    I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very authentic company culture. Work is amazing! Great benefits! Competitive salary! There's something about this particular aerospace/defense company that makes the stand out (I'd say the best aerospace/defense company ever in terms of culture). It definitely has something to do with the leadership.

    Cons

    Like all companies, getting too big could mean lack of innovation. Very small shrinks in benefits (education reimbursements), while salaries went up. (small potatoes compared to overall picture)

    Solid benefits, good PTO accrual, decent pay, flexible schedule.
