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

    Pros

    Salaries are not the highest in the industry, but are generally good.
    Pretty good 401k contributions and benefits (medical, dental, vision, etc).
    Lots of locations to transfer between, if necessary/desired.
    Technical professions are highly valued (especially senior engineers).

    Cons

    Company management has become fixated on short-term results (stock price).
    Lower level employees not sufficiently valued. This is a company that places more importance on seniority and personal connections than skill or work ethic.
    Very slow career progression as older employees do not retire often.
    Upper management pushing "engagement" to drive performance, but middle management is highly resistant thus far (approx 3 years since launch)
    Indirect functions (HR, Security, Facilities, etc) are significantly underfunded, understaffed and disrespected

    Advice to Management

    Performance is essential, but don't lose sight of what drives performance... Employees. Upper management is too focused on short-term metrics and rewarding senior employees. Meanwhile, the bulk of the workforce (exempt levels 1-4) is revolting against current plans to shift even more compensation away from the rank and file and more towards Managers, Directors and Executives. This used to be a company that people wanted to spend 30-40 years working for. But now, because the company doesn't invest in them, employees are beginning to see this as "just another job." The irony is that much lip service is being given to greater employee engagement while the company destroys the conditions necessary to improve engagement.
