"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."

"The community here at Northrop Grumman is a dog-eat-dog one. If starting out fresh with no prior knowledge it is hard to find a mentor or someone to teach you the ropes. It is a lot of self-teaching and bumping your head but if you don't mind cracking some eggs to make an omelet you will fit in just fine"

Senior Manufacturing Engineer

"I worked at Astro for 2+ years as a contract engineer. I loved working on 5 programs dealing with deployable satellite reflector antennas. All of my coworkers were exceptional people along with my immediate boss. A decision was made by management to release the 12 contract engineers working at Astro after 2 + years due to budgetary restraints. All 12 of us would work there again if asked."

"I've only worked at Northrop Grumman for two years as a contractor. They provided all the tools and resources necessary to complete the job and were able to provide a comfortable salary to live off of. I will be honest, in my opinion, that I feel that I was not given a fair opportunity to become a full-time hire. Some supervisors expect perfection from day one and if you make a mistake early on, they look down upon you and share a negative opinion about you with other managers. I did make a few mistakes early on, but granted, there was a big learning curve with Northrop Grumman's in-house tools and design releasing process. Even though I improved and became very proficient at my job at Northrop Grumman, when it came time to ask for full-time status at the semi-annual review meetings, they always brought up my early mistakes. Even with the help from other engineers, project managers and tech employees even vouched for me claiming that I had improved vastly and was doing great, but that wasn't enough. Though, I got along well with everyone and respected all managers, the managers themselves played favorites and gave preference of full-time status to newer, inexperienced contractors over the seasoned contractors. Northrop Grumman is a great workplace and has a lot of reliable work, but make sure you're given a fair shake and assigned manager is willing to work with you."
