    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is forward thinking, diverse, and of course technically advanced. A four-fold increase in stock price over the past few years indicates strong leadership at the top echelons. There is a lot of opportunity within the company to grow careers and advance your education.

    Cons

    Many folks do not see what NGC brings to the table as far as advancing technology. The technology used in developing products often has application value in non-defense products. Being associated with the military industry often sheds a dim light on an outstanding company

    Advice to Management

    Streamline processes. Years and years of processes have taken away agility

    Pros

    Innovative, advanced technologies, great mission, plenty of opportunity to grow a career

    Cons

    Much of the amazing work done at NG can't be discussed or even highlighted due to the restricted nature of many programs. The Pay for Performance can be discouraging for some employees.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the Pay for Performance to include a larger portion of employees to be bonus eligible.

    Pros

    Northrop really cares about employee engagement, ethics, efficiency. I actually feel like the company as a whole cares.

    Cons

    Career advancement can be a bit stove-piped or limited if you are in a functional role, and particularly if you are not on a program/contract (oh government contracting life!). Not so if you are an engineer-- if you are an engineer, you are golden.
