"I've worked for NGC for 3 years, 2 as an intern and 1 as an employee. The company supports its employees and pays for school as well as having deals with schools, so you can get your masters on campus with classes on the off Fridays. The 9/80 work week is great and they shut down from Christmas to New Year's every year by using all the floating holidays then."

"I worked for Northrop Grumman for 12 years and in the last 7 years they have shown that they are not a very ethical company. They do not care why people quit when it is for poor management reasons or due to retaliation. They sell products to one customer, then use the same parts from that product on another product to sell it to another customer."

"Xetron was a great company until Northrop rolled in and ruined it. Benefits eliminated or weakened, poor raises, age discrimination, toxic work environment reduces or eliminates open collaborative work. If your particular project goes bad you will be blacklisted by management even if it is not related to your effort."

"Northrop Grumman is highly focused on improving shareholder value. One method the executives are using is to minimize employee pay and benefits. Salary increase pools have averaged 2% for 4 years. Managers find it impossible to get grade level upgrades approved for well qualified employees, which results in turnover as employees leave to find a pay raise. In 2014 bonuses were shifted to managers and senior employees from less experienced team members. Very large government contract award fees generated by dedicated employees is not shared with the team below the director / VP level. Workloads are highly varied among skills and projects. Many employees work more than 400 hours of overtime year after year, while others work none and are underutilized. Pay-for-performance is ineffectively implemented resulting in very low morale in some organizations where work load and results do not correlate with pay raises. Employee survey results showing low morale are ignored and re-surveyed as if the answers should magically change without some leadership effort. For the lucky employees that find a great group, with leadership that recognizes their effort, Northrop is a great place to be. For many others, it’s only a sustaining job until a better opportunity arises. Before accepting a Northrop job, find out if the opening is a replacement for a recent departure rather than growth. That likely indicates the manger can’t keep their employees satisfied."

"Upper management is not very forthcoming with information and they don`t really do a good job of taking care of their employees.moving up in the company is difficult and employees don`t get a lot of help from management on that unless you happen to be a favorite of theirs."

"I've worked at NGC since 2010 and they are not friendly toward young graduates. It is hard to get recognized, especially as a female and much of the management is not really fit to be managing individuals. They are not very supportive and do not care to help you progress through your career. You have to try very hard to find someone to assist you and get you through the company but if you find your way, you will be decently compensated."

"As nature of consulting work, NG wants you you to stick with them until last day of project and they will not place you in next project. Hardly you get week or two to find another project within company or you will be fired."
