I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Access to other technology leaders to exchange and develop new technologies. Very good resource pool for developing aerospace optics to tap from. Pay was more than competitive.

Cons

Health care benefits were subpar to broader industry and especially so compared to other industries. Getting papers and presentations approved for publication can be extremely frustrating and time consuming. In these lean times for government spending, don't expect there to be a lot of growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expand beyond being strong dependence on government contracts.
