    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    With the continuous change of leadership and business model there is opportunity for people with certain skills to gain promotion and recognition. The people here are great to work with. Good place to learn and gain experience.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring of the organisation and business model is an issue. People are put in roles where they are not equiped for success. Once you have broadened your expereince and skills there is not a definitive next career step. Many skilled people have left over the years who would have been fantastic employees to keep.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    Strong technical and programme management ethos. When UK management had primacy, NGIT had a capable, competent and cohesive team . Good to gain first job experience of a Fortune 100, multi-national.

    Cons

    US centric view on market not aligned to european business ITAR restrictions place huge difficulty on pulling product though from US. UK staff sometimes treated as "third country nationals"

    Former Employee - Senior Manufacturing Engineer in Clearfield, UT

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

    Pros

    Interesting, high rate work where one will always be busy. One will work with cutting edge tech in which the company is pushing the bounds of the aerospace field.
