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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance
    You're given time to learn what you need, not a lot of pressure
    Good mentorship program, although mentors don't seem to have a lot of power to help you

    Cons

    Entrenched staff gives young engineers little room to get challenging work and be promoted
    By-the-book development process, little room for creativity
    Micromanagement from your immediate supervisor, most likely due to the need to adhere to internal processes
    Current DoD budget cuts keep staff in fear of losing their jobs
    Crappy benefits, no ESPP, poor 401k selection, high deductible insurance plan
    Bad coffee
    Very spartan office
    This is the only company that I would not rejoin among all the companies I've worked for

    Advice to Management

    Keep your new hires engaged and motivated, otherwise they'll leave out of boredom

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

    Pros

    A very developed, accessible training program. One has great potential to see engineering projects from the ground up. Management supports employees with the resources and flexibility to get projects done the way they are intended to.

    Cons

    There are several hoops and issues get financial resources from the government customer, as in with any other defense contractor. Because everything the company does is very engineering focused, if you are not interested in permanently working in this environment, it is not for you.
