Production Control Coordinator (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – October 28, 2014
Pros: great people to work with and we all workrd as a team
Northrup is a great company with great people to work with. I enjoyed the many years I worked there. I also feel great that I was able to participate in the help of providing for our military in any help I could for their safety and tools to do their job
Treated with respect and not that stressful, yet lacking compensation
Engineer I (Current Employee), California – October 27, 2014
Pros: on campus gym (unpaid), pto, holiday time off
Cons: no windows, poor compensation, compartmentalized work, corporate doesn't care about bonuses
Managers are fair with you about work and you're not constantly on your heels about getting fired. Yet work is very departmentalized and there isn't a lot of opportunity for career growth or foreseeable compensation advancements. Not competitive in work culture or compensation.
The hardest part of the job is living in a remote location e.g. Palmdale.
Laser Technician (Current Employee), Apopka, FL – October 16, 2014
Many different systems to work, which makes it fun and challenging. Work with a great bunch of guys and gals... Learned a lot about the importance of proper documentation in a manufacturing environment, specially for a DoD company. Management is very accessible and supportive.
QA (Former Employee), Avondale, LA – October 15, 2014
Pros: experience gained: invaluable
Cons: had to walk almost three quarters of a mile from parking lot to work site every morning.
Hard work required in an industrial environment, safety regulations strictly in place and followed. Had to learn concept of team work. Worked at safe pace, no one scrutinizing your every move as long as you were working and not avoiding your responsibilities.
