    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    None, it doesn't even look good on the CV as it's an American company which no-one has heard of

    Cons

    Favouritism, inequality, discrimination...the list is endless. If you don't sit in the right cost centre - you will never get recognised/ awarded/ praised. If you do - you will be thrown unlimited pay increases and bonuses! Company ethics are poor, employees are demotivated and demoralised, no community or team spirit. Senior management believe they are above everyone else. The UK CEO will not even say hello if in... the office (which is rare anyway). You will be ignored until something is required from you - at which point you are summoned and will be spoken down to.

    Pros

    There is a lot of work to be done and

    Cons

    Office politics sometimes borders on the precinct of crime, bullying an employee to work is acceptable because you get paid. But stealing from an employee to reduce their performances and put unnecessary pressure is totally acceptable.

    Advice to Management

    In an era where Barclays has received record fines, Tesco’s accounting irregularities. All leads should put in a lot more effort to ensure that teams work together to avoid irregularities. If yourcompany has corporate and professional ethics please adhere to these ethics otherwise staff will be demolished and unproductive
