Competitive culture in a tight, 'restricted customer' envirenmont
Administrative support and Development Testing (Current Employee), Northern VirginiaJuly 1, 2015
Pros: Solid traditional benefits, company size when work begins to dry up at one location
Cons: worke in the DC area is becoming more 'iffy' as the Government programs become leaner and meaner
Excellent brand recognition for defense hardware which carries over into the sotware engineering/SETA roles prevalent in Northern Virginia. Current budget slashing has taken much of the fun/satisfaction out of the workplace, however.

Program Management Slow to Act Unless Problem Proceived As Risk
RF Microwave Hardware Design Engineer IV (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDJune 29, 2015
Pros: Diversity of Work, Great People in general, Solid Benefits, and Flexible Work Hours
Cons: Management is inept at resolving staffing issues or aiding employees in succession planning
In general, technical staffing and succession planning has been a huge issue on many established programs. A rash of employees leaving the company and retirements over the past few years coupled with slow hiring rates has left many engineering skill set gaps and program headcount shortages across the board. Retention rates have dropped among new hires. Program management and functional front-line managers handle staffing very poorly and often ignore the problem until their EV spreadsheets and schedule milestones are deep in the red. The headcount shortages often leave experienced engineers stretched very thin and projects perpetually behind schedule. Program management also has a hard time understanding that complex tasks requiring unique skill sets cannot be filled with new hires or interns without significant training which is often not budgeted for. Compounding this problem is that contract proposals are written without concern for staffing or skillset availability/development. There is a noticeable lack of communication between program management from different functional areas until serious staffing conflicts arise.

Dynamic, demanding work environment
Secretary Admin Senior (Former Employee), Hawthorne, CAJune 26, 2015
Pros: Great benefits: insurance, vacation, great people
Cons: Stress and moved from Anaheim to Hawthorne (which is why I left and went to McDonnell Douglas)
Northrop Corporation (before Northrop Grumman) was my favorite company I ever worked for....started in 1979 working on the proposal phase of the U.S. Army Mast Mounted Sight (MMS) program for the program manager and staff. Very dynamic work environment due to the initiation and winning of the program. Worked as a subcontractor to McDonnell Douglas (which I later started working for in November 1990). Great, great management and co-workers. Enjoyed the excitement and thrill of each day. Was my first aerospace experience.

Access Control Specialist
Access Control Specialist (Former Employee), Wahiawā, HIJune 18, 2015
Pros: Easy work
Cons: Northrop eventually lost the contract for my job and it was taken over by less well run companies
My job was pretty boring, but Northrop Grumman treated its employees well. For security reasons I cannot describe the actual work that I did. However, there were other people I worked with that did the exact same job that I did, and it was easy to see that they did not have the same employee/employer relationship as my fellow northrop employees did.

Great company but many managers of retirement age will not retire making growth difficult. Great work-life balance, never have to take your work home with you.

They are good, but employees are just numbers
Electronic Technician III (Former Employee), Newport News, VAJune 18, 2015
Pros: well known
Cons: they cut what they can to make more money
They really just look at the numbers and how they can cut things to make an extra buck, at least that is how it looks to me. They could have stayed on my contract for another 2 months and transitioned to another company but they got greedy, from what I hear.

Program Manager (Current Employee), Washington, DCJune 12, 2015
I always felt Northrop had my back and provided a wide variety of experiences to hone my skills. I also found this to be a stable contract and I stayed for 4 years total.

My program manager was excellent and represented the contractors well.

Also, I felt Northrop provided many benefits. When a family member passed away, Northrop gave me paid leave to grieve.
