Control Analyst (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKApril 30, 2015
There is room for advancement but it may take a long time to get there and you definitely have to prove yourself by always going above and beyond. Depending on what contract you are assigned days can be long and stressful with high demand from leadership.

Good company to work for
Engineer (Current Employee), MarylandApril 29, 2015
Pros: Standard defense contractor benefits package
Cons: limited advancement
Not a bad company to work for. There are opportunities if you are willing to travel and take on jobs you may not want. As with any defense contracting company, jobs are dependent on government policies and budget. It would be great if the company ventured into more civilian areas. Standard benefits package for defense contracting company.

Fun for all who shares the power between themself
West Coast Plant Equipment Engineering, (Current Employee), El-Segundo CAApril 28, 2015
A typical day at work is chasing your tail until the day ends without results.
I learned if I speak out for the good of the company I may loose my job
Management is unprepared for the task
Co-workers are few
The hardest part of the job is to explain management things what is common knowledge
The most enjoyable part of the job is to make something what I always liked

Great job to learn skills
Pipefitter (Former Employee), Newport News, VAApril 27, 2015
I really loved my job at Northrop Grumman. I learned a great skill while employed there. I worked in the Pipe fitter department which required the installation of Nuclear pipe on Nuclear Submarines and Air craft carriers. The job required us to work closely with the US Navy and offered the opportunity to learn a lot of new techniques to apply to the job

Norhttop Grumman the aerospace shuffle
Chief Engineer (Former Employee), Beale AFBApril 22, 2015
Pros: Interesting work
Cons: Programs come and go
NG is your typical large aerospace contractor. Programs come and go every few years so you always have to be looking for your next job inside the company. If you can break through to the senior manager level then you have it made. Otherwise you are doing what I call the aerospace shuffle.

It is not a bad place to work as long as you are aware of how the game is played.

The first few years were awesome. then a new breed of bosses came in and quality of life at the company went down hill fast
Maintenance Janitor (Former Employee), Bethpage, NYApril 21, 2015
There were no typical days at Grumman. Every day was different, in a sense of what had to be done on that day. The main thing I learned was how to get along with people better. Management was OK but not great. I got along great with my co-workers some of whom were outstanding at there craft. The hardest part I would say was when a co-worker doesn't carry there weight in a assignment. The most enjoyable part was the relax atmosphere at the job.

Great way to make money
Inside Machinist (Former Employee), Newport News, VAApril 18, 2015
Pros: Learning the trade
Cons: Management
The hours were great and the pay was amazing! However, the work is tedious and consuming. I loved the people I had to work with but the management was cocky, rude and disrespectful. I worked as a inside machinist apprentice and I loved it. Each day I would work on a project, read blue prints, layout work pieces and inspect my parts. There are so many moving parts when doing this type of work but it was fun.
