    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits and pay. Long time employees extremely knowledgeable and good mentors. GREAT work life balance and good program level management.

    Cons

    High turn over rate. Upper corporate management tends to be the source of a lot of the problems. Staffing issues result in project delays and quarterly work reallocation. Promotion process is directly tied in with hiring process, so getting a promotion involves applying for the job you are already doing. As well as heavier upper management oversight. Bigger programs get more priority for promoting and hiring staff, so it's often easier to jump to another program to get a promotion. This results in much of the talent being siphoned away from smaller programs.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, offset hours, paid hourly rate for O/T (salary employee), good work life balance, 9/80 schedule (everyother Friday off), sick/pto same pool, 10 annually set holidays off (6 days for x-mas/new years)

    Cons

    lots of bureaucracy, for every hour of actual process improvement work there is 2 or 3 of jumping through hoops, very inefficient and expensive labor makes things cheaper to outsource which shouldn't be, management doesn't pre setup your P/C so you spend the first 2-3 weeks getting access to programs and getting them installed before you can do any actual work.
