Q: What is it like working at Northrop Grumman Corporation?

Senior Software Engineer:
The flexible schedule and generally laid back culture are great. Aging tools and technologies combine with gobs of red tape to make actually getting work done difficult. There have been plans in place for years to update these processes, but I expect it to take a few more before any headway is made. Most projects attempt to follow SCRUM methodologies, but waterfall contracts make that a constant struggle. Requirements tend to be poorly defined with details left to individual developers. As a result, there are frequently wildly different solutions to common problems, even within a project.

Security Analyst in Baltimore, Maryland:
"Good place to work but normal challenges."
Pros: Schedule
Cons: Pay

Information Security Manager in Washington, District of Columbia:
"The pay could be better aligned to match workload."
Pros: Northrop Grumman is an OK company to work for I like the winter shutdown I believe that's great.
Cons: I'm not fairly paid to be honest.

Project Manager, Engineering in Los Angeles:
"Excellent."
Pros: Management of personnel and projects.
Cons: No windows in a spartan work environment.

Proposal Analyst in Melbourne:
"Good culture."
Pros: Freedom in work flexibility. Great team members. Supportive manager. Find my work interesting.
Cons: Can be hard to get answers. Sometimes don't have enough to do, since I am new.

Program Manager, Engineering in Salt Lake City:
"Good pay, bad raises. Work is as hard as you want it to be."
Pros: I've worked at NGC for six years as an ME and it honestly is as hard or as easy as you want it to be. I've had times where I made myself extremely busy and I've had times where I took it easy. As an EPM now it is out of my control, it is extremely busy and I have no choice but to try to keep up while going to school full-time. It is hard, but I know it is temporary and will be worth it in the end.
Cons: Repetetiveness/boredom, corporate red-tape, lack of profit sharing, same thing every day...

Electrical Engineer in Baltimore:
"Lots of additional assignments."
Pros: I like the work atmosphere.
Cons: I do not like my pay.
