Hardware Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) –  Boulder, COAugust 28, 2016
The Management was great until the contract ended, they were very vague about whether people would keep their positions or be let go. Day to day was laid back and satisfying.

Frequent Changes in Organizational Structure and Management
Manager, Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP) (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDAugust 26, 2016
The company is evolving. In the last 5-7 years there has been a great deal of change organizationally. The management structure is constantly in flux. There are many efforts regarding Engagement and Inclusion that despite concerted, very focused attention by management don't seem to have much traction. The great thing about working at this company is that despite the uncertain environment and distrust of a management, employees are dedicated and committed to the mission.
Pros
Committed and very hard working employees
Cons
Instability

Northrop Ruined This Location
Senior Engineer (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHAugust 21, 2016
Was once a good place to work. Northrop reduced or eliminated benefits. Merit increases are poor, usually 1.5 % if that. Cutthroat environment.
Pros
Very few any more
Cons
See Review, it has degenerated severely in the last 5 years.

Northrop Grumman Review
Information Security Engineer (Current Employee) –  Melbourne flAugust 16, 2016
The job is difficult and you really need to know your stuff because it is a very cut throat environment. When in a meeting or making a decision, you need to be able to give a response to answer a question and be 100% confident that its the right course of action because if it isn't, you very well might be dispensable and replaced within the next 48 hours. Very rewarding for those who go above and beyond.
Pros
Flexible hours, work from home (on occasion), pay, environment
Cons
Gossip and rumors like any other job

Aircraft Structures Mechanic F­35 Program (Current Employee) –  Palmdale, CAAugust 14, 2016
They lack the ability to properly train employees. They tend to look too much at your title and pay to determine if you can do a job vs. the actual talent. This company as a lot of work to do internally.
