Would not recommend this company.

Engineer I (Current Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I have been working at Northrop Grumman

ProsIf you like working on defense contracts, and don't mind paper work, it isn't a bad place for job stability (and knowing what to expect on a day-to-day basis) when there are plenty of contracts. Watch out when contracts are about to end, though.

ConsOnce contracts come to a close, you may be laid off (it's the nature of defense contracting). Middle management is pretty inept in terms of assigning adequate work and encouraging career growth. Everyday operations are incredibly inefficient and riddled with large amounts of paperwork and Powerpoint presentations, but very little actual design work. Promotions are given out based on tenure, not merit. And raises are given out based on averages amongst people with your same job title, so all-in-all, raises are given just at the level of inflation (or a bit lower).

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage hard work by rewarding people based on merit, not tenure. Apply company policies with integrity, do not use them as excuses to penalize employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
