Pros

NG has some great contracts doing amazing things. NG also tends to have stable contracts that can easily go for 5+ years, so once you're on a contract and get along with the COTR and your PM, you have a great deal of job stability.

Cons

Working at a client site really cuts you off from feeling connected to NG. There's a tendancy to allow the PM too much freedom in hiring friends that might not be fully qualified for their positions.

Advice to Management

Do more to keep people working on client sites connected and pass through a greater amount of the bill rate to employees.

    Pros

    Supportive of outside work life most of the time, excellent and affordable fitness center, generally a good staff to work with

    Cons

    Poor education reimbursement, upper management needs improvement in developing young talent, raises and promotions could be better, some projects have too many layers of management

    Advice to Management

    It still does not feel like One Northrop Grumman. Some sectors are still more desirable to work at than others. Benefits and perks should be the same across the board. The young talent does not feel committed to this company, and NG will lose them unless they show them they are serious about developing into the next technical and management leaders.
