Pros

Northrop works to keep people employed, moving them to different programs when current programs wrap up.

Cons

Keeping your salary advancing requires that one only stays there for 3-4 years max before moving to a different company. Same as all aerospace companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time planning and tracking detail-level work. Do it carefully, and have it done by someone who really knows the task, not just whoever you can get a team to give up.

    Northrop Grumman Engineering Internship Review

    Pros

    Northrop spends a lot of time and money on their internship program. They facilitate camaraderie among interns by providing numerous speaker/lunch/travel opportunities . If you are ambitious and hardworking, you can land a meaningful project worth writing about on your resume. Overall, I had a great experience at Northrop. Every other Friday is off and the hourly wage is very competitive!

    Cons

    The company is slow and stogy. If you do not align ideologically with the defense industry, you may find yourself in an uncomfortable position. Your internship experience is highly contingent upon your managers enthusiasm for the program. First weeks can be slow... but it takes initiative to make your experience worthwhile!

    Pros

    health benefits were very good and the company has on site health clinics every 6 months or so. Cholesterol and blood pressure screening for free.

    Cons

    Not too green thinking or eco friendly, insisted on using fluorscent bulbs and when asked if we could turn them off overhead they would not allow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be proactive in bringing back employees after contract ends. Be more up front about contract end dates and not secretive. Use more telecommuting, people traveled great distance to come to work and were tired after a horrendous commute in DC area. Make use of NG buildings close to the employees home instead of having them travel across town and pass an NG building on their block.
