    Meh. It's ok, if you like being a tiny cog in a huge wheel.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than an year)


    The people are super nice. Especially if you're a new grad, you can easily make tons of friends here. But even if you're not, everyone I ever met at NGC was extremely friendly.

    It is very hard to get fired. You literally have to punch someone. Though I did hear about a year after I left there was a round of layoffs. They didn't sound horribly bad though.

    There are some interesting projects, I think. With all the clearances, it can be hard to tell! You have to get on the right project.

    If you are a huge superstar, you have the opportunity to rise to the top of a gigantic corporation, which would be cool.

    Even though there are a ton of cons for NGC Rolling Meadows, I still have a soft spot in my heart for it. It was kind of like boot camp for the real world. Like really painful Navy SEAL bootcamp, but still. Somehow I can't bring myself to give it only 1 star.


    The way I was treated at my Rolling Meadows job was kind of insulting. My degree is in EE at the University of Illinois. I spent the bulk of my 2 years there soldering tiny parts on boards, moving lab equipment around, and getting other people's mail (yeah, really). It was fine to be doing that stuff for the first 6 months, but after that, yeah. Got a lil ridiculous. By the time I decided to leave, I was worried that I couldn't find another job in EE because NGC hadn't given me any marketable skills - and in fact I ended up switching to a different career altogether. I really should have left after a year... chalk it up to inexperience.

    It is definitely still the Old Boys Club there. I'm a woman, and I personally experienced 2 incedents of sexual harrassment during my time there. I didn't report them - again with the inexperience.

    People who work there fall into mostly 2 categories. 1) New grads who don't know any better. They're fresh out of college and happy just to have a job, even though they are getting paid peanuts and have 0 extra benefits to show for it. 99% of them eventually figure it out and move on before their 5 year anniversary (like me). 2) Lazy people (aka people who had kids before figuring out that this job sucks). These people don't have the energy to look for a new job. They just want to cash that paycheck each week and not think about it. These are the people who will stand in the lab talking to you for 45 minutes, or surf the web for 2 hours each day.

    Finally, the benefits SUCKED! The pay was way below average for my skill level and the location. The office was boring as all heck - cubical land with no windows and 0 extra effort put into making it look nice. You can't have cool tech gadgets like iPhones or anything if you work in a secured area. There were no windows anywhere. Part of the reason I left was, one day I pictured myself 20 years down the line at NGC sitting in a windowless room soldering tiny parts, and just realized, this was no way to live!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hah, not like anyone will actually listen to me. But, how about, instead of bulk-hiring 1000 new grads each year, do a more careful interview process and only hire 200, and pay them a bit more? You could save money and spend it on improving the office environment and culture a little bit. Also, cull the herd. Get rid of the people who are not performing so that the ones who are can feel more like they are part of an elite group and less like a cog in a wheel. Finally, you may think you have curbed the sexual harrassment problem, but you haven't.
