Pros: only the alternate work arrangement
Cons: poor management, horrible hr, bad benefits, low amount of vacation time, low amount of pto
Northrop Grumman is a horrible place to work. Most new employees only stay there 1-5 years. Some new employees even leave before reaching their first year! Abysmal Attrition Rate - Northrop Grumman cannot keep new talent.
The Management is poor and unfocused. Expect to be "chewed-up" by the Corporate Machine. Expect long hours (for which you remain unpaid) if you're a "Professional". Only the Union Workers (both skilled and un-skilled) are treated well. Non-Union employees and Professionals have no clout, and hence have poorer benefits, no real sick time (only a low amount of PTO), and no one to whom to voice their concerns. As noted, HR there does not help with complaints, and they only serve to make matters worse.
However, most of my co-workers were excellent, hard-working people. Conversely, most Management there is clueless and/or abusive.
Anyone with any real sense, ambition, motivation, or drive should STAY AWAY from Northrop Grumman. Staying there too long will only lead to the decline of your self-respect, exhaustive (and unpaid) work hours, depression, stress, and eventual sessions with a trained Therapist.
IF you're a member of a protected Union, you'll be treated much better. I must admit that. But, if you aren't part of a Union, STAY away...
Thank you for your time.
