    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company has good values and policies. Good working environment, flexible schedule, competitive pay, best coworkers.

    Cons

    Poor middle management, bottom managers are great, and director and above are great, but middle managers are more of the title chasers and "company men". D&I struggles. People are people anywhere you go, but much less politics than many companies.

    Advice to Management

    Know who you are promoting, beyond just what they want you to see.
