    I have been working at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good, probably the best on the MS coast, along with their benefits. My current foreman is really great compared to my previous two foremen (whom had come from the Avondale shipyard when they closed it).

    Cons

    Parking, traffic, the long, long, LONG walk from the parking lot to your work station across every type of terrain you can imagine, and the many flights of stairs. As a combo electrician there are a lot of tools and PPE that I have to carry, adding to a lot of weight. All of these combined is what has caused my plantar fasciitis. Plus, the work conditions can be considered dangerous if you're not watching out. (As of this writing, I think that they are in the beginning phases of redoing the road infrastructure in / out of the parking lots to Highway 90... site surveys and new signs went up yesterday.)

    Time is also a Con... I spend about 13-14 hours a day between leaving my home in the morning and coming home, but only get paid for 8. I live about an hour away. In order to get a decent parking spot, I leave my home at 3:30am, park my car as close as I can (currently at Gate 2) at around 4:20am, and nap until 5:00am. You have to be in through the gates by a specific time and at your work station at 6am or they dock your pay (even if you got to your work station by 6am, if you're not through the gates by a specific time (which they don't tell you what that time is), you get docked). After work, I make the long, long, LONG trek back to my car and sit in a hot car waiting in traffic for about 20-45 minutes (minimum), then drive the hour back to my home. I could leave home later and get there by 5:30a, but then my walk in / out of work is double the distance.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the traffic issue (which I think you're just starting to), fix all of the parking lots, and provide shuttles in / out of the yard. Fix the terrain in the yard. Go digital with the drawings, material ordering, payroll, and communications.

    Pros

    Very friendly coworkers, management is friendly, new challenges daily, yearly merit raises, and a great learning environment for new engineers.

    Cons

    30 minute lunch (the flexible schedule allows for longer break sometimes) and some of the offices could use some updating.

    I worked at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Just don't get injured, not use in yard hospital, esp. Placed on workers comp. They say and plaster posters all over about workers comp fraud. But they are the FRAUDSTERS ! the yard will fire you on workers comp. And none of the bought out , paid off attorneys in Mississippi, nor any Federal agency, D O.L., under W.C. or F.M.L.A. will do anything but drag their feet and side with shipyard ! Many injured and left to rot and loose everything . Including last spec if respect for self !

    Cons

    They post and display like they care about employees. They hire and keep bad employees while good ones carry load, repair their garbage, management is on good ole boy merit system. Union is in - house, and like local lawyers, part of INGALLS team. D.O.L. aides and abets in the yards crushing and grinding injured/wronged employees. And the parking is hellacious, lasts over hour, and vehicles are regularly damaged seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Do as you say. Support and assist those injured making YOUR PAYCHECKS. Not fire and leave to pain & inevitable financial ruin !
       Look at RE-FITS! WHOSE FIXING, And who's causing/costing. And WHO enables/continues allowing process and employees at fault.
       Enforce lift limits, against supervision.

    I worked at Huntington Ingalls Industries as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The opportunity to influence change in the ship building process and the ability to be involved in process improvement initiatives.

    Cons

    Have to deal with being pulled in multiple directions at one time making it a challenge to focus on one particular issue

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow interns to go through rotations within the quality department.

    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.
