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

Pros

Interesting work. Some challenging issues. Some non-government related work that is of greater interest than the old systems sponsored through the military.

Cons

Benefits diminishing by the day. Pension plan has been cancelled. Harder and harder to make a livable wage as pay increases are almost non existent, and taxes, fee's, and state and federal issues far exceed any monetary gain made (especially for the area in which we work, i.e. Redondo Beach, CA - wish they'd relocate to Texas). Can't really get ahead anymore. Salaried employee's tend to be worked to death without any additional monetary compensation. These are not really complaints as it is the same everywhere in the bigger aerospace companies (I've worked for them all at some time or another throughout my career).

Advice to Management

The pension plan should never have been terminated.

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

    Pros

    Working with seasoned professionals in developing automation of medical records for DoD and VA, while seeing government's commitment to projects begin to fade

    Cons

    Trying to maintain an active work schedule in the face of declining numbers of proposal opportunities by taking on proposal-related work for other projects.

    Advice to Management

    Analyze proposal opportunities against published budgets

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

    Pros

    Since it's a large reputable company, you never have to worry about job security. Work-life balance is also great, as I work regular 40 hour weeks, no more and no less. Compensation is on par with other technology companies in the same class, so very average. There isn't really anything special about Northrop.

    Cons

    I'm a young professional recently removed from college, so the biggest con is the company culture. The average employee age is probably the same as my parents, and the culture is old-fashioned. Don't expect employee events like Tequila Fridays or any other exciting company-sponsored things.
