    Pros

    Benefits are quite good. Compensation is adequate for the location. HIstorically the opeartion was Sperry Marine and the employees take pride in thier products and results of operation. This organization (NG Charlottesville) can be an excellent career stepping stone if you are willing to play the NG game.

    Cons

    Top management tends to want employees to give all and then expect little in return. Thus work/life balance is quit bad. Middle managment operates via intimidation. Workpace can be what may be considered hostile at times. Senior management believes that the only good ideas come from NG Sector.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your people and and involve them, they have a history that can make your future better. And remember, without the people, the shareholders don't make a dime. The people make NG, not managers.

    Pros

    Big, stable company. The checks don't bounce. Decent benefits, though in Jul;y 2012 they drastically increased the cost to employees for health insurance. This COULD BE a great place to work.

    Cons

    All internal processes must comply with federal gov't standards and requirements, regardless of whether or not you are working on a fed project. As a result, working at NG is just like working at the DOD or any federal agency. Red tape, bureaucratic infighting and ridiculously complex and convoluted internal processes stifle the ability to get things done in a timely fashion. The customer is almost an afterthought to NG. Since I've been here, we've lost more deals due to our own internal incompetence and inability to deliver a timely proposal response than we have lost to genuine competition.
