I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time for 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.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment; motivated co-workers; excellent pay and outstanding benefits. I thoroughly enjoyed my job while there.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, like all government contractors, the work comes and goes with the whims of the contract. Overturn in personnel is high, and is not unusual for any defense contractor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop contracts outside the government to sustain long term employees.
