No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Best work-life balance. I personally never had to work unpaid overtime, and could work 40 hours a week in 4 days then take a day off with little notice. Great benefits.

Cons

Big projects, work on system c/c++ code which is hard to find a job in the job market with just that skill set. Development environment was a nightmare because of classified networks. Company was big and you def didn't get the feel that they cared about you.

Advice to Management

Middle management syndrome. Listen to the developers and their ideas on process. Time to move projects and pressure clients to agile.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quick program integration, leadership and management opportunities. Previous experience is acknowledged and leveraged to manage and impact several important department of defense programs within your scope of expertise. A high tech company with a good mix of experience and new (fresh) engineering personnel/ideas. Great people and good working environment.

    Cons

    Vague organizational structure (at mid level) with unclear responsibilities often makes you feel that program management of projects, and processes is in chaos and that important business development opportunities are being missed/mal-managed with inefficient coordination with the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Concise and well understood organizational structures with responsibilities on paper and in actual execution is critical to efficient operations, personnel job satisfaction and optimum performance.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of challenging work at the system of systems company. Lots of training opportunities for those willing to invest their spare time in classwork or company initiatives. Decent budget for job-related classes.

    Cons

    We are working in an austere environment. Lower costs are more important than a technical improvement. New processes evolve fast and require management intervention during "upgrades."

    Advice to Management

    keep a balance of low volume satellite business expertise vs aircraft high volume business.
