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

    Competitive salaries, prime contracts, flexibility.

    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.

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

    Pros

    opportunity to work on cutting edge technology, do important work

    Cons

    personnel are not valued at all. We read in the newspaper about how profits are going up, meanwhile, we are told that all raises are on hold for 3 years. People are used up and tossed aside. As a result we are entering 5-7 year projects with no one on board who has ever done a start to finish project. Leadership has no connection with those who are designing and building.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up to HR and treat your people right. Allow people to move up within the company instead of forcing them to have to leave in order to progress their career. You lose all the knowledge and experience and this hampers the entire process.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Great pay -A lot of overtime -Good benefits

    Cons

    - Mangers who do know how to do their jobs - working with majority raciest white people - The overtime pay is less then what you get an hour - People do not like changes -Competition amongst different teams in same department -They make you stupid over time

    Advice to Management

    Find mangers who know what they are doing. In my department my manger does not know anything about software development, but yet is in chaser of development. Find people who know what they are doing, do not hire an Mechanical engineer for a software engineer position. There are many of computer science majors who can do that job right.

    I have been working at Huntington Ingalls Industries full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, stability (steady paycheck), good benefits

    Cons

    -Management -Real engineering work opportunities are hard to find here. I estimate > 80% of engineering will never actually do any engineering work here. -Your opinion or what you want to do has no relevance.
