    Pros

    free parking, on a first come first serve basis.
    free bi-monthly lunches if your department has good safety record
    majority of colleagues are friendly
    casual attire and enviroment
    department managers are down to earth and helpful.

    Cons

    no support from managers
    no work structure
    lacks communication
    too much favoritism, unprofessional mannerisms
    what is suppose to be a "luncheon reward", turns out they deduct from your pay.
    it's a "not how you work, but who you know. environment"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to your employees, after all it's them who support you. In return, you need to show consideration and respect.

    I worked at BAE Systems Ship Repair as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Long hours, overtime, interesting work environment, lots of overtime, learn new things, and I definitely enjoyed some of the folks that I worked with.

    Cons

    Long hours, overtime, low pay, and broken promises. There were lots of department supervisors/management that played favorites with their employees and didn't keep to following rules set forth in bylaws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your promises and be more consistent in acquiring contracts!
