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

Pros

I retired recently after almost 35 years. I worked the entire time at Newport News Shipbuilding which NG spun off as a separate corporation. Working at NNS allowed me to have multiple careers in various disciplines while remaining in one location while making above average salary and benefits. Your potential is only limited by the restraints you place on yourself. NG and NNS were always open to trying a different route if you were not having success on your current path. You just had to ask and support your rationale for the change.

Cons

Promotion above the supervisor and manager level are limited simply due to fewer available high level positions. If you have your sights set on being a Director, Vice President or CEO, your odds become very slim after age 35 unless you have become one of the "chosen few". If you have to ask yourself whether you are or aren't, then you aren't.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide a larger non-managerial advancement path for those not able to reach senior management positions. You need more "fellow" positions.

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

    Pros

    People are helpful in acquainting new hires with current projects. IT support is better than average (still somewhat clunky as with any megacorp). Workspace is comfortable and I have access to everything I need to do my job.

    Cons

    Cubicles. Even the management gets cubes, which makes for an egalitarian environment, but I would preferred shared offices (2 or so to a room, with a door you can close when you feel like it).
