    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working as a Software Engineer in IS was a great experience. NG is very focused on helping employees build their skills and grow their career. Almost every single person that I met there was of impeccable character and was fantastic to work with. The projects were challenging and interesting and I got to work with a lot of emerging technologies. Their middle and upper management all came from an engineering background so they understood what was required to build something of value. Benefits were fantastic and the pay was also on-par with industry standards.

    Cons

    NG is a HUGE company so some things were a bit on the bureaucratic side of things but that is hardly avoidable with an organization of this size. There was a disconnect between business development and engineering. Sometimes it was hard to find others in the company at large who might be working on the same or similar projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the business development folks have a better understanding of what is going on with projects, especially R&D, so that those new capabilities can actually be deployed with customers.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules and a great work / life balance make this an excellent company to work for. Additionally, there was I level of job security with management always looking for coverage for employees as contract work ebbed and flowed.

    Cons

    While each employee should take it upon themselves to advocate for their own career, there could be some more guidance to help strategize about career paths. Furthermore, there could be better definition of job responsibilities.
