I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Plenty of training. Travel if you need it. Generous benefit package. Excellent set of colleagues.

Cons

Government contractor subject to an extra layer of government controls and red tape.

Advice to Management

You don't always have to sell the gold plated custom Cadillac. Sometimes the customer wants a Chevy S10. You have to resist government tendency to keep changing the scope of projects under construction. While you will make more money on change orders, in the long run endemic cost overruns destroy political support for funding the programs.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big, stable company. The checks don't bounce. Decent benefits, though in Jul;y 2012 they drastically increased the cost to employees for health insurance. This COULD BE a great place to work.

    Cons

    All internal processes must comply with federal gov't standards and requirements, regardless of whether or not you are working on a fed project. As a result, working at NG is just like working at the DOD or any federal agency. Red tape, bureaucratic infighting and ridiculously complex and convoluted internal processes stifle the ability to get things done in a timely fashion. The customer is almost an afterthought to NG. Since I've been here, we've lost more deals due to our own internal incompetence and inability to deliver a timely proposal response than we have lost to genuine competition.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A high technology company, involved in the business of maintaining our national security: IT, Avionics, unmanned vehicles, city infrastructures and many more. A great company for the new graduates and early career individuals with fantastic opportuniies for advancement.

    Cons

    It depends on US government contracts for the majority of its business. Northrop Grumman is uncertain of the funding and how it will affect current programs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you have done so well.
