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

    Pros

    The shipyard is generally pretty good at treating its employees fairly and compensating them well. The benefits have ranges allowing people to select what works for them a la carte.

    Cons

    Many people at the shipyard stagnate and do not advance, mostly due to poor supervision. Apprentices are given preference in all hiring and promotional decisions, and outsiders often face a long hiring process due to government regulations that the company must meet.
