I worked at Naval Surface Warfare Center full-time

Pros

The salary is high, esp. if you spend many years here. The benefits are adequate, and some of them are great (e.g., the amount of leave you get). It is a stable job.

Cons

This organization has a very extended bureaucracy designed to prevent engineers and scientists from doing their jobs.

Advice to Management

Get your organization out from under NAVSEA, and start creating a culture that centers on technical personnel and innovative work.

    I have been working at Naval Surface Warfare Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities to chose from as far as type of work.

    Cons

    Some department management types do not trust their employees. This was made evident by a switch that I made between departments, which was from a more trusting environment to one in which Big Brother was obviously present.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the extreme amount of paperwork required to order IT equipment. The amount of paperwork required to put in an order for less than $15,000 worth of computers is ridiculous. I'd guess that over half that amount is spent in oversight labor.
