Northrop has done right by me, they have taken an interest in my continued education and training. I like it here.

I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I am working with high end systems, current programs and standards, supporting customers who have very high expectations. I am super pleased with how hands on, and challenging this position is.
I also know that my job is somewhat portable, if I need to move for some reason, or if I want a change of pace, I can look for another Northrop job, and transfer rather than go job hunting and deal with the uncertainty of searching for a new position.

Cons

I really can't think of anything that I would call a con, unless you are a person who does not like working for a large corporation. In which case Northrop would definitely not be for you. But if that is not a deal breaker, then I highly recommend working here.

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

    Pros

    *Great environment for those who like loose management (not the case 100% of the time though)
    *Good benefits (Education reimbursement, 401K, health, etc)
    *The company as a whole is great - fantastic CEO
    *Good facilities
    *Many opportunities to learn from knowledgeable people
    *Fascinating work

    Cons

    *Very, very little accountability; those who were a detriment to the company weren't dealt with very well or at all
    *Very little acknowledgement for those who performed in an outstanding manner. Generally in the form of "Lets just make everyone feel good" rather than pointing out stellar contributors
    *Multiple reductions in force over the last couple of years, >50% downsizing in my division
    *Poor communication between management and the production floor
    *Poor design for manufacturing
    *Poor designs in general many times
    *Military contract dependant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't even being to stress how important communication is... all the way down the line.
