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

Pros

The company is reowned for developing quality products for the US military. It is a solid company with great benefits and many growth opportunities.

Cons

When the defense budget is cut, there is a "domino effect" on government contractors. That is the downside of this business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I enjoy a management style that allows their employees to be creative, innovative, and that allows for team playing.

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

    Pros

    Good hours. 980 (every other Friday off). Virtually impossible to get fired for anything other than budget cuts. Very low expectations. Promotions are on a timer - you get promoted after X number of years, not after demonstrating your worth. Very attractive if you don't want to work very hard.

    Cons

    Enjoy your 2% raises while the CEO rakes in upwards of $20 million every year. No promotions/pay increases for the top performers. Some bonuses are given out very discretely, but are not very large at all (typically less than a signing bonus from any other NG's competitors). HR has an absolute death grip on the company. First level management is generally terrible. The company cannot stop re-organizing (I was part of 6 re-orgs in about 4 years). The facilities are hazardous to your health - especially El Segundo and Manhattan Beach. The stuff floating around in the water and air is literally toxic.

    Do not work here if you are young, motivated, and expecting big things for your career. You will find yourself pigeon-holed, doing 3x as much work as the 25 year veteran sitting next to you, who is getting paid at least twice as much as you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit.

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

    Pros

    Great work models, pay, benefits, time off, regular opportunities to advance, opportunities to transfer to other work sites or cross-train into another field, full open-door policy all the way up to the top.

    Cons

    Little supervision on some sites, union biases from supervisors at times, difficult work conditions (rain or shine the work gets done), and often the work is done outdoors regardless of the climate conditions (cold, hot, wind, sand, and humidity- doesn’t matter), pay generally compensates for difficulty, though the “military mentality” is the general culture where some may find this kind of environment difficult to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Opportunity to advance is available to everyone including company provided training/cross-training to other fields, college reimbursement, easy transfer to other locations or work sites through an open-bid process (state-side, around the world, or the shop next door). One-on-one professional counseling from Human Resources, management, and training specialists to aid in promotions.
