    I have been working at Huntington Ingalls Industries (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is steady. Benefits aren't too bad. Great ideas come around every now and then. Really can't say too much more that's positive.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Management try's to generally intimidate craft to try push production to increase. Parking is a mess. In order to move into management it's all about who you know, not what you can and are willing to do for the company. The unions are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Slim down.

    I worked at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Building for our future military personnel with integrity and honor for our nation.

    Cons

    management is all time low. They are completely clueless and take to many short cut by ways of adjusting the time frame and lack of materials to pass the bucket for project that are not completed but lied about and cause the later foreman to take the fall for their lack of reporting the fraud of government spending.

    Advice to Management

    Take the initiative and stop the problem from growing and gain the control of the projects or Bills to make the right call and adjustment to make the job right on track easier for the future bids.

    Pros

    Ingalls is laid back as far as shipyards in the area go. The work is dirty and heavy nut that's what they pay you for. Most of the management is pretty cool. I only has an issue with one supervisor

    It's dirty. It's hot as hell in the summertime and it's freezing in the winter. No rain outs like ever for joiners. People will steel anything.nthey cut chains and locks.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people who do their job. Let people work overtime if the WANT TOO.
