I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Innovative ideas and forward thinking.
Ethically centered.
Good pay.

Cons

Very top heavy in management. Not a good fit for NNS as it is a very different niche. Made IT changes without regard to the effect on all processes and departments.

Advice to Management

Due diligence to cause & effect before implementing company wide IT changes

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

    Pros

    Modern work environment. At least in the shipbuilding sector, the work was very stable. If a person put effort into their job, it was easy to stand out.

    Cons

    I did not feel that the pay was adequate. Most engineers had an easy time leaving for a raise if they were willing to move. There was very little need for advanced education.

    Advice to Management

    Work to close the pay gap. Provide better opportunities and incentives to engineers with advanced educations and the desire to accelerate fast.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The travel opportunities have been fantastic, I have great insurance at a good price, and I get to work with some truly talented people everyday. I also have a flexible work schedule, so I can shift my hours around as needed to accommodate outside activities.

    Cons

    Despite excellent performance reviews, it can be difficult to advance here. This is based on both my own experience as well as watching several others get frustrated and eventually leave the company for large pay increases and better work environments.

    Advice to Management

    After the first year or two, stop being obsessed with whether someone has a certain degree or certification and focus more on the work they are doing and the customer satisfaction that results.
