I worked at General Dynamics Electric Boat as an intern for less than a 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

Get rid of the Unions and give young people meaningful work

    I have been working at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time for 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.

    Area is not for younger individuals, many employees become complacent and make it difficult to work with them, not for foreign nationals or any non US citizens
