Pros

HII, specifically Newport News Shipbuilding is a very stable company with lots of opportunity. Shipbuilding is a very unique and interesting business. Hard work is recognized within the company.

Cons

Budgets are tied to government spending and operations can sometimes feel stifled by large amount of formalization of rigid hierarchy. It is also easy to get lost in the shuffle and many are able to float by without much effort.

    Pros

    Have been able to do different things over the years. Very interesting and rewarding work at times. Benefits in the past have been good, now they are just fair.

    Cons

    Future business outlook looks bleak. Near term promotion outlook bleak and job security looks bleak. Politically correct HR policy. (ex. Mentor program, etc. obviously includes certain groups, and excludes others). Compliant management promoted, visionary management need not apply. Implements processes for the sake of process, with little feedback as to effectiveness. Union WF overhead/appeasement is a burden on bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide vision and direction. Stop being reactionary. Develop a plan and execute it. Develop your employees too. Not just CYA training. Stop providing excuses for people to be non-productive, with rice bowl and charge number tactics. Also, stop placing all the burden on the workers for decipher charging instructions. It is seldom clear and obvious. We want to work, stop making it difficult for us to do our "REAL" job of building great ships.
