    Cons

    Need a lot of self direction to work here. Equipment is dated and way behind industry standard. There is no lateral structure

    Offer more opportunites to self growth. Also try to make people less depressed by painting the walls or something

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company values education and provides education assistance. I believe it is a great company to begin your career and you learn a lot from many highly intelligent people.

    Cons

    It's not a great company to spend your whole career due to limited upward mobility and lack of challenging or rewarding work. The company has a very antiquated form of management and oversight. People are not very motivated here from my experience and your opinion does not really count.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage/seek to place younger generations in higher and more challenging roles. Work to create new exciting career paths for younger generations to stop bleeding talent.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    Company seems to go out of it's way to not lay people off and great coworkers

    Cons

    Major programs are dwindling and many organizations are shrinking making it very difficult to find growth opportunities. Training funds seem to be shrinking as well leading to stagnation. Little to no merit raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more rotational opportunities to your employees, it cross trains and provides new challenges/learning which can mitigate the small merit increases.
