I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Large company with MANY benefits

Cons

Contractual work. If the company doesnt get a contract, you don't get to work... and they don't pay you if you don't work.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time

    Pros

    a lot of good, smart people to work with; medical benefits are above average; self-paced (many people choose to take advantage of this)

    Cons

    below average salary (once you realize this it's too late); benefits are receding (pension, then paid time off, then pension again; i hear tuition is next); ceo bush cares solely about stakeholders (keep up the record sales but keep down the costs of labor [salary capped at 2.5% company wide and 3 layoffs of ~1500 employees in past 2 years]); functional managers do not promote or encourage growth; electronic systems (es) division losing contracts by the minute (another layoff soon?); even if you obtain an advanced college degree or receive a promotion (more responsibility) your home-room and salary stays the same until an unknown period of the calendar year (near the end).

    Advice to Management

    your employees are your most valuable assets - not your stakeholders. is it any wonder that you've lost so much of your talent that you have difficulty keeping your contracts - let alone winning new contracts? everyone thinks your third-party 'engagement surveys' are a load of crap - no, no one has a best friend at work (<-- 1 of the bizarre questions asked in the survey). competitive salary = happy employees = keep talented employees = keep current contracts and win future contracts.
