    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

    Pros

    Good company with lots of flexibility to work in jobs around the USA and around the globe. Tuition reimbursement, good healthcare, 401k matching. I've worked as both management and technical staff and have enjoyed each job for about 4 years and then transferred elsewhere.

    Cons

    It's a big company. You can feel like nothing more than a number, especially when you have to deal with their benefits center (outsourced to Fidelity) or tuition reimbursement people (outsourced to EdAssist, quite possibly the MOST FRUSTRATING PROCESS EVER!!!!)

    Advice to Management

    Make all the touchpoints for your employees less painful. Make efforts to select managers who are more engaged with their staff. Get some actual Northrop Grumman employees that you can talk to if you have problems, not outsourced contract labor.
