I have been working at Northrop Grumman

Pros

Pay
What was flexible work time in HR
Lower and mid management are helpful and understanding
Large company with diverse people (for engineer types that is)
Unique work

Cons

Upper management not developing consensus, most actions and policies are all "pushed down" to us.
"Challenge up, support down" does not really seem to be practiced in many areas re: project execution, flexible work, telework, general communication styles.
Losing telework
Engineer types

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop consensus with bonafide employee committees
End nepotism of the good ol buddy kind
Try that one show, Undercover boss out at Northrop. Boy, you might be surprised.

    Pros

    strong benefit package, flexible hours, consistent feedback, tuition disbursement, and alot of other things i could mention if i wanted to.

    Cons

    small world hard to see what other parts of the sector or NG as a whole due to the nature of many programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    a flatter management structure would probably benefit transparency from the grunts up the chain and allow for more cross pollination.

    Pros

    NGST allows engineers to work on technical and very complex projects. It has the resources and experienced personnel to find answers to almost any problem. They will send you to school, send you to workshops/conferences, and bring in teachers for technical subjects. Good managers who treat you fair and let you take vacation. Because it is big there are a lot of other people your age and experience so you can make connections. Pay a bit more than average. Opportunity to make your own career path.

    Cons

    Typical aerospace problems not really NGST specific. Slow pace work, risk aversion, dead wood, government funding cycles, and despite their best efforts promotion by seniority not merit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find some way to speed the process up
