I have been working at Newport News Shipbuilding full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Salary is fair. Great benafits. flexible schedule

Cons

Large company environment- it may not be for someone

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although the management does pretty well at this, i think its worth stressing that we should continue exploring different ways we can have employees learn more about various sectors of shipbuilding. Each department is a completely new world.

    Hours and environmental conditions can be a bit taxing. Often times, heating and air conditioning systems are out of commission leading to hot or cold work areas.

    Be more sensitive to arduous work conditions and ensure safe recovery times along with ample breaks.

    Current Employee - Engineering Technician IV in Newport News, VA
    Current Employee - Engineering Technician IV in Newport News, VA

    I have been working at Newport News Shipbuilding full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - They have excellent benefits with matching 401K contributions, Pension, flexible hours, paid time off, healthcare (no ACA marketplace!), tuition assistance, etc...
    - Job security

    Cons

    Parking is a nightmare. Pay isn't very negotiable. HR Department is very strict about hiring for certain positions, so that even if you are very qualified for a job, if you don't meet every check-in-the-box, you can't have the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give hiring managers leaway to choose who they want to hire.
    Maybe build some more parking garages.
