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

    Pros

    Most positions are on a 9/80 schedule, which will give you every other Friday off in exchange for an extra hour Mon-Thurs. Everyone is allowed to express their opinions. Highly, highly ethical organization (may be a result of DCMA auditors always being around, but whatever the reason, if you have integrity, this is the place for you). You often get to work on things you only get to read about. Great work/life balance overall... occasionally a project may temporarily disrupt this, but even then, in at least some instances the company will provide straight overtime even though you are salaried.

    Cons

    HR is the biggest issue here. They take the job requisitions very literally, and so you often have people who are only qualified on paper in a role they have no business being in, while talent has to sit around until they have enough years to qualify for a given role. Merit based bonuses for lower level staff are extremely difficult to get, although surprisingly high (for non-sales folks) if you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix your HR, pronto. They know nothing about the programs, nor do they know the existing employees line managers have often worked with and spotted potential in, so they reject your real talent, which hurts the project when the wrong person is in the job and may eventually drive away the talent because they don't want to wait 6 years to get promoted.
