Pros: paid weekly
Cons: some management didnt need the position
I worked for Northrop Grumman when they owned a shipyard in Newport News Virginia. Some of the foremans and general foremans and even hr personnel needed to be forced to retire or needed to be fired but all in all it was a good place to work with many pay raises and paid weekly.

Good UAV Product Base but Old Culture of Design, Analysis, and Management
Project / Stress Engineer (Current Employee), San Diego, CA – April 8, 2014
Cons: old culture trying to compete in a new world
Significant cost cutting has been done over the last two years. That has saved some programs but has also cut salaries, bonuses, and the tools we work with to do our jobs. Northrop lacks any good rotation programs for the engineers or for any good MBAs that could turn around an old culture. Management is overpaid and you just get in line with everyone – more... else for a promotion which only comes once you are at the high end of their experience charts. – less
