Big 5 Defense Contractors Not Hurt by Their Multiple Cases of Misconduct

Getting into trouble has not put a damper on business for the nations largest defense contractors.

According to the Department of Defenses rankings for 2010, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics and Raytheon continued to make more money than all other companies receiving contracts from the military.

The Sunlight Foundation, a government watchdog group, noted that the Big 5 defense firms all have multiple instances of defense-related misconduct cases79 in all. This would indicate the Pentagon hasnt felt the need to redirect business away from the companies, even though some of the misconduct included breaking federal law.
