    When I started with the company in 2008, the salary was good and the benefits were comparable to what you might find other places. Decent health plan, 2 weeks vacation to start, and working in the IT sector on the US Postal contract meant that, for the most part, management wasn't an issue at all as you were primarily working for Postal managers and dealt with the parent company only in terms of pay and benefits.


    You won't find info on this anywhere in the media, other than press releases by Northrop Grumman, but the Postal IT contact was renegotiated in 2009. Other than maintaining their right to continue to provide contractors to the USPS, there wasn't much to be excited about in the outcome of the negotiations. Pay was cut for all Postal contractors by 6% across the board and 12% for any third-party contractors. This was done after providing cost of living increases during the yearly reviews earlier in the year at the same time the negotiations were taking place with the USPS. The 2 weeks of paid time off is the max you can get during your first five years with the organization and after that it increases to 3 weeks. That is where it maxes out permanently. Additionally, this time off is used for both vacation and sick time. There was previously an option to purchase an additional week of PTO - but this has been phased out for 2010. So most folks are capped at two weeks of PTO. A new change has been made to the PTO time keeping procedures, as well that makes it near impossible to make any money for extra hours worked during any pay period containing a holiday. So, work on Christmas, get paid your regular hours and the holiday hours are just banked for use later - but holiday pay cannot be carried from year to year - so use it or lose it at the end of the year. On contracts other than the USPS, half of all PTO has been converted to holiday pay - thus depriving employees of the option of carrying that time over from year to year. Most of these changes were not communicated ahead of time - and the lack of communication during the negotiation process left contractors wondering and allowed rumors and poor moral to fester during the run-up to the implementation of these new mandates. The poor handling of the new terms for contractors left the Postal management with a sour taste as well, as they felt that NG balancing their books on the backs of their employees' paychecks was fostering discontent among the contractors - ultimately diminishing the the quality of the "Product" being provided by NG.

    Advice to Management

    As NG is in the business of providing contractors, it would be wise to keep the contractors in the loop with regard to the negotiations of those contracts. Handing out raises, only to take those raises, plus more, back at the end of the year left employees feeling that management had no sense of what was going on - it appeared to be very short-sighted. Most of the contractors would have been far less aggravated to have been denied a raise for this and next year, knowing that times are tight, than to have had it handled the way it was. And the additional concessions being asked of the employees have left the most with the feeling that corporate is trying to nickel and dime its way to higher profitability via their employees' overall compensation.
