I have been working at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Retirement plan and 401k not many jobs include these two.

Cons

Tight spaces, promotions are going great with expedience

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Training should be longer with weekly reviews, qualification with exams and oral boards. Increase management equal opportunity issues.

    I worked at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The money was good for High School graduates or less. The work was fairly simple. Good oppurtunity to move around the company and get some new skills. Get to work on submarines. Raises are fairly regular and decent. 401K match and health benefits are great.

    Cons

    Negativity everywhere. No one likes working there, and complains constantly. In management, it is very cutthroat. A lot of backstabbing. No one works together at the mid to upper levels of managment.
    Front line supervisors are used up without regard for the long term. Sick time usage expected to be <1%. Two weeks Vacation. Lots of unpaid overtime.
    There is no attempt to bring lazy or substandard workers up to speed, they can get away with murder if they feel like it. People get raises every 6 months whether they are hardworking and good at what they do, or not. Discipline for infractions is non existent, HR is not in control of the company the way they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the culture.

    I worked at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time

    Pros

    Flexible time.
    Overtime for salary employee at 1.5 rate can boost your pay.
    Gym on site.
    Good 401k plan.

    Cons

    Culture needs improvement.
    Vacation is two weeks for ten years.
    Yearly Raises are at or below inflation, essentially an adjustment rather than an increase.
    Slow promotions.
    Mediocre health insurance plans. Either high deductible or high copayment.
    Parking in NL is problematic if you are not an early bird.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not going to bother. They have their own ideas.
