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

    Pros

    Interesting work, most people are hardworking and mission-focused. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is lacking. Off-site employees (like me) were very disconnected from corporate and denied advancement or other opportunities. Big emphasis on profits, sometimes when it wasn't in the best interest of the USG. Most of the internal systems (payroll, talent management, etc.) are broken and nonfunctional if you are remotely located.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do a better job connecting with employees who don't live near a major operations center.

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

    Pros

    Northrop Grumman is a very large company, but it has sites which are both huge as well as tiny that are involved in many different things. You can move around and try different things and see what fits you best. I also like that they offer an optional brokerage window as part of their 401K which allows you to choose your own investments.

    Cons

    Some NG sites are unionized (not engineering), which if you are a hands on kind of engineer, can be extremely aggravating. i have never worked at one of NG's unionized sites so I do not have personal experience at NG with their unions, but I have worked at a different company that had unionized labor before and it was a substantial annoyance. Picking up a soldering iron could get you a union grievance filed against you.
