I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

health benefits were very good and the company has on site health clinics every 6 months or so. Cholesterol and blood pressure screening for free.

Cons

Not too green thinking or eco friendly, insisted on using fluorscent bulbs and when asked if we could turn them off overhead they would not allow.

Advice to Management

Be proactive in bringing back employees after contract ends. Be more up front about contract end dates and not secretive. Use more telecommuting, people traveled great distance to come to work and were tired after a horrendous commute in DC area. Make use of NG buildings close to the employees home instead of having them travel across town and pass an NG building on their block.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Educational Opportunities for life long learning are highly encouraged and supported.

    Cons

    Limited career growth, salary increases plateau (essentially amount to a COLA), which barely keep pace with inflationary pressures -driving the perception that you are moving backwards annually.

    Advice to Management

    Hold on to your talent...There are many incentives that can be leveraged but the one that always speaks the loudest in terms of an employees perception of value to the organization are wages. Even in today's economic uncertainty their is no sound logic in investing in your talent pool only to have them ensure your competition succeeds.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company and you can get lost in the sauce. Benefits are standard but are decreasing never increasing.

    Cons

    Medical coverage cost went up every year, raises were low, does not like to move contractor employees to new positions, would rather hire from outside. They have a lot of people that are "stuck" working there as they can't find better without losing accrued leave time.

    Advice to Management

    If someone qualifies for a different position, let them move to it rather than make them stay in a position that drives them to leave the company.
