Pros

The pay was competitive, The manager (SH) is competent and has been in the role a long time.

Cons

Lots of nepotism, the deputy managers and leads are very aggressive. The leads don't seem competent in the area they are leading. No communication, you have to research everything yourself. There are cliques and brown-nosing is a must to receive good increases. Too many different teams and I was often finding out information about my team from cross-talk from people outside the team. The constant change of work-order/pay codes gave an increasing sense of disorganization - at one point forcing employees to leave an area with one day notice because their contract expired.

Advice to Management

Hire people who know the job, and who know how to manage and not lead by fear and intimidation

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Drive to work is relatively close to home and traffic is not too much of an issue. 401k available, dental available, medical available, and vision benefits available. Company matches your 401k dollar for dollar up to 4 percent. Some sectors are given the opportunity to share in the profit at the end of each year. The company provides a new percent goal each year that ranges from 1 percent to 4 percent. Of course, the 4 percent goal can never be reached. Average bonus received each year normally runs around 2.5 percent against the employees yearly salary. New employees receive 2 wks vacation after 1 year and accrues additional hours for each year worked thereafter

    Cons

    cronyism and nepotism exists among the management

    Advice to Management

    mgrs should be chosen based on ability not cronyism or nepotism

    Pros

    Northrop Grumman offers onsite classes for continuing education. This offers opportunity to learn things. It has decent benefit packages as well. They have good work and life balance, and flexible schedule. The one week company shutdown at the end of the year is nice too.

    Cons

    Northrop Grumman is a large company. You feel like a small fish in the ocean. Some decisions are made based on politics. I seen some bad managements and people who should not be in management role.

    Advice to Management

    I think there need to be more knowledge sharing. The company needs to improve the morale on the workplace. Managers need to be in touch with employees under them to build relationships.
