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

    Pros

    - Pretty easy to stand out
    - Lots of career opportunities
    - Very good locations
    - Excellent work/life balance (not much night shift)
    - It's pretty hard to lose your job there
    - Bleeding Edge product offerings

    Cons

    - Way too many layers of management
    - Way too many managers at each level
    - Management Oversight is too high on contract proposals; NG can't compete well as a result
    - Transferring out of a department is difficult if you don't have someone pulling you
    - It's better to look good than to be good
    - Raises are the same whether you're Extremely Effective or Extremely Ineffective
    - They lag upgrading personal workstations (For instance, I was upgraded from Windows 95 to Windows 2000 long after Windows XP was available)

    Advice to Management

    Please consider process improvement initiatives for the support functions - not just manufacturing. The true opportunities for cutting costs exists in evaluating what is really necessary to support your shop floor. Keep a watchful eye on management's "Empire Building".

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very professional and well run organization which has contracting opportunities throughout multiple Department of Defense agencies/organizations

    Cons

    The salary offered sometimes isn't as high as competing firms. I translate this into higher overhead costs that such a large firm must incorporate into every one of their contracts.
