    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

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

    Pros

    I like the 9/80 work week, my immediate managers are always wonderful, and there's always room for growth within the company!

    Cons

    Work always seems to come in waves. The work life balance will be solid for six months (but with not much to do), then six months of Extended Work Week. Also, upper management never seems to have much interest in the lower folk.

    Pros

    Aside from the standard red tape associated with any government contract, the corporate is really easy to navigate and understand.

    Cons

    In my contract, underway travel onboard naval ships are somewhat common. I don't mind but I can understand how others may view the experience as unpleasant.
