Easy going but no real chance for advancement

Marine Engineer (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsManagement is pretty flexible with hours with respect to work load. They don't really micromanage. Good benefits and continuing education assistance. Government work is pretty flexible so the work load is never overwhelming.

ConsNo opportunity for advancement. When someone gets to the point that they would be up for a raise, they will not give it or they will make a simply insulting offer. This has caused 3 of my fellow engineers to leave for other positions. Then they interviewed and hired engineers straight out of college who they could pay less.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the employees that you have and show more loyalty and appreciation of what they do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Management does… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Pros: flexible schedule, good benefits, employee recoginition Cons: long hours, lack of defined career path,, leadership not present.
