    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Project managers in my groups were open to suggestions, and were eager to have me contribute to their projects.

    Cons

    There is an immense amount of paperwork/regulations that impair worker efficiency. This is probably an inevitable part of working at a defense company.
    The upper level managers (not the project managers) have great difficulty making up their minds once a project is embarked upon. This creates a lot of excess waste.

    Pros

    Northrop is a company with a great corporate culture. It's the kind of place that you can build a career that will last until retirement. At Northrop you can expect to work with highly educated and qualified people on challenging projects.

    Cons

    Things happen slowly at large corporations and are usually set in stone - not a negative about Northrop specifically.
