    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 a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, PTO, work from home options, lots of engagement activities, good, smart, hardworking coworkers, great managers, and they compensate you for some continuing education. It's contract work, but they won't let you go if a contract ends, they will help you find a new place to go

    Cons

    Because of the contract work, you sometimes get stuck in a lower pay grade than you should be. I think this is the only downside

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company tries to retain employees with good benefits and pay. There seems to be plenty of room to move around if you get bored and at least some chance to advance.

    Cons

    Though they are generally good about work life balance in theory; certain positions for rather long periods of time can becomes jobs of constant overtime and weekend work. Though most are somewhat flexible on this.
