Pros: Always pushing the envelope, growing, learning
Cons: Short on mentoring, bonus/annual review system recently became more challenging
This has been a unique experience, as I have worked at the USMC and Aerospace divisions - with and without direct supervision. I have been pushed to my limits - and maybe beyond on occasion. This company is definitely for someone who does not want to "rest on their laurels". There will be new challenges every day - and new expectations to fill (sometimes with no one having gone before you to show the way). It is exciting and challenging, stressful and frightening - but ultimately, I believe, worth it. The pay and benefits are competitive, but the review/bonus system needs some help - I understand that is a work in progress. There are some of the greatest scientific/mathematical/engineering geniuses at work here at Northrop. It is sometimes difficult to get out of meetings, and get to work, which can be frustrating.
