    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Good benefits and 401K match. No better job than one where you can personally contribute to protecting you family and your nation. Proud to be 1NG.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. Legacy employees will tell you that benefits aren't what they used to be. Such is life everywhere in the US. Be happy for what we still do have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to train and mentor your staff. Lead by example.
