I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than a year)

Pros

At Northrop we have a competitive initial salary and good fair managers.

Cons

One possible downside is the lack of competitive raises once actually hired on.

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

    Pros

    Relatively good pay, decent facilities, plenty of opportunity to keep your life balanced with needs from home

    Cons

    - Lack of technical challenges for engineers. Several years at the company may yield 3-4 weeks of really fun challenging learning and work, and the rest is powerpoint and contract management.
    - Excessive bureaucracy and focus on acquisition accounting gets in the way of focusing on how to deliver value to customer (in this case the govt)

    Advice to Management

    Start innovating and coming up with new products rather than trying to just try to keep dying contracts

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

    Pros

    Working on the latest technologies was professionally rewarding and most of the staff was motivated and collaborative. All in all a pleasant work environment and delightful peers.

    Cons

    Management seems confused and 6 reorganizations in 5 years led to a general feeling of fear about the next reorg. Seemed to be a lot of musical chairs at the executive level with unqualified executives in charge of divisions they had NO experience with.

    Advice to Management

    Develop some long-term planning and appreciate the excellent work being performed by the common folk and not just "lip service".
