I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

NG maintained a training budget that employees could use with their manager's approval. Training required a 1 year commitment to remain with NG.

Cons

Almost impossible to advance out of a billable position. Once they had you brining in a check from the customer, they did not want you to leave for another position within the company.

Advice to Management

Allow your employees to develop full careers instead of thinking of them purely as a piece of a contract vehicle.

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

    Pros

    *Great environment for those who like loose management (not the case 100% of the time though)
    *Good benefits (Education reimbursement, 401K, health, etc)
    *The company as a whole is great - fantastic CEO
    *Good facilities
    *Many opportunities to learn from knowledgeable people
    *Fascinating work

    Cons

    *Very, very little accountability; those who were a detriment to the company weren't dealt with very well or at all
    *Very little acknowledgement for those who performed in an outstanding manner. Generally in the form of "Lets just make everyone feel good" rather than pointing out stellar contributors
    *Multiple reductions in force over the last couple of years, >50% downsizing in my division
    *Poor communication between management and the production floor
    *Poor design for manufacturing
    *Poor designs in general many times
    *Military contract dependant

    Advice to Management

    I can't even being to stress how important communication is... all the way down the line.
