    Pros

    Highly Competitive Benefits program
    Strategic Focus with Great Alignment to Corporate Mission and Vision
    Commitment to outreach programs and local organizational communities

    Cons

    Talent Management Program is somewhat limited for mid-career personnel. Model tends to let many leading technical professionals slip away.

    Frequent corporate to division to departmental realignments limit momentum for high-performer personnel and top performing departments and divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Designate career development plan for all stages of personnel development (college/entry, Mid career, and Sr./executives) and align corporate resources for each demographic.

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401k, bonuses, tuition reimbursement, endless opportunities for advancement, and great pay!

    Cons

    Nothing remotely bad to say about my experience with the company! It's an employer you can be proud to work for!

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed all of my managers. Either I was lucky, or they were happy with their subordinates, and position.

    Pros

    I enjoy my actual job itself and the pay is enough for the responsibilities and accountability that I have on any given day. The manager seems to care about my general status and career aspirations.

    Cons

    I honestly don't have anything bad to say about the company. I have been blessed enough to get what I have put in. I don't think I am undervalued, but the general body does have that feeling.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance, fantastic benefits, great management, very good pay scale. I feel valued at this company.

    Cons

    You're a cog in the wheel no matter how you look at it.

    Advice to Management

    If Northrop acted more in the sense of a small startup company while retaining its large company status this company would overtake boeing in a heartbeat.
