    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The actual engineering group is a nice group of people.

    Cons

    The Newport office is the mistreated stepchild of Northrop, all the bureaucracy of a big company, none of the benefits. The management is terrible and just biding their time till they can retire. The company in general can't figure out what direction they want to go. They reorganize every couple of years, fire some upper management, then do it again a couple years later before they even have time to change anything.

    Advice to Management

    Just close the Newport office already and start figuring out why you keep losing market share. I'll tell you one thing, it's not because you are spending money re investing in people or technology, because you don't.
