    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    Northrop Grumman is a good place to work because it is challenging, they are open to new ideas and using new technologies. There are always new projects coming up and I'm given freedom to explore and invent.

    Cons

    NGC doesn't pay very well and the benefits are mediocre. I have worked on several projects that have saved or made thousands of dollars for the company. To date I've received zero kudos. The salary is well below average for the job performed, and my job title doesn't fit my responsibilities. No one has received a promotion here in 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees as part of the company, and give promotions and bonuses when deserved. And the "100 NG Reward Bucks" isn't a bonus, it's a fruit basket... my landlord doesn't accept fruit baskets. Come off some money and pay what we're worth.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    My direct supervisor is a true PEOPLE manager, Time on job is one major reason for continuing to work here. Location is close to my personal life. I love the WORK. I do learn new things.

    Cons

    Any extra effort or passion for the job is not rewarded.We are paid on a job definition rather than what we actually do. My actual work differs greatly from what my job "Title" states I do. We do not get raises. we as a group had gone 4 years without even a cost of living increase. We are on a "special" NG contract and do not get the benefites that all other NG employees get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like they are NOT replaceable, like they are needed. Half of why we work is money the other half is pride/satisfaction. both are equally important and NG is missing half.
