An amazing company, understands the military and provides a great culture. I would love to work the rest of my life at the company. They will help you with obtaining your goals and leave you in a good place for retirement.

Not bad if you can find you place.

Most things about the company, like the pay, training, benefits, people, and opportunities, are great. However everyone may not be as accepting as the next person. Some of the managers aren't familiar enough with the tasks they are overseeing and take a people pushers approach.

Great experience for Interns

The work environment is low stress and expectations aren't very high for interns. You'll work on a task but it may not be the most exciting due to the security clearance barrier. Interactions with other interns and new graduate workers is great. Managers are nice and are always willing to help.


Great Culture, Nice People, Work-life balance


Not very challenging

What is the best part of working at the company?Coworkers were nice for the most part. Management and higher really could care less about personal issues or case by case basis scenarios. Always overworked. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Unrealistic deadlines and last minute schedule changes with no warning. Even if it was known that a person HAD to be off at a certain time they would discipline without warning. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Friendly people for the most part, mostly middle aged and bery “stuck in their ways”What is a typical day like for you at the company?Start at 5am. Severely overloaded work schedule. Was literally told if you want to go home ALL this needs to be done, ect. Now the amount of work was way more than anyone could accomplish in said timeframe

Productive and fun

This an awesome place. Everything is cool and fun to learn but the only problem is nobody can get a raise. There is no way of getting a raise. I’ve been here for a year and still haven’t gotten a raise. I love my job but the cost of living is going up and things are getting a lot harder. You would think a big company like this would have a plan for people getting raises but they don’t so I’m currently searching for a new job.

Work/Life Balance is lacking

Overall I feel working for NG is good experience and added value to my resume for future work in the defense industry. Unsure of long term growth available within the company.


Benefits are decent. Pay is fair.


Work culture can be harsh.

Pretty Decent

It's a big company, so lots of opportunities to try to new things or do different types of work. I worked with a great time, but a lot of opportunities available to you are based on how much your manager is willing to go to bat for you.

Great company to start out at, large defense feel

You get to work on some really cool projects. Things move incredibly slow due to large company and nature of defense work. Standard large defense contractor politics.


Flexible work schedule


Hard to advance quickly

Pretty standard government contractor

It's a decent company. Pay was decent but hard to get ahead if you weren't part of the "in club". Not the best management, co-workers were good. I'd go back for the right job.




No bonuses, no profit sharing

Incredibly interesting and engaging work. Very large company so it espouses a very rigid structure.

Fun projects. Very quality and safety focused. Not every company gets to work on rockets. Promotions and pay raises were definitely time based instead of merit based. Not much room flexibility. They usually promote on schedule and rarely, if ever, not on schedule. However, it is disappointing that promotions are tied to a schedule.

Great place to work

It’s a fast past long hours if you want. Always working on the cutting edge of technology. People are great, some bosses are terrible but most are good.

Long hours, average pay

You aren’t allowed to have phones on you, pay is very average and seems to be manager favorites that get the promotions. Can be very slow at times, but that’s rare.
