    I have been working at Northrop Grumman (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I work with a great group of people; our on-site management promotes work-life balance; compensation plan is OK, but it keeps getting whittled down... medical and dental coverage costs have gone up considerably in the last few years, salary increases are limited and usually occur only as annual bump-ups of about 2%.

    Cons

    Upper management verbally promotes career advancement opportunities, but I have applied to numerous internal opportunities in an effort to advance, to no avail. I have received "Constantly Exceeds Expectations" ratings every year I have worked for the company; I completed the NG Technical Professional Mentorship Program; I take on challenges outside my job description, at no additional pay/compensation... Career advancement internal to the company is not reality.

    New employees no longer qualify for Retirement Account Contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Help current employees to find career advancement opportunities, or they will leave.

    Pros

    Great company to work for!

    Cons

    Nepotism, to many friend and high school friends, family members, boyfriends & girfriends working in the same sector

    Advice to Management

    Before putting an individual into a managerial position or even a supervisory position management needs to make sure the individual has the ability to be in either one of the positions and not just put an individual in a position because they do a good job. Management needs to make sure the individual has leadership ability and be able to lead by example and lead from the front. Upper management also needs to make whenever appointing an individual in a managerial position they need to make sure that individual is capable of performing the job, stay away from nepotism, and being friends with the people that work for him or her.
