Northrop has done right by me, they have taken an interest in my continued education and training. I like it here.

I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than a year)

Pros

I am working with high end systems, current programs and standards, supporting customers who have very high expectations. I am super pleased with how hands on, and challenging this position is.
I also know that my job is somewhat portable, if I need to move for some reason, or if I want a change of pace, I can look for another Northrop job, and transfer rather than go job hunting and deal with the uncertainty of searching for a new position.

Cons

I really can't think of anything that I would call a con, unless you are a person who does not like working for a large corporation. In which case Northrop would definitely not be for you. But if that is not a deal breaker, then I highly recommend working here.

    Pros

    Your work revolves around state of the art aerospace/defense projects. Access to a laboratory environment. Programs are very stable and can offer a long and rewarding assignment.

    Cons

    Pay is significantly lower than software engineers make in commercial industries. Like most defense contractors, Northrop Grumman seems to be ~10 years behind the trend when it comes to process, technology, and management style. Programs can be top heavy, with layers of management and overrun with stubborn "senior" engineers who refuse to retire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove a layer of management from both the project and functional organizations. Identify top performing talent and pay them to stay.
