    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.

    Pros

    Comparing to most employers, NG has a very good benefit package, which includes two pension plans. Vacation days start from 17 and employees gain 1 additional day every two years.

    Cons

    Big overhead, of course. This is a large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce overhead
