    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    Extremely laid-back culture that is very work / life balance friendly. People that join the company usually stay for their entire careers.

    Cons

    Many non-motivated employees that are there to just collect their pension. Very very change resistant culture from the top down. Business operations that are stuck in the early 80's, using SAP to over engineer everything!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut some of the fat from the company and focus on giving some of the younger motivated employees a chance to contribute instead of relying on 25 year tenured engineers making the business decisions.

    Pros

    Talented engineers with integrity
    Professional work environment
    Good work/life balance
    Significant national security programs
    Variety of programs to work on (reasonably diversified business)

    Cons

    Misalignment of incentives - emphasis upon financial performance, but no rewards to rank-and-file
    Poor vision from senior management
    Insufficient efforts to win new business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonuses should be flowed bonuses down much further; and/or, make success sharing driven more by project accomplishments. Encourage a more entrepreneurial culture, one that incentivizes the prudent taking of risks. Continue to reduce levels of hierarchy.
