Worked a short job for them, was treated great
Site Lead (Former Employee) –  Research Triangle Park, NCJanuary 19, 2017
I refreshed hardware for a government agency. I enjoyed networking with everyone there and was given the opportunity to travel. Management was OK, they did what they had to do. Workplace culture was pretty good. The hardest part of the job was working remote sites on a tight timetable. The most enjoyable part of the job was contributing my strengths to the team.
Pros
A lot of unique opportunities
Cons
Work ended

Trades trainer and safety officer
Allied Trades Senior Trainer (Current Employee) –  Arabia, OHJanuary 17, 2017
I was in charge of the Allied Trade section in Saudi Arabia for Northrop Grumman. I oversaw the machine shop, carpentry shop, tire shop, battery shop, radiator shop, auto repair shop, paint shop, and upholstery shop. My main focus was for safety and continued training Saudi Arabia National Guard. I was there as a guest not only to update their military but also to be a representative of the United States. I enjoyed the camaraderie and the friendship of not only my coworkers but also learning about their families, their traditions, And their way of life. It is it rewarding experience that I will not only take back with me when I return to the states but they will also understand the love that Americans have for all people.
Pros
Working with great people
Cons
On the other side of the world away from family

Excellent Onsite Employer
Talent Acquisition Business Partner (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAJanuary 12, 2017
NGC is an excellent employer, however they are not supportive of remote employees, and do not encourage their career growth and development. The industry is also very volatile, and reorganization happens frequently.

Monolithic company with upper management that pretends you're more than a number
Program Cost Manager (Current Employee) –  Dayton, OHJanuary 4, 2017
Northrop likes to talk a big game to its employees about how much it cares. Local management cares about its employees by offering a great work/life balance. This is excellent. But upper management cuts pay increases and benefits, all the while crying to employees that the economy is making them suffer, when, in fact, the company is doing quite well. Cutting of benefits and pay increases would not be so hard to swallow if the company were just honest with its employees about why they chose to make the cuts, instead of trying to pull the wool over our eyes. What's more, upper management started a new performance incentive program that makes it nearly impossible for staff employees on small contracts to win earn this award, while employees working high profile contracts are always front runners. What's worse is the incentive program makes it very easy for middle-to-upper management to receive the award, while it becomes much more difficult the further down the "food chain" you are.
Pros
Work/life balance
Cons
Cutting of benefits even though the company is doing well, performance incentive program too easy for upper management to win
