Former Employee - Project Manager in Bethpage, NY (US)

I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Family atmosphere, Working with some of the smartest people in the world. Opportunity to learn new things and be on the cutting edge of technology and defense.

Cons

No opportunity to move up, very, very slow promotions. If the government pulls funding the program you are on can be cut at anytime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are losing middle carereer professionals because you pay the older non productive professional for to long and you under pay the lower career professioanls because they are expendable. Spend more time and effort on the middle career professionals, this is your future.
