I have been working at Northrop Grumman

Pros

There are usually a lot of positions at NGIT, with 99% of them working for the Air Force. There were a lot of fine people working there; made some lasting relationships.

Cons

The benefits absolutely suck. First of all, they take quite a bit out of your paycheck every month. Secondly, the coverage is not that great. They will only pay up to 90% of prescription medications, which is fine when the medication cost $50.00. What about when the medication cost thousands of dollars.

Management usually consist of former Air Force officers that retire and then "cross the fence". Therefore, there's quite a bit of a "good ole boy" system with regards to advancement and opportunity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wouldn't have the faintest idea.

    A great place to start, but be aggressive about advancing.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    The compensation wasn't the greatest, but you couldn't find a better group of people to work with. Workplace environment is designed to give you freedom when you work and most of the managers would allow side projects as long as they had some application to the program at hand.

    Cons

    Not a lot of motivation for career advancement. The pay is competitive, but raises are few and far between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Like most place there are the good managers and the bad ones; luckily the good out weighed the bad.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    The work is entertaining and problems are novel. The employment is very stable. There are great people to learn from while on the job. there is a great sense of pride in the quality of the work that is done at Newport News Shipyard.

    Cons

    Very poor compensation and no opportunity to distiguish yourself for upward movement. Ambition for promotion is frowned upon. If you do NOT work at the Newport News Shipyard, you do not exsist in the company. HR, Management, and all product support/production staff do not know there is anything beyond Hampton Roads, VA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously reconsider your compensation package and hiring criteria for new engineers out of college. Nothing in this company's compensation or career growth attracts or retains motivated young engineers.
