    Pros

    flexible hours, decent pay, decent benefits. The work is challenging and for the most part the people are nice.

    Cons

    government contracts, causes worries whether you'll be covered. Every year NGC seems to normalize the benefits to match competitors. For instance, taking away a holiday because another company offers it.

    Advice to Management

    communicate better

    Decent place to start a career, but get out before you find yourself in the fast lane to nowhere.

    Pros

    Northrop often actively recruits new/recent college grads, as well as others who are early in their careers. Their strategy is more or less designed to acquire less experienced, but promising talent and coach them up within the Northrop culture. For someone who is interested in the defense sector and/or looking to start their career with a recognizable organization, it could be the right opportunity at the right time.

    Cons

    One of the other reasons Northrop prefers to recruit candidates early in their career is to control labor costs. To the corporation, lower wages mean more competitive bids - from a cost standpoint, anyway. It also means there's a good chance you'll find yourself on a project stacked with relatively inexperienced resources, often (not always) resulting in a well intended but ill executed solution. The longer one remains at the company, the more their skills reflect the Northrop way, and the more they risk falling out of touch with the broader industry. Finally, the longer one stays on, the more their compensation falls behind the market average.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your talent more effectively. Don't stifle them in Northrop bureaucracy. Invest in their skills, develop their careers, and compensate them well. They'll be worth more to you in the long run versus another line item on a low cost labor ledger assembled for the next bid.
