Pros

Rich history, good people to work with, privy to some very interesting technology, easy commute from almost anywhere on Long Island.

Cons

Early start time but that is to allow for half day Fridays which is actually really nice. Lots of meetings for no good reason.

Advice to Management

Keep things simple, ease up on the meetings, try to promote more harmony between different groups I mean everyone is on the same team!

    Pros

    Good benefits but nothing earth shaking beyond that.

    Cons

    Move you around from office to office without notice and expect you to keep up your work load while interrupting it all the time. You like working in an 8 ft by 8 ft cell? Come work here! Cubicle city. Management doesn't care about their employees. The job market is bad and they know it. After all where are you going to go? Boeing??

    If you are looking to further your career, look elsewhere. This is not the company for you. Promotions and positions of authority and power are handed out to friends and friends of friends to the detriment of the mission and the employee morale. Positions are posted as required but they are taken down as soon as a "qualified candidate" is found which usually takes hours. Individuals that are part of the "management click" are moved from one location to the next while a position can be created to bring them in under the protection of a friend that just happens to be the hiring manager. Seen that more than once.

    If you happen to be a woman or minority you have a much better chance of success at North Grumman. They are promoted over others to maintain the "diversity" to the misfortune of better qualified candidates.

    For better or worse, that's the way it is at Northrop Grumman. I have been here for more than a few years and have seen this behavior more than once.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good ol'boy/girl networks. It obvious to the rest of us.

    Pros

    There is some satisfaction knowing the work helps protect our country.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and hypocritical. Bloated, ridged, and untested processes. While the systems we develop are essential they are certainly not developed with cost in mind. Often, designs function but contain many latent faults affecting long term reliability and supportability.
    No career growth. Expected to perform and be rated on uncompensated tasks. Other than that, it’s ok.
