I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time

Pros

Good benefits; lots of opportunities to work on pretty cool stuff that benefits the US military (and others)! If you're willing to relocate, NG has lots of opportunities across the company, and seems to do a good job of enabling employees to move to a new job/place.

Cons

- As a defense contractor, NG follows the highs and lows of defense work -- right now defense is shrinking, as seen by lots of defense contractors (Lockheed Martin, NG, Raytheon, etc.) having layoffs.
- If you want to work on cool commercial stuff, a defense contractor isn't the place.
- For software developers, not a lot of decent process in place across the company, nor decent training company-wide for developers.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Allows for flexible work hours. Education assistance is available with training on and off site.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and slow to promote achievers. Management overall lack leadership. Currently in a declining industry for the next ten years. Projects/programs can be severely hampered by government auditors.

    Advice to Management

    Give more power and accountability to lower management. Discision making is too high up to be timely and effective, causing lower to middle management to become bureaucratic administrators rather than leaders.
