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

    Pros

    Good cafeteria, big parking lot.

    Cons

    My job was to roll a rock up a hill in the morning and roll the same rock down at night. The root cause of the problem is a leadership vacuum. Northrop Grumman brought its junior varsity management team to Richmond. Three months was all I could take. If you're interested in developing a career in engineering, stay away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more for good managers and get rid of the people who were no good at IT and decided they wanted to take on a leadership role. Give them a rock to roll around; that's something they can handle.
