It pays the bills, but being a government drone can drag you down

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bethesda, MD

ProsThe salary and benefits package is extremely competitive. Flexible work hours and plenty of vacation time.

ConsThe pay is competitive up to a point; the glass ceiling on pay bands is extremely hard to break through. Senior management doesn't seem very interested in developing lower level employees. There's a sense that younger people with excellent skills are expected to last a few years and then look elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to your best people and develop better processes and programs to motivate and retain them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ambitious people need not apply

    Engineer (Current Employee) Panama City, FL

    I have been working at Naval Surface Warfare Center


    Pros: - Government benefits are well-known to be [currently] pretty solid. - Working more than 40 hours a week is always compensated with time off or overtime… Cons: - Unfair compensation where it will take a recent graduate with a BS 5 years to reach the starting salary of someone starting with 1… Advice to Senior Management: Provide quick and easy access to tools mandatory for any engineer. Quit following and creating process for the sake of process, and question any requirement… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
