    Current Employee - Supervisory Engineer in Newport, RI

    I have been working at Naval Undersea Warfare Center full-time (more than 10 years)


    Flexible Schedule allows for family time when needed. Excellent benefits including vacation, holidays, sick time, credit time, travel time, 401K matching, pension, health care.


    Promotions take too long to achieve. Employees apply for promotion potential jobs and have to work for several years prior to being promoted. This is the only agency/company that I am aware of that does not promote upon receiving the new job.

    Some of the office buildings are extremely old. Carpeting is worn, windows are drafty, mold growing on the walls, and overall the buildings are dirty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions should be automatic after a probationary period (for example 1 year). If the person chosen for the position is not capable of performing the duties of the position after the probationary period is completed they should be removed from the position and return to their previous position or other similar position.

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary offered was 11% below my current salary. As much as I appreciate and respect NUWC and the folks that work there, I could not bring myself to entertain the offer.
