I have been working at Naval Surface Warfare Center

Pros

Relaxed atmosphere. There really is no pressure to do well. If you want to just come to work and do nothing; bingo.

Cons

The company is structured to assist the US NAVY. However, to do anything, it takes two years minimum before you can actually physically install a software/hardware or mechanical device that may help improve the sailor's operational experience or to save fuel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to actually improve your employees and help advance their careers push for everyone at the company to have a FE and masters degree.
