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

Pros

- An abundance of interesting projects / programs that are geared towards our Nation's Defense.
- Tons of experience can be obtained in multiple competency areas
- Great place for someone to kick-off their career, allowing individuals to better plan for future career development opportunities

Cons

- Lacks diversity, especially at the senior leadership level
- Roles are practically silo-ed and opportunity to advance is slim
- No real learning development for employees
- Company relies on work provided in Government contracts and its success is largely dependent on it

Advice to Management

Management needs to create a more collaborative environment, especially with junior employees. Since the type of the work can be very secretive in nature, management needs to focus on developing younger crowd, obtaining their trust in order to award them opportunities to build their careers at the company.

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

    Pros

    Resources, Evolving focus on talent development, Leadership with technical backgrounds, True desire to build value and quality and to innovate. Very few people issues I've seen.

    Cons

    Most work is with Govt contracting agencies who are typically wholly incompetent as an organization. There are too many layers on the customer side between the true customer (the soldier/airman) and the developer (NG). There will be a few who "get it" but the Draconian govt process will erode away at the final product only to leave the blame on the contractor. This can be frustrating and you must maintain optimism and find the ones who "get it".

    Advice to Management

    From the Division Leadership level, upwards, you are not getting the whole picture which is why some of you struggle with why certain things will not change. Our well developed processes are the very thing holding back the folk in the trenches.
