    Pros

    NGC has great career planning tools such as unlimited tuition assistance, career guidance, and department transfers opportunities.

    Cons

    Company is very middle-management heavy. So much so that it takes 4 managers to handle something 1 manager can do. For example, In an avionics lab you'll have a manager in charge of the equipment, another manager in charge of the room itself, and another manager in charge of what the lab is actually doing (i.e. production) and finally, a manager in charge of personnel. You'll also never see most of the managers because they're in meetings all the time.

    Good Company - Rough Managment

    CEO Approval

    Pros

    Decent benefits and pay. Long time employees extremely knowledgeable and good mentors. GREAT work life balance and good program level management.

    Cons

    High turn over rate. Upper corporate management tends to be the source of a lot of the problems. Staffing issues result in project delays and quarterly work reallocation. Promotion process is directly tied in with hiring process, so getting a promotion involves applying for the job you are already doing. As well as heavier upper management oversight. Bigger programs get more priority for promoting and hiring staff, so it's often easier to jump to another program to get a promotion. This results in much of the talent being siphoned away from smaller programs.
