I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Worked with a lot of cool technology and got a lot of good hands on learning experience. Benefits were really great.

Cons

seems to have cycles of hiring and layoffs. Promotions and pay increase process seem to be heavily weighted on who you are friends with. I was told I had a great year but only so many people can be promoted so maybe next year...for a few years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

reward and try to hold on to the good new hires

    Pros

    Decent salary.

    Moving most Bethpage jobs out of state in the next year.
    Business is very dependent on government budget issues.

  2.  

    Company goes all out when they really want to hire you. Relocation package included. Generous travel reimbursement.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This company has a lot of contracts with the DOD and are always looking to create new ones. It is a company whose upper management knows how to keep the work ($$$) coming. They plan well in advance to assure a successful future. The pay is pretty good and they provide training to assure your success on the job. A very well organized system. Best experience with a company so far.

    Cons

    The only cons is that a lot of the work may be boring paperwork and following strict procedures, but that is the price to preserve our country's vital national security interests secure. Very strict with breaks and to keep everyone very efficient they do not allow internet access except for travel maps. Obviously this restriction keeps many employees from being fired for improper use of the internet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change all the things that work so well.
