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

Pros

You are hired for your demonstrated ability to get the job done, company gives you significant room for professional autonomy which not giving you too much room to cause serious financial harm, I came into corporate world expecting to be "spoon fed" training on how to perform at the PM level and being a profit and loss entity individual training dollars are tight so you are left with a lot of OJT or self training.

Cons

Too little resources for new hires (managers) to get acquainted with the corporate's tools and procedures

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time

    Pros

    Northrop works to keep people employed, moving them to different programs when current programs wrap up.

    Cons

    Keeping your salary advancing requires that one only stays there for 3-4 years max before moving to a different company. Same as all aerospace companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time planning and tracking detail-level work. Do it carefully, and have it done by someone who really knows the task, not just whoever you can get a team to give up.

    Northrop Grumman Engineering Internship Review

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Northrop spends a lot of time and money on their internship program. They facilitate camaraderie among interns by providing numerous speaker/lunch/travel opportunities . If you are ambitious and hardworking, you can land a meaningful project worth writing about on your resume. Overall, I had a great experience at Northrop. Every other Friday is off and the hourly wage is very competitive!

    Cons

    The company is slow and stogy. If you do not align ideologically with the defense industry, you may find yourself in an uncomfortable position. Your internship experience is highly contingent upon your managers enthusiasm for the program. First weeks can be slow... but it takes initiative to make your experience worthwhile!
