    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people - best team I've worked with in a long time.
    Work life balance - the 9/80 schedule is brilliant, plus there is the capacity to work from home if you need to. Great locations and offices.
    And my manager. Definitely in the grand final of best ever.
    The vision - they definitely are always looking up and out. I love that.

    Cons

    Branching off from a US company causes some teething problems with Australian processes.
    Slow at times - approval from the USA - see above re developing processes. But that is absolutely not out of the ordinary for a big company.

    Advice to Management

    Get the little things right - processes, payments, paperwork etc., and the big things will follow.

    Interview

    It was a 30 minute phone call with two people who worked within the department. They started by asking me questions and then I got a run-down of the position and the department. I was then able to ask my own questions.
