    Pros

    Gibbs & Cox has a good benefits package for full time employees. It seems like if you get hired on there is a work load looking out some way

    Cons

    The cost of living in Washington DC is pretty high. This is not their fault but to live in the area of the main office a 2 bedroom apartment is 1000 minimum


  2. "An interesting work experience."

    Pros

    Working on Ships is a gratifying experince from laying the keel to seeing her in mission status. Managers are helpful and willing to teach. There is opportunity to travel internationaly and domestically but it is not necesarily required. Buisness looks good for the next couple of years and new and more interesting projects seem to be matriculating. Bonuses every year are based on company performance.

    Cons

    Smaller company not as much oportunity for growth. Salary growth is slow. Projects can be long and frustrating. There is no differentiation. Upper management can at times be a little dense. Trainging approval is difficult to acheive.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to provide goals to lower employees to work towards. Ships take a long time to design and build and work can become monotonous at times but with some kind of reward such as promotion based on performance, these times can be mitigated.
