Pros

Good work balance. Great company to work and a nice environment. Company is very flexible with all the employees. Opportunities to participate in rotation programs.

Cons

Very slow to advance from one position to another one. Work is based on contracts. It takes time to get a promotion.

Advice to Management

Management should focus more to promote employees quicker to the next levels. They should also focus in engagement to motive all their employees.

    Pros

    This is a great company with nice compensation depending on experience. It is a large company with many opportunities to enhance your career, so it is easy to stay in just one company. Since it is large, each program has its own culture, leadership and process. Generally, managers do look out for you when you need another project to go to. There are a lot of company jobs out there that you can also apply for yourself. Since it's a defense company you have a chance to work with many interesting military technologies and challenges. Just like anywhere, a good reputation counts at Northrop Grumman, which will be advantageous when you need to transition to another project, or position.

    Cons

    It's easy to feel comfortable in the same position, so try to learn as much as you can about other functional areas so that you can understand the business, and enable you take advantage of new opportunities.

    The opportunities are not always available in California.

    Leadership varies among project and organizations.

    I'm not sure if this is a company wide issue, but I find that in the past, some hiring managers fail to follow-up with job seeking employees, and don't return emails or phone calls. Managers should communicate with the employee directly or via the Talent System and provide the status of interview process, whether denied, in-process, etc. I understand that there may be a lot of candidates to consider, but at least inform the job seeker, so that other arrangements can be made.

    Advice to Management

    When there are important technical issues to be solved, perhaps management should consider and encourage all team members in the project to participate, and not just work group members. Sometimes non-working group members may have invaluable insight which may lead to a better solution. Cultivate an open communication among employees, and catch and reward good behavior; the reward doesn't have to be monetary. Grow employees so that the project can improve by taking advantage of the existing skill set of each employee, which may extend beyond his or her functional area. Encourage employees to cross-learn other functions areas, doing this may lead to better solutions, and ultimately a better product.

    Pros

    Decent compensation. Worth staying if you are still eligible for a pension.

    Cons

    After 40, you are no longer appreciated if you choose to remain technical. Bonus structure design to recognize managers, promotion primarily designated to those in the good old boy network. Voice these to line mgmt, your career is over!

    Advice to Management

    Mgmt is killing the company and stop lining your own pockets with bennies and then leaving the company 2 years later!
