    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    - Time off / flexible schedule -- flex time, telecommuting, 9/80 workweek, paid time off program
    - Opportunities for growth and learning - through new assignments, lateral transfers, and promotions
    - Sense of accomplishment and Contributing to the mission
    - Company makes an effort to communicate with employees/Most management seems to really care about the people

    Cons

    - Realignment(s) and changing leadership
    - Company effort to migrate all parts of Northrop to common systems and processes after all the acquisitions - it's the right thing to do and will be worth it once it's done, it's just painful in the meantime

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Slow down on all the change - it's hard to get the important things right when the company seems to always be moving to the next thing (systems, processes, etc) before the items before are accomplished or stable
    - Foster a culture for better work/life balance and more collaboration-- less top-down management

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    There is a lot of different types of projects. The amount of hours allows one to have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    Personal growth is hampered by stale movement. Employees get stuck on projects because its best for the project but not best for the company or the employee. It can get boring sometimes and it takes a lot to muster the excitement that you initially start with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of waste in the layer of management. It allows some to produce sub-standard levels of work due to the complexity.
