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

    Pros

    Good hours (9/80) is great, good salary, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Extremely underwhelming. Definition of technical work is almost laughable. Frequent checking the clock and praying for more technical things to do. Worried my skills as an engineer with atrophy without enough use.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, probably not your fault because of the nature of the business, but you have to stimulate your employees to keep retention.
