A great career experience while helping to construct the nation's largest defense platform - Aircraft Carriers.

Program Manager - IT (Former Employee)
Newport News, VA

ProsI retired recently after almost 35 years. I worked the entire time at Newport News Shipbuilding which NG spun off as a separate corporation. Working at NNS allowed me to have multiple careers in various disciplines while remaining in one location while making above average salary and benefits. Your potential is only limited by the restraints you place on yourself. NG and NNS were always open to trying a different route if you were not having success on your current path. You just had to ask and support your rationale for the change.

ConsPromotion above the supervisor and manager level are limited simply due to fewer available high level positions. If you have your sights set on being a Director, Vice President or CEO, your odds become very slim after age 35 unless you have become one of the "chosen few". If you have to ask yourself whether you are or aren't, then you aren't.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide a larger non-managerial advancement path for those not able to reach senior management positions. You need more "fellow" positions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
