    Current Employee - Engineer in New London, CT

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

    Pros

    - Employees take pride in their work
     - Relatively secure future work prospects, even with the defense budget in flux
     - Opportunities to see tons of different work areas/types within the company

    Cons

    - New London and Groton CT don't have much going for them
     - Salary and growth is predominantly a function of time with the company, not as much performance
     - The frustrating inefficiency that comes with a large corporation in government contract

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more incentives to encourage/retain high performers. Micromanaging employees is not the way to improve production.
