I worked at Northrop Grumman

Pros

For the team I was on - great synergy, always worked with the latest technologies. Some of the things we developed were very progressive and innovative - leading edge stuff. That had a lot to do with the customers and their missions.

Cons

For that particular project, not enough space for all the people who worked on the project. It got better with time though. I think fewer retired military in senior positions would have made a big difference too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think management back east would do well to look to hiring Senior Managers for the Sierra Vista area from places outside of the local area. Certainly some people with more a more technical background would likely help.

    Pros

    Big company - with lots of money. Stable.

    Cons

    Does not pay as they should for their IT professionals. They keep a big margin for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your employees well. Don't be so greedy.

    Pros

    Good benefits at a low cost

    Cons

    Meetings, meetings meetings.....which are the 1- 5 hour solution to every question that should only take an email or short call to solve. Most people from bottom to top level are in meetings at least 6 hours per day, with most days being 8+ hrs. Then you see emails at all hours of the night and on weekends/holidays as that's the only time anyone really goes to work. Every meeting is an inquisition or finger pointing session as well. Most of the mgmt have been there since the 80's and are stuck in that mentality. Definitely an "I say, you do" mgmt environment with little consideration for what the employees think. People with 10-20 yrs of experience are treated like children. Mgmt pushes the buttons, sit back, provide ZERO direction, and then ask "where's my stuff"? Why pay them the high salaries when you could hire anyone off the street to do that?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in new mgmt blood to McLean (if anyone's willing) and be a little more progressive with regard to mgmt styles and work environment. Unfortunately, however, I'm not sure if that will work as most people at all levels share nothing as to how to do anything, and there's of course, no training.
