I have been working at Naval Surface Warfare Center full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent starting salary for Engineers. A lot of upward mobility for those interested. Projects are interesting. I love my job.

Cons

No place is perfect. Sometimes it seems management does not have a clue, but that's probably true in many places and maybe just my perception.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come out of your comfort zone and go out and visit your sponsors, see what is changing out there.

    Pros

    Career Development, Supportive Organization, Important Work, Satisfying, Flexible Schedules,

    Cons

    Like any government job, you need to stay on top of people when you need personnel issues taken care of, which is difficult as a new employee if you do not know how to be assertive. Congress and their budget issues effect our yearly standard of living wages, and possibility of furloughs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is supposed to assign in developing plans for individual development of new employees but do not know how to, or do not want to take the time to assist new employees.

    Flex time is available.
    Travel opportunities.
    Campus is really rather nice with cafeteria.
    Usual government benefits.
    Diversity of age of employees.

    Cons

    My eyes were opened during my time here to high level of project management in government positions. I was hired to help solve challenging new problems but most of the people I worked with just managed contractors.
