    Pros

    Large companies with many opportunities for career growth. Locations around the United States and Europe. Excellent employer for new college grads as many opportunities exist.

    Cons

    Very restrictive with many policies, procedures and individual thought or innovativeness in process is not necessarily welcome. Do it the way it has been done seems to be the motto.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and be innovative in processes. Decisions seem to be made at the top level of management. Let the lower level managers make decisions so changes can occur more quickly.

    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.
