Good benefits, but managers were completely unhelpful.

Pros

Good benefits and pay, when a good contract was available.

Cons

Raises are small since the company is always trying to reduce its costs. Managers don't pay any attention to their employees and offer no career advancement opportunities. HR does very little to help find you a new position if your contract has been cut.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some managers that actually do something with their subordinates. Pay attention to career objectives.

    Pros

    NG does a better job of avoid layoff compared to other aerospace/defense companies.

    Cons

    Lately NG seems a bit too interested in "shareholder value" and has lost regard for employee value.

    Former Employee - Financial Analyst in El Segundo, CA

    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.
