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

    Pros

    The company is still producing some amazing air vehicles and is becoming proficient in other areas as well. Working here definitely provides the opportunity to collaborate on products that will benefit many people with a positive impact on their lives.

    Cons

    The goal of "affordability" seems to be the only consideration, and employee morale is suffering because of it. For example, the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve are no longer holidays, and while that saves the company money, disgruntled employees will inevitably work less efficiently, thereby costing the company more money in the long run.

    I think it'll be a better place to work for when the current generation of managers retire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those who are aware and deal with the problems, not only the people who control the budget. Obviously you can't spend money on every little problem, but not enough consideration was given to those who knew how to provide solutions.

    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.
