Listen to your employees' needs and stop transferring problem employees...fire them!

    I have been working at Bechtel Marine Propulsion full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job stability: you will not lose your job, even if you stop working.

    Cons

    There are many people who do not work here, just come in every day and collect a pay check. Security rules require you to leave your personal cell phone at home and significantly limits internet access. Pay is low.

    Advice to Management

    Fire people who are not working and reword people who are with raises.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Bechtel Marine Propulsion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    3 Weeks of Vacation Plus 9/80 Schedule. Some managers try to mitigate all of the cons, but they can't stop a tidal wave.

    Cons

    Very Low Pay, Depressing work environment, Too many rules to follow. No fitness center or other work-related perks.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management needs to realize that the labs are not to be run like the Navy or the Shipyards or MTS. They are full of creative engineers at the top of their career, and not naive Sailors who need to be micromanaged. Management also must find a way to cut the massive amount of deadweight, and compensate the workers who are at the top of the productivity curve. Giving out a maximum of 3-4% raises every two years to your top employees will not lead to a productive work environment during the long term.
