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


    Huge company creates the ability to change jobs and job fields many times and never have to leave company. Encourages work life balance, embraces knowledge growth and sharing, excellent benefits.


    Huge company causes lack of individual contribution acknowledgement, lack if ability to address personnel issues and problem people aren't gotten rid of or corrected in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Require ongoing manager training (all levels). Disconnects and disfunction happen when people are put in Management roles that have no or poor people skills. Incentivise good managers, reassign poor ones. Insider threat, mistakes, poor work product quality, high employee turnover, is much more likely in poorly managed organizations.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salford, North West England, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Salford, North West England, England) in September 2017.


    - No technical phone/pre-screening

    - 3 hour online coding test that was very 'academic' - poor test of actual ability (Codility)

    - Interviewers mostly read questions from a book. Weren't receptive to answers that didn't mention specific keywords.

    - Interview very one-sided. Two-way discussion attempts were shot down.

    - Role appeared different from the one I applied for.

    - Generally poor-feeling about culture and personalities (or lack of) in office.

    Invited back for further stages but declined.
