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

      Pros

      9/80 or flex schedule helps with commuting. Great benefits and work-life balance. The managers at this location express a vested interest in their employee's happiness.

      Cons

      None I can think of at this time.

      Approves of CEO

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

      Pros

      The people - best team I've worked with in a long time. Work life balance - the 9/80 schedule is brilliant, plus there is the capacity to work from home if you need to. Great locations and offices. And my manager. Definitely in the grand final of best ever. The vision - they definitely are always looking up and out. I love that.

      Cons

      Branching off from a US company causes some teething problems with Australian processes. Slow at times - approval from the USA - see above re developing processes. But that is absolutely not out of the ordinary for a big company.

      Advice to Management

      Get the little things right - processes, payments, paperwork etc., and the big things will follow.

      I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Future business outlook looks promising! 9/80 flex schedule is great for work life balance.

      Cons

      Pays 10-20% less than other Defense Contractors.

      Advice to Management

      Give better incentives for the worker bees! They are the ones that will make the programs a success! Too much turmoil with upper management! I’m so happy I left!

      I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      9/80 schedule; many friendly people in non-mgmt roles

      Cons

      Toxic environment (created mostly by mgmt); very complacent employees who complain (some of it is warranted due to poor mgmt), but have no intentions of learning new skills or moving on to better opportunities

      Advice to Management

      Vet your mgmt hires more thoroughly - make sure they actually know the subject matter they will manage; stop making it so difficult for process improvements to be made (remove unnecessary red tape); talk to ALL of your staff - not just to the exempt level; stop showing favoritism and allow ALL employees to have a chance at succeeding; judge employees based on what YOU know of them and not what someone else told you about...

        company gives all the titles and money to old guys who know nothing. the rest need to get in line and prepare to bail them out. appreciation? forget about it. These guys are thick skinned

        Advice to Management

        if you want to find someone to do your job, u need to pay more and learn how to say thank you.
