    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is forward thinking, diverse, and of course technically advanced. A four-fold increase in stock price over the past few years indicates strong leadership at the top echelons. There is a lot of opportunity within the company to grow careers and advance your education.

    Cons

    Many folks do not see what NGC brings to the table as far as advancing technology. The technology used in developing products often has application value in non-defense products. Being associated with the military industry often sheds a dim light on an outstanding company

    Advice to Management

    Streamline processes. Years and years of processes have taken away agility

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salford, North West England, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (Salford, North West England, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    - No technical phone/pre-screening

    - 3 hour online coding test that was very 'academic' - poor test of actual ability (Codility)

    - Interviewers mostly read questions from a book. Weren't receptive to answers that didn't mention specific keywords.

    - Interview very one-sided. Two-way discussion attempts were shot down.

    - Role appeared different from the one I applied for.

    - Generally poor-feeling about culture and personalities (or lack of) in office.

    Invited back for further stages but declined.
