    Great work schedule, slightly above average pay, excellent benefits, management makes me feel appreciated and valuable to the company.

    Cons

    Layoff is always possible with fluctuating boat sales, some overtime Saturday work, Fiberglass is irritating to the skin and takes a lot of getting used to.

    Hatteras Yachts used to be a great place to work...

    Pros

    The designers, engineers, and construction management teams were first-class, and the talented craftsmen out in the facility are tireless when properly motivated and lead. These were some of the finest people I have ever worked with. Their experience and skills are on display in the beautiful yachts and fishing vessels they produce. Pay and benefits are good for the area.

    Cons

    From 2006 – 2016 there was a precipitous drop in talent and leadership at the executive level. Too many unprepared and self-serving presidents were funneled through by Brunswick, and Versa took the worst VP of sales we ever had and promoted him to be president. At the VP level, we lost true leadership through retirement, vindictive firings, and good people getting fed up and leaving for better offers.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, friendly work environment

    Cons

    Management cannot take decisions after 4 meetings the can take one decision. When you get the interview make sure to get a good number for your salary because you won't get any rise in your salary at all. no opportunities to grow.

    Pros

    its a job if you have it. that's all I can say

    Cons

    old boy network well in place some upper management promoted based on friendships not on qualification. number 2 man at hatteras fired November 2012 because he knowingly allowed faulty hulls to proceed down line. no telling how many low quality yachts were made under Brunswick as corporate greed drove the company and crap was pushed out the door.

    Pros

    Owned by Brunswick, Hatteras has an outstanding benefits program. The end product is beautiful to look and and it gives you a sense of pride when it is completed. You'll find that you will work on many things because the job duties and be very broad, but you'll gain experience doing all sorts of activities. Hatteras also take safety very seriously and you can be assured that they are looking out for you.

    Cons

    There are many quirks about this company that cost them money and customers, but here a a few of them: One of the biggest complaints coming from most of the departments is having to do work 2 and 3 times because of a lack of timely communication, poor workmanship, poor training , inadequate inspection procedures, or the blue prints don't have the correct information. Too much labor and other resources are lost due to re-works. Hatteras also needs to update their employee performance and review procedures and only promote those who truly earn it and have demonstrated the proficiencies that are needed to keep the company competitive on a quality and cost basis. A 'good-ol-boy' system is in place and it needs to be broken for them to survive. Upper management needs to recognize this and take the necessary actions (with help from HR) to implement a stronger, or reactive management structure.

    Pros

    Location by the river and beautiful boats. Amazing artisans and hard working people.

    Cons

    Legacy within certain sectors doesn't allow for new ideas and change. Fear of job loss and lack of information sharing leads to very low morale. Many members of senior management turn a blind eye to HR issues because of long term relationships, church centered relationships, and old boy network.
