    I worked at Marinette Marine as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good money and good co-workers. But I watched several really good foreman get let go, for no REAL reason...except maybe they didn't play the political game!

    Cons

    Bad (really bad) SR leadership // politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit letting the good/hard workers go without more investigation. LISTEN to the people in the yard!

    I have been working at Marinette Marine full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    None worthy of public mention.

    Cons

    Horrible management. I've alway excelled in every company I've worked for except for here. They beat down their workforce continuously. MMC is in huge financial trouble. Fincantieri is paying payroll out of pocket because they can't sustain themselves. Not a bright future here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your poor culture and stop being part of the problem. Listen to the guys building the boats. They know their jobs better than you do.

    I worked at Marinette Marine

    Pros

    passing weld test and x-ray test at NWTC in Marrinette.

    Cons

    Once you pass your test your sent out in the yard where they don't train you. Good Ole Boy system. Hardest job I ever worked at. All welds have to be perfect no flaws what so ever. Hard to do when no one is showing you what they want or show you the wrong way. Very high turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop production and build from the ground up on everything.

    I worked at Marinette Marine full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There aren't any. If you have to live in the area, then it's a possible place to work.

    Cons

    Terrible pay.
    Next to non-existent raises: 2% raise in 4 years of hard labor.
    Arduous review process that measures nothing. And it doesn't affect your pay so who cares.
    Little to no possibility for advancement.
    Spirit crushing workload and working environment.
    Constant policy/procedure changes assures no one knows what to do or what the status of anything is.
    Constant policy/procedure changes means your work scope changes every day, usually getting larger.
    Lack of skilled labor. (My apologies to the few guys that know what they're doing.)
    High number of contractors with little accountability.
    Friction between all departments. I'm not exaggerating.
    Myopic management with little accountability for their decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't consider management worthy of my advice much less the positions they hold and the salaries they earn.

    Pros

    Close to home
    very nice receptionist

    Cons

    to get IT to assist with anything was like pulling teeth...
    alot of swearing from managers
    a lot of the managers didn't get along with each other...back stabbing
    hostile work environment
    did not work as a team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach your managers how to act and how to treat each other with respect. A manager should not be allowed to sit in his office and scream out the "F" bomb serval times a day.

    I worked at Marinette Marine full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent health benefits with onsite medical, chiropractor and physical therapy. Excellent vision and dental benefits. Promising industry. Ample vacation/personal days.

    Cons

    Unprofessional attitudes from those in leadership roles. Too much conflict of interest between leaders. Inability to properly handle harassment and bullying. Most employees look at their days to see what is in it for them and will stop at nothing to further themselves regardless if it is best for the company or not. Far too many double standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct proper investigations. Review all accusations of misconduct and ensure there is specific proof. Enforce a warning system for issues of misconduct in which all parties are made aware and sign off. All leaders must notify HR immediately of any reports of harassment or bullying. Keep leaders in check and ensure their interests are best for the company. Enforce penalties for conflicts of interest and double standards.

    I worked at Marinette Marine full-time

    Pros

    Good Health Benefits, saying I quit

    Cons

    If you are salary you are screwed. Management will work you 12 hour days whether there is work or not because they can. The ones that work the 12 hour days and know what they are doing get no appreciation. The ones that work 8 hours and know nothing well continue to know nothing and work 8 hours. Management is so unorganized and treat their employees like rags. No incentives for work done well. It is a sweat shop and if you are smart you will stay far away from this company. Right now it is the Italians who own the company putting their twist on it which gets no good results and the Union Contractors fighting with the non union contractors. There is no team playing and as said before no training. You get no training but if you make a mistake they will march you up to HR and say you are not a good learner. Worst Company I ever worked for. However also as said before the best CON was calling up and saying I am not coming back. They will kill you, step over you and work the rest of the crew that much harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smarting up. Your employees is what makes the Company work. Treat them better.
