    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Huge company creates the ability to change jobs and job fields many times and never have to leave company. Encourages work life balance, embraces knowledge growth and sharing, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Huge company causes lack of individual contribution acknowledgement, lack if ability to address personnel issues and problem people aren't gotten rid of or corrected in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Require ongoing manager training (all levels). Disconnects and disfunction happen when people are put in Management roles that have no or poor people skills. Incentivise good managers, reassign poor ones. Insider threat, mistakes, poor work product quality, high employee turnover, is much more likely in poorly managed organizations.

        Pros

        Flexibility, Early Career Development, Longevity, you work hard and do your job and this place will reward you over time.

        Cons

        Ever-changing leadership, hard to get promoted, middle-aged employees need a program similar to Pathways.

        Advice to Management

        Expand NG Pathways to encompass Level 3s, where appropriate. Allow employees who predate the PDP program to be considered for the NG Pathways program. ES is a profit, not a cost. Doesn’t matter how many recruits are 5 stars, what matters is how many recruits are developed into 5 stars. Take care of your own and NG will take care of you.
