Good company to work for if you are blessed with a good management chain.

I have been working at Northrop Grumman

Pros

I work in a relaxed atmosphere.

Cons

Like all other companies, employees are paying more for health care coverage. The long-term employees who are maxed out on vacation recently lost a day of vacation (25 days to 24 days) and were told that it was a good thing. New people get less pension benefits. You could be a number unless you purposely stand out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Pay more of the health care dollars. 2.Consolidate the many company networks into one well working network. 3. I would perfer having a local help-desk person.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    The flexability to start new programs, if a need can be shown. A flexable work schedule that spans the pay period. I am recognized by management and peers for the effort I put forth. The ability to move around to different jobs within the company has become much improved. It used to be that unless you were asked to apply for a job, you didn't dare apply. Failure to follow this unwritten rule was cause to be "blackballed"and the offender's career was over.

    Cons

    The environment of the shipyard is hard. The good-old-boy network is slowly leaving, but not quick enough. When ther is a problem, there is often more finger pointing, than a desire to find the root cause. This has changed somewhat, but its still prevelant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Responsibility should be upheld where responsibility is given.

    NGIT is a strong, stable company that works hard to remain competitive and retain its employees.

    Pros

    They offer a great benefits package including 401K with employee match, pension, health insuarance choices, dental insurance, vision plan, paid vacation and floating holoidays and education assistance. Salaries seem competetive. Decent entry level salary and the company works hard to retain new employees by offering mentoring programs and other networking events/groups. It is also a solid, stable and respectable employer. The government contracting industry is a safe industry to be in right now in terms of job stability, especially in the IT field. Regardless of what administration takes office there will continue to be a strong demand for IT government contracts and NGIT is prepared to meet that need.

    Cons

    What is probably the biggest downside of working at northrop grumman is being 1 of 130,000 employees. The company is absolutely huge, and spans across many states, and some countries. This massive size is largely the result of a large series of mergers and aquisitions of smaller companies. At times this creates a disunity between workgroups within the same company, but the upside is that the company has already made great strides to unite the company as one by streamlining organizations and processes. Another downside is that at much of northrop, the government is the customer, and this at times creates more work and more beaurocracy to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct surveys to get employee feedback about how policies and procedures are affecting day to day work. What works in one part of the company may not work everywhere.
