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

Pros

Good work life balance, no more than 40 hrs a week needed to complete work. People in general are friendly

Cons

Work isn't the most challenging, if you looking for a 9 to 5 and don't want to grow your skill set it can become complacent. If you want to learn more and be cutting edge you won't like environment. Top performers are not recognized anymore than sub par performers have to bite your tongue and ignore it.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Unmanned systems division provides a lot of interesting work, in a safe area of the government defense budget. Salaries are pretty good.

    Cons

    Management has gotten top heavy, and with people only interested in signing up for hyper aggressive schedules without any plan to be able to execute; leaving it up to engineering to pull off heroics for long periods of time (years, not weeks). Burns people out

    Advice to Management

    Tie schedules to actual tasking.. not on relying on everyone giving up their personal time for years (NGC is not a startup, don't pretend otherwise).
