    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule You can certainly move up in this company, but that seems mostly due to attrition. Your advancement is a function of time, not ability. It does seem senior management is making efforts to increase the benefits of working here. I also think their response to COVID-19 has been very appropriate, often implementing changes well before they become requirements. Great job outlook as they have a monopoly on nuclear ship construction.

    Cons

    Poor management. I have up to eight people that act as a manager that often conflict with on another. One will direct a certain action, while another will interrupt that action and tell you to do something else that they claim has priority. They also fail to invest in new employees. They expect a high turnover and as such will not invest in you until you have been there for some time. In my year as an employee this is the sole reason my coworkers (five) have left the company. Expect to work weekends or second/third shift on short notice. Expect to go into seven day work weeks for 2-4 weeks at a time.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you work night shift you can get away with sleeping on the job and not doing any work because they are no managers on night shift. All they care about is if you clock in. Literally all you have to do is show up. This is the laziest place you'll ever work.

    Cons

    Does not matter how good of an employee you are, or what you do (nuclear pipe welder vs janitor) you get paid the same based off of how long you've been there.

    Former Employee - Production Planner and Scheduler I 

    I worked at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits package, including 401k matching and a shutdown between Christmas and New Years, although while I was there the benefits got worse. They moved from an unlimited sick leave policy to taking your vacation when you get sick.

    Cons

    Parking is not very well managed, and if you do not get to work at least 45 minutes early and just sit in you car for a while, you run the risk of not getting a parking spot. Also this is in a very bad section of town with above average crime.
