Featured Review

Current Employee - Systems Engineer

I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good group of people with diverse backgrounds. Generally good work life balance, put in your 40 and go home but if you want to work OT you will get paid for it. Definitely get a sense that what you... do actually matters. Feel close to the mission.

Cons

Lots of growing pains right now.

Advice to Management

Get a bigger building. Communication flowdown could be better.

Former Intern - Electrical Engineer Intern

I worked at Orbital ATK

Pros

Hands-on experience, Great location in Dulles, VA, Offers 9/80 flex Friday schedule. Great work environment with a lot of diversity.

Cons

Not often enough work for interns to do. There is a good amount of downtime. Intern events and lunches are non-chargeable events which discourages attendance.
