    I have been working at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Interesting environment. Awesome life-work balance with flex-time opportunity. Management is supportive and not at all overbearing. Upward movement seems almost immanent for anyone dedicated to doing their job.

    Cons

    Steep learning curve for those not akin to the industry. Typical troubles you would expect for a giant such as this as far as communication and cohesiveness within the company is concerned.
