    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are several interesting projects to work on, and you get the chance to have a say in which area you work in There's chance to increase your skills in a variety of areas There's good people there who you can learn a lot from

    Cons

    No loyalty - if you don't get through the filter process, a clause in your contract allows them to let you go - several people suddenly disappeared while I was there No business creativity/diversification from the top - solely focused on a "More bodies sent to their sole customer equals more money" formula Laughable 1% annual pay rises - a very few get one or two more percentage points - you need to be a *very* squeaky wheel (ie. threaten to leave) to get anything decent

    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The once a year layoffs (2010-2015ish) have stopped, stable long term employment.

    Cons

    Steady reduction in benefits (pto, credit hours, health care in years past) continues with a new, no exceptions cap on tuition reimbursement. Currently enrolled employees had this sprung on them with just 2 months notice. Combined with the policy that if you leave the company, you must pay back 2 years of tuition, this leaves current students who are unable to cover their tuition with the options of finding another company willing to cover those two years as a signing bonus or simply abandoning their degree and riding out those two years at NG.
