I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Access to other technology leaders to exchange and develop new technologies. Very good resource pool for developing aerospace optics to tap from. Pay was more than competitive.

Cons

Health care benefits were subpar to broader industry and especially so compared to other industries. Getting papers and presentations approved for publication can be extremely frustrating and time consuming. In these lean times for government spending, don't expect there to be a lot of growth.

Advice to Management

Expand beyond being strong dependence on government contracts.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have help programs that help insiders find work if their contract ends. And total strangers within the company will help you network.

    Cons

    Once you're outside the "family" you're suddenly an orphan.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the connections open awhile once the employee has left the company for fault of their own.
