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

Pros

Great co-workers, bosses, and decent benefits.

Cons

Sadly as with all companies in this current environment, benefits are getting cut back.

Advice to Management

Don't let the bean counters run your company. It is the employees that make or break a company. Do right by your employees and they will do right by you!

    Pros

    It was great working on military aircraft systems quality control before it was installed.
    The oldest projects Did want to expend for much process, getting a CMMI or ISO 9001 certification. That fulfilled my goal of being an efficiency expert as in Cheaper By the Dozen, the original novel, not the Steve Martin movies. All QAs should read it.
    On the later project, the week-long formal test sessions in Pax River Naval Air Station and Bethpage, Long Island were great. Long Island is beautiful, you have got to see it.

    Cons

    The last project did Not want to expend for much process, let alone getting a CMMI or ISO 9001 certification.
    Some of our offices had their restrooms and cafeteria in the attached factory buildings.
    With Sequestration and budget cuts, defense contractors face an uncertain future.

    Advice to Management

    As the 2 (or few) remaining men-only old colleges say:
    "The student will not lie, cheat, or steal, nor tolerate those who do."
    The other code is that of gentlemanly behavior, which states "The student will behave as a gentleman at all times and in all places."
    No further detailed ethics or behavioral rules.
    Engineering schools could see the results and adopt these codes.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, outstanding approach to managing team members. Great access to IT tools and processes. Industry recognized from organizations outside the company.

    Cons

    The company has a broad range of capabilities across the 4 or 5 sectors. It can be hard to identify specific individuals to support developing a bid with the right technical back ground. For years it has been very hard to work across Sectors and Business units.

    Advice to Management

    Suggest that the company structure its business units across a wider range of cost pools so that on price sensitive bids the flexibility is available to staff programs a across a wider range of salaries and burden rates.
