I worked at General Dynamics Electric Boat as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Guaranteed employment for years to come, plenty of job security, descent health and dental

Cons

Union designers carry over a shipyard mentality into an office atmosphere. Great entry level salary but horrible increases

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the Unions and give young people meaningful work

    I have been working at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You can basically pick your direction. If you want to climb in the company, there are options available to do that. If you want to sit and do next to nothing for the work week, they have jobs for that too. It's a big company with a lot of resources and internal job opportunities. The product is great too.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of appreciation for those who work hard. Parking isn't great. Business is subject to the fluctuations of military contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time recognizing those who work the hardest. Do this more frequently.

    Pros

    Benefits, and the people around here. My group is very informative and work well together. The wealth of knowledge and ability to learn from others here is incredible.

    Cons

    Location, kind of unfortunate area of New London, but things have been improving. I hear of slow promotion and raises as well, but don't know first hand yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As usual, if its true, promote or issue raises based on merit as opposed to length of time worked there.
