Northrop Grumman was recently named one of the best places to work for Cyber Ninjas

Earning a spot at the top, Northrop Grumman was named among the best places to work for Cyber Ninjas, according to a recent report issued by the SANS Institute, a global leader in information security training. 

“Cyber Ninjas” are defined as those cybersecurity experts whose day-to-day tasks require higher-level technical skills. The report features interviews with employees from the top-rated government system integrators who discussed what they deemed most critical for recruiting and retention.

“Our goal is to show there are a bunch of companies doing it really well,” said Alan Paller, director of research, SANS Institute.  “That should maximize the pressure on others to try to be more like the leaders and thereby improve productivity across the cybersecurity field.”

Told through the eyes of the employees, the interviews show the "how and why" of effective recruiting and retention. “The most important thing to me is being able to do challenging and engaging work,” said Jack Baker, Northrop Grumman cyber professional working on the company’s cyber threat assessment and awareness team. “The mission is a bonus - doing challenging projects for the right purpose is really great.”

“Look at their leadership - you want to see diversity, technical experience and leaders who engage with their employees for constant feedback,” said Lauren Mazzoli, a Northrop Grumman cyber systems engineer, responding to a question about assessing potential employers. “You want to know the organization is made up of people who are willing and able to help you, support you and get you where you want to go.”
