    I have been working at Naval Surface Warfare Center

    Pros

    - Many different departments/project areas
     - Flexible work schedule
     - Easy to switch positions once working here
     - Good benefits package

    Cons

    - Lacking promotions for mid-level employees with 3-10 years work experience
     - Too much inefficiency caused by bureaucratic red tape

    Advice to Management

    As current employees directly for feedback regarding promotions, work assignments, and training programs. Too many issues are caused by lack of feedback between the policy makers and the people who must follow these policies in everyday work.
