I have been working at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Benefits, and the people around here. My group is very informative and work well together. The wealth of knowledge and ability to learn from others here is incredible.

Cons

Location, kind of unfortunate area of New London, but things have been improving. I hear of slow promotion and raises as well, but don't know first hand yet.

Advice to Management

As usual, if its true, promote or issue raises based on merit as opposed to length of time worked there.

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

    Pros

    Stable employment and good salary. Plenty of opportunities to make lateral moves to other projects and programs if you are not satisfied with what you are doing.

    Cons

    Difficult for mid-career people who have not grown up in the company to advance. Culture is a bit resentful to people who did not start at the company. Management style is somewhat bureaucratic and arcane. Quality of managers and supervisors can be hit and miss.

    Advice to Management

    Improve salaried employee benefits such as vacation time. 40 hours annually for the first 10 years of employment is not comparable with the industry.
