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

Pros

It's very easy to have pride in your work. The customer has their requirements and each discipline has their own requirements and its up to each individual team member to balance all of those with their own.

Cons

Senior management may have lost perspective on what employees need and want. Also, a few people will do things like go to lunch when they shouldn't which ends up affecting everyone with a company-wide policy change (which is still better than if that same problem had been found by the Navy instead of an internal audit, but still)

Advice to Management

FIX PARKING. STOP DEFLECTING THESE ISSUES.

    I worked at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The money was good for High School graduates or less. The work was fairly simple. Good oppurtunity to move around the company and get some new skills. Get to work on submarines. Raises are fairly regular and decent. 401K match and health benefits are great.

    Cons

    Negativity everywhere. No one likes working there, and complains constantly. In management, it is very cutthroat. A lot of backstabbing. No one works together at the mid to upper levels of managment.
    Front line supervisors are used up without regard for the long term. Sick time usage expected to be <1%. Two weeks Vacation. Lots of unpaid overtime.
    There is no attempt to bring lazy or substandard workers up to speed, they can get away with murder if they feel like it. People get raises every 6 months whether they are hardworking and good at what they do, or not. Discipline for infractions is non existent, HR is not in control of the company the way they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture.


  2. "Extremely rewarding job with great benefits."

    I have been working at General Dynamics Electric Boat full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Retirement plan and 401k not many jobs include these two.

    Cons

    Tight spaces, promotions are going great with expedience

    Advice to Management

    Training should be longer with weekly reviews, qualification with exams and oral boards. Increase management equal opportunity issues.
