and software

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Friendly work environment. My co-workers, along with my manger were a pleasure to work with.
    -Professional Organization. In regards to the values of the organization, NGC is great. They really do strive to be a top-tier organization.
    -Good medical benefits and 401K plan.

    Cons

    -Hard to move up. Moving up the corporate ladder if only easy if you work at one of the main campuses.
    -Pay raises are minimal.
    -Constant concerns of labor shortages and lay-offs. For the last couple of years they have had numerous rounds of lay-offs. This greats, as you can image a high level of anxiety among the work force.
