      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Stability, benefits are good, requires minimal effort to succeed

      Cons

      Pay is terrible at NNS. Management is poor. No growth opportunities (in my experience, NNS does not value technical or problem solving abilities). If you are technical or want to do engineering work, do not work here.

      Advice to Management

      My direct management was continually incompetent. Good people, but should never have been in a technical role and/or leadership role.

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

      Pros

      The best part of working here is the people. Very upbeat, intelligent people to be around. It’s a very steady job.

      Cons

      Parking is very stressful, the hours are demanding and the projects are understaffed.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on properly manning projects. Offer more benefits for backshift work and on-call demands.

      Very low stress, you can sit on you’re butt for many years and do just fine.

      Cons

      Little chance for promotion unless you are a minority or know someone

      I have been working at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Opportunity to work in any number of facets in industry. The makings of a small city, an individual with a Bachelors can go from design, to research, to construction, to regulation.

      Cons

      Lateral movement has been encouraged as of late, but upward movement is slow.

      Steady employment and Job safety.

      Cons

      Do not value employees enough.

      Advice to Management

      Compensate your employees properly.

      I worked at Huntington Ingalls Industries for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Good benefits, some fun experiences, paid training.

      Cons

      Dangerous, sexist workers with little or no over site, dangerous parking in city areas with no lighting or security. Against the law to carry mace or anything to protect yourself with-against company policy. Downtown area crime ridden, lots of theft from cars, no response from security or law enforcement. Sexual harassment blown off as typical of shipyard workers. LOW pay for many jobs that take extreme training hard...

      Advice to Management

      Give the management jobs to people with actual experience not just to fill quotas. Very inexperienced people move ahead for those obvious reasons and leave the rest of us to do their work.

      I have been working at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Great people. I really enjoy the people. Many have become great friends or even like family. Benefits are great, for the most part.

      Cons

      Cons depend on what department or division you work in. Pay raises don't trickle down to low level employees. Upward mobility can be hard if you aren't in the good ole boys club.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to the lower level employees more often.

      I worked at Huntington Ingalls Industries for less than a year

      Pros

      The pay and benefits were pretty good, and the work schedule was somewhat flexible. I worked in a building away from the yard, so parking was good.

      Cons

      The commute is awful from just about anywhere, but that's also Hampton Roads in general. The biggest turn off for me was the constant antagonism between the various departments and also the trades. It seemed like nobody ever wanted to work together. There was also a lot of antagonism with the Navy, the only customer. There's no diversity in their business, so if the Navy ever slows down its work (like currently) then...

      Advice to Management

      I saw a lot of projects come and go because management wasn't behind them. There was little drive at the management level to actually do any process improvement. I saw a lot of lip service paid to the Navy. Agreements would be made to do process improvement, but then they would slowly die off from lack of involvement.
