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

    Pros

    Great place if you're lazy and prefer to not really work.

    Cons

    NG ES has managed to boil every job down to the most menial and excruciatingly boring task. There are so many layers of management, and non of them seem to have a clue. Raises come once a year if you're lucky and they don't keep up with inflation. The convoluted performance appraisal system is just a way for them to waste your time and in the end you'll receive the going raise +/- 1% depending on how your manager likes you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop conducting gallup surveys to try to figure out how to better engage your employees. Drastic changes need to be made, nothing from a survey is going to help explain how to fix the severe cultural issues.
