    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is forward thinking, diverse, and of course technically advanced. A four-fold increase in stock price over the past few years indicates strong leadership at the top echelons. There is a lot of opportunity within the company to grow careers and advance your education.

    Cons

    Many folks do not see what NGC brings to the table as far as advancing technology. The technology used in developing products often has application value in non-defense products. Being associated with the military industry often sheds a dim light on an outstanding company

    Advice to Management

    Streamline processes. Years and years of processes have taken away agility

    Pros

    NG holds the highest regards for ethics and values when it comes to doing business. Management is transparent and I feel what I contribute truly makes a difference to our end product.

    Cons

    Too many levels of approval to go through to move forward.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to communicate and be transparent with employees at all levels.
