    I have been working at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company takes care of you, and you get compensated when you work more than 40 hours a week. Great for the work life balance. A large company allows you to transfer jobs, or join the rotation program to gain experience. The professional rotation program can get you on to submarines to get some valuable supervisory experience early in your career. Overall, EB is a good place to work.

    Cons

    It's near impossible for someone to get fired for poor performance. Too many people get hired for too little work. If you're a young engineer, expect that, in most departments, you're not going to be challenged. There are some excellent supervisors and managers, but there are about as many bad ones. Unions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pay overtime, but give larger bonuses to those who get in the hours AND get results.
    Don't hire people to meet your staffing lines, unless your staffing lines are based on real work. Look around the cubes and you'll get a good idea of how much free time people have. Get connected with them and be able to have some more candid conversations with your top, young performers.
    Don't just give promotions because people have been there long enough, make people earn them.
    Get people closer to the product they work on. Submarines are awesome, but I only had one or two chances to go on one in my first two years.
