I have been working at Northrop Grumman

Pros

Pay
What was flexible work time in HR
Lower and mid management are helpful and understanding
Large company with diverse people (for engineer types that is)
Unique work

Cons

Upper management not developing consensus, most actions and policies are all "pushed down" to us.
"Challenge up, support down" does not really seem to be practiced in many areas re: project execution, flexible work, telework, general communication styles.
Losing telework
Engineer types

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop consensus with bonafide employee committees
End nepotism of the good ol buddy kind
Try that one show, Undercover boss out at Northrop. Boy, you might be surprised.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    strong benefit package, flexible hours, consistent feedback, tuition disbursement, and alot of other things i could mention if i wanted to.

    Cons

    small world hard to see what other parts of the sector or NG as a whole due to the nature of many programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    a flatter management structure would probably benefit transparency from the grunts up the chain and allow for more cross pollination.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Great location
    More laid back than one would initially assume for a defense contractor
    Friendly people
    Shared office with a highly experienced coworker when starting out
    Great Pay

    Cons

    Not much manager feedback on completed work
    Training was impersonal and short
    Sometimes traffic in the Baltimore area can be awful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more available and have more feedback for new employees on their first few projects to keep them interested and make them feel like they're doing a good job. Don't just leave them hanging and assuming their work is correct.
