I worked at Naval Surface Warfare Center full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I can't think of any

Cons

Inefficient HR, rampant nepotism, promotions are based on getting chummy with the right people, not merit

Advice to Management

Poor management is what's wrong with this command and I highly doubt any of them will be leaving or bettering themselves for the benefit of the command.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Naval Surface Warfare Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent starting salary for Engineers. A lot of upward mobility for those interested. Projects are interesting. I love my job.

    Cons

    No place is perfect. Sometimes it seems management does not have a clue, but that's probably true in many places and maybe just my perception.

    Advice to Management

    Come out of your comfort zone and go out and visit your sponsors, see what is changing out there.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Naval Surface Warfare Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Career Development, Supportive Organization, Important Work, Satisfying, Flexible Schedules,

    Cons

    Like any government job, you need to stay on top of people when you need personnel issues taken care of, which is difficult as a new employee if you do not know how to be assertive. Congress and their budget issues effect our yearly standard of living wages, and possibility of furloughs.

    Advice to Management

    Management is supposed to assign in developing plans for individual development of new employees but do not know how to, or do not want to take the time to assist new employees.
