I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Mobility within company, great people, amazing products and technology. 9/80 schedule, educational reimbursement, health plans, on-site cafeteria, credit union, doc/nurse, health coordinator, employee resource groups (ERG).

Cons

Politics, politics, politics, the "good old boys club" runs rampant, ignorant uneducated management (mismanagement), poor (none) design-for-manifacturability, HR is corporate and on the side of the company not an advocate for employee, NEPOTISM from the TOP down (hiring and promoting incompetent, unqualified people based on bloodlines, personal relationships, shared foreign nationality -hint hint Middle East), harassment and different treatment of women, rewards and awards programs"revamped" designed to minimize opportunities for employees and reduced $ amount of awards, employee reviews based on politics and quotas (allegedly) from corporate (think of that one horrible teacher in college who only gave two A's max no matter the merit), regular layoffs, layoffs based on management politics.

Advice to Management

Be leaders, not sheep. Do the right thing and do the thing right, be ethical, hire, reward and promote on merit and potential not on personal relations,
