Daily conference room support, and several PM meetings
Audio Visual Project Manager/Technician (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – March 19, 2018
toughest job to date. learned a lot. Also worked with some not-so friendly management. Learned time management and multitasking. Long drive from home, so commute was rough. Ended up being "sequestered" a few years back. Lessons learned.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – June 13, 2018
Unionized and compartmentalized. Not a good place to learn or grow. A very combative place where parties are very territorial (see unionized). On most assignments I can grow and make inroads. Here there were all sorts of barriers. This seems to be a dinosaur company and a very inflexible one at that. My manager was a good guy who was put in a bad spot and did his best to take care of us.
Also, the cafeteria is terrible. The location was horrible traffic wise.
On the bright side, they made it all worth my while with a good wage and lots of OT.
Laser Tech 1 (Former Employee) – Rolling Meadows, IL – June 13, 2018
I started as a Laser Tech. I loved working there. When I asked to learn more than assembling lasers, they taught me how to troubleshoot them. Then I was taught how to build all the sub assemblies that went into make the laser. They took a Gallop Poll each year and each department worked on an area that was considered a low. Employee feedback was important to them. They treated their employees like gold. If I didn't like the city I would still be working for them. They are AWESOME!
Information Technology Analyst (Current Employee) – CA – June 12, 2018
Not good for growth, seems to be in the IT field leave it alone, we dont have the budget. if you want to advance you better know someone. Also the tech is always a few years behind the curve, and training is up to you.
Like myself, other employees with a many of years in the company were treated poorly and unfairly. This company used to be a great place to work or start a career. It has gone down the drain the past few years.
Electronic Technician (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – June 11, 2018
My time at NG was great. Overall the pay was good until certain contract requirements caused the pay to be cut across the board. Other than the pay cut we took which wasn't actually Northrops fault everything else was great. I enjoyed my time working with them. Maybe someday I can work for them again.
SAP Delivery & Development Manager (Former Employee) – Virigina – June 11, 2018
I believe that NG is probably a good company to work for, but not at the site and program I was attached to. The skillsets for this contract were not typical of NG, so it was difficult to find additional opportunities.
Subcontract Manager (Current Employee) – Redondo Beach, CA – June 11, 2018
Unfortunately the work/life balance is not great at Northrop. Expectation is to work extra hours at no pay as most employees are salaried. Upper management lacks the necessary ability to people manage.
compensation is not competative compared to local companies
Designer II (Nuclear Piping Propulsion Plant) (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – June 10, 2018

DB2 DBA (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 9, 2018
I was a contractor and they only had one client for me. When that client didn't need me anymore they didn't help to find another. I was suppose to have a mentor but they left the a week later and they only worked 1/2 days.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Clearfield, UT – June 9, 2018
Working for Northrop and Grumman I loved working with the people there. They help each other and collaborate to complete the job. The hardest part of the job is the long shifts, however you get more days off per week than a standard job would have.

Northrop Grumman is a diverse company that offers many perks including upward mobility to their employees. The classes offered at the DAU university is a big incentive for me to continue to learn my craft. The continuous training is encourage by Northrop Grumman.
