    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.

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Getting to set up virtual environments and keep them running. If you need something to get the job done management will actually get it for you.

    Cons

    Sometimes have to work as "IT" in environments you create/are in charge of due to no IT department for said environments.
