Pros

Northrop Grumman is a large, structured organization. The systems and products are important and participation in them gives a sense of accomplishment.

Cons

There are endless policies and procedures, many of which seem inconsistent and poorly thought out. There is relatively little opportunity for independent initiative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase local autonomy and responsibility and focus on strategic goals. In a large organization (120k+ employees) not everything is the same everywhere.

    Dinosaur technology: Company builds to the status quo instead of pushing the use of advanced technology. Slow to embrace new ideas.

    Take more chances on new technology.
    Offer better mentoring and training opportunities for employees.
    Be more generous.
