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

    Pros

    Most people are truly focused on doing what is right for the customer and the company. Work culture is generally good. Most employees are at least generally competent. Some are truly outstanding.

    Cons

    For at least the last 7 years or so, the company has been so focused on getting more females and African Americans into the upper management ranks (director level) that there has been rampant discrimination against white males. This is an open secret that all management employees that have been at the company for at least 5 years can give many, many examples. White males are consistently told they need to check another box or two from an experience perspective even when the selected candidates don't check the boxes themselves. As a result, the competency level at the director and vice president level has plummeted. The company isn't anywhere nearly as well managed as it was 5-10 years ago.

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

    Pros

    The work/life balance is nice. It's a 9/80 work schedule so every other friday off

    Cons

    They are so far behind with technology and software that it's difficult to do any real analysis. You will spend most of your time just inputting data into excel. They say they care about career growth but nothing they've done so far has shown that.
