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

Pros

Ability to move up quickly or across multiple programs because the company likes to use its resources to their full potential.

Cons

The only cons that I have seen is the difficulty cutting through the bureaucracy that can short circuit a project as it is getting off the ground.

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

    Pros

    Mostly hardworking coworkers focused on the deliverables we've committed to. There's a strong sense of purpose to completing team goals.

    Cons

    Terrible focus on employee growth except for interns and short skirts. Northrop's annual salary pools are worse than their competitor's and don't inspire anyone to excel. There benefits are becoming less competitive every year. They really don't plan to keep anyone longer than a few years since they only pay new employees well to get them to join.

    Advice to Management

    You conduct an annual employee survey, and then ignore the negative answers. If you focus on improving your survey results through actual change, you'd be unstoppable. Alas, we all know the survey is just Fortune 500 window dressing. I bet the executives get a giant bonus even when the results don't improve.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work models, pay, benefits, time off, regular opportunities to advance, opportunities to transfer to other work sites or cross-train into another field, full open-door policy all the way up to the top.

    Cons

    Little supervision on some sites, union biases from supervisors at times, difficult work conditions (rain or shine the work gets done), and often the work is done outdoors regardless of the climate conditions (cold, hot, wind, sand, and humidity- doesn’t matter), pay generally compensates for difficulty, though the “military mentality” is the general culture where some may find this kind of environment difficult to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunity to advance is available to everyone including company provided training/cross-training to other fields, college reimbursement, easy transfer to other locations or work sites through an open-bid process (state-side, around the world, or the shop next door). One-on-one professional counseling from Human Resources, management, and training specialists to aid in promotions.
