  1. "it was great until it wasnt"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - NQC3 in Newport News, VA

      I worked at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      steady work and security. Overtime is usually available if you want a little extra cash

      Cons

      undervalues good employees and villianizes anyone that gets a hotline call even if unfounded in the end

      Advice to Management

      Pay your people what they're worth. If you have an employee that finds themselves seriously behind people in lower grades of a job, you should try to correct it.

      Former Employee - Nuclear Engineer in Newport News, VA
      Doesn't Recommend
      Neutral Outlook
      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.

      Just bought by HII, we'll need to see how things go.

      Advice to Management

      Too many negative changes to benefits may cause an exodus, tread lightly.
