How would you describe the work environment/culture within Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine?

Professional, friendly and helpful.

What would you tell a potential applicant about Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine?

Sperry Marine is a company that fosters diversion, and also the personal development of each employee. Even in one office (Hamburg, Germany) I have colleagues with different nationalities and from different cultures, which widens my personal horizon. Potentials of the individual are easily identified and developed by providing the right training for the right person. These are all the things I enjoy while working at Sperry Marine.

What have been your professional highlight while working within Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine?

This is quite difficult to say, since I feel any success during work is a professional highlight. The introduction of the price book for standard steering control systems is worth mentioning, but also the successful Integrated Bridge System project management for two Stena Line Ro-Ro ferries, the then biggest in the world.

What do you enjoy most about working at Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine?

The best thing about working at Sperry Marine, despite the great working environment, is the versatility of the work. There are no two projects that are alike, no matter in which function you work. Also, working in the marine industry has shifted my perspective, given the sheer size of seagoing vessels, and all the different aspects of navigation. In addition to that, I also enjoy working with international customers and all the colleagues from different countries in our various offices.
