    I have been working at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start a career. Overtime pay and flexible hours. Work is usually easy.

    Cons

    The work is not going to be at the cutting edge of engineering. Its fairly basic work. Most of the engineers don't do any actual engineering. Lots of paper pushing.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows its competing for talent against the rest of the country, currently talent seems to be discouraged. The reason people stayed in the past was locally EB is the best, but to a non-local the job search is probably across the country not across southern Connecticut.
