    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very dedicated engineering and technical staff. Many of the technologies are interesting, and there are opportunities to do good engineering work to make improvements to the programs. Most front line managers truly care for their employees, with flexible work hours, time off for family etc. Salaries are good, benefits are ok, though slowly eroding.

    Cons

    Upper management is completely beholden to the bottom line. The corporation wants to pay stock dividends each quarter, and upper management will do anything they can to make that happen. From a career advancement standpoint, it can be very difficult to advance in some areas of the company. This can be very frustration, especially when you see other equally (or lesser) qualified people one or two rungs up from you. Many managers are reluctant to promote qualified people. From an engineering standpoint, it can be very difficult to advance new ideas that aren't directly tied to a current program and provide cost savings. Internal R+D is usually alotted to a chosen few. In the end, it can be hard to break through professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions and performance reviews should at least be consistent within a department and a group. Push engagement, especially from mid level managers. They should be getting more interaction with the engineers. Provide lots of opportunities for professional development.
