    Current Employee - Cost Estimating Analyst IV in Redondo Beach, CA

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/balance is good - depending on the program and functional area. Projects are cutting edge and interesting scientifically. Lot opportunity to move around after you have a couple of years under your belt. A lot of old timers are leaving or have left. This will open up a lot of doors for new hires and recent college grads. They have a generous grad school subsidy (business and science).

    Cons

    Overachievers are not necessarily rewarded more against their peers (unless you count more work!). Raises are barely in line with inflation. Nepotism and politics can still reign over competency. Bureaucracy can be beyond frustrating. HR still approaches promotion based on years of experience first not necessarily ability or talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scale pay to performance for those working "direct" i.e. contribute directly to the bottom line. Cut down the administrative bureaucracy (too many provincial entities within company with their own agenda, missives, websites, emails, and rules). Encourage (i.e. reward) problem solving entrepreneurial spirit.

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

    Pros

    Interesting work, most people are hardworking and mission-focused. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is lacking. Off-site employees (like me) were very disconnected from corporate and denied advancement or other opportunities. Big emphasis on profits, sometimes when it wasn't in the best interest of the USG. Most of the internal systems (payroll, talent management, etc.) are broken and nonfunctional if you are remotely located.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to do a better job connecting with employees who don't live near a major operations center.
