    Pros

    Northrop is huge and therefore gives a lot of potential if you're willing to move around. They also have a pretty awesome SEA program if you want to try different things and see different places. The people here (at least in my office) are great to work with, very laid back environment, and everyone knows their stuff.

    Cons

    The employee review process is somewhat of a joke (if you're not one of the "important people" or in high visibility situations). Managers will give you no areas to improve upon, yet rate you low, give a low raise, and make you wait longer than necessary for a minor promotion. There is a high turnover rate because of this process.

    Advice to Management

    Start giving employees what they're actually worth.

    Friendly and easy-going work environment.

    Defense contractors' contracts/projects/programs process can be frustrating.


  7. Nice benefits, no room for growth in rural area

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time

    Pros

    Really nice and competitive benefits. Some of the best in the area.

    Cons

    If you are at a rural offshoot of this company, don't expect to really get anywhere. They love employees at the larger locations however.

    Pros

    Mid-level compensation for most employees compared to peers. Great leadership and introductory programs for junior employees. Comparable benefits to rest of big DoD firms. If you can find a good project, you can learn a lot from senior leadership.

    Cons

    The company seems to be increasingly financially focused in the budgetary downturn. Engineering and technical strategy takes a back seat in all decisions. Management is currently struggling to figure out how to balance innovation and profitability.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace some transparency so all employees can contribute to helping the company succeed, whatever that may entail. Treat technical skill as assets, not just a disposable commodity.

    Pros

    Northrop Grumman is a long established and diverse corporation. They provide many products to the U. S. Defense Department. One can be proud to say that they worked for such and industry leader.

    Cons

    The hours can be very long. The stress level can also be very high. Northrop Grumman no longer offers a pension plan to its incoming employees.

    Advice to Management

    Separate the space division from the aircraft division. Put legacy TRW management back in charge of the space division operations. Dump SAP!!!

    Pros

    I have always wanted to work for NGC. I have been working for NGC for close to 5 months and the company has not disappointed me. A few of the things that I love about NGC are the 9/80, salary, work-life balance, my organization, a few of my coworkers....

    Cons

    I know NGC is attempting to adopt a one company philosophy. Hopefully, management speeds up the process and adopts best practices from each NGC site.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your current employees happy, treat them the way you are treating the new hires. I think a lot of current employees feel a little unappreciated.
