      Pros

      Worked at NGC for 35 years. Great company to work for. Many opportunities to move within the company, however you have to look for and develop the opportunities. You are generally rewarded for what you do and for your performance. The benefits are better that average. You can make a great career if you work hard, contribute and are good at what you do.

      Cons

      It is a large company and there are political influences you will have to deal with. As a primarily DOD contractor the annual raises can be slim to non existent in some years. Benefit cost have been going up the last few years. Work life balance is preached but not always practiced.

      Good for Professional growth

      Pros

      NG is good at giving people opportunities. The engineering matrix in MS ensures that people can rotate to new opportunities and grow in their professional development while staying in a company and gaining tenure.

      Cons

      It is a large company. In the end, you are just an employee. The recent sale of 3 different units of the business and 6400 employees shows that whether you work there 2 weeks or 30 years, you only matter as much as the revenue.

      Pros

      401K match is excellent! Many other opportunities within the company for other job positions.

      Cons

      Nothing other than what comes with working for a large company. Extra trainings that don't necessarily apply to your job, mediocre health benefits, low PTO earning until you've been with the company a while.

      Pros

      - The rotation program is a great way to draw in new engineers because there is opportunity to move both within the company and across the country to other locations - Pay and benefits are pretty good for such a large company - Pretty good work-life balance in my group where much overtime isn't expected or needed - 9/80 schedule and flexible time is also nice

      Cons

      - The 3 year cliff for 401K vesting sucks a little bit but is definitely a way to keep talent - I've only been here a few months, but everything moves slowly and I think could benefit from something like Agile. It would be nice to be given projects in a more streamlined, faster-paced way, but this is more of a personal preference.

      Pros

      Good people, good opportunity for growth and development of skills, training in your area of expertise. Salary and benefits are on par with other large companies, and better than most businesses overall.

      It is a Large Company, so there is a need to look out for your best interests and not get labeled and get stuck in a situation where you get typecast, limiting your upward mobility.
