    I have been working at Marinette Marine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many that I can think of. Good to get experience and get out.

    Cons

    Morale is so low that people joke about it with supervisors. Compensation and morale issues are acknowledged but "looking into it" is the response from management.

    Advice to Management

    When purchasing mistakes are made that are more costly than a yearly salary, there is no excuse to not pay employees a decent wage. Times are tough for the company (for too long) but employee retention is a huge problem that needs to be acknowledged.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for extra volunteer work.

    Cons

    Management does a poor job of communicating roles and responsibilities, additionally the company is horrible at managing programs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees and stop with the personnel cutbacks so you can develop a more mature workforce.

    Pros

    None, Not worth the effort, the headache or legal liability.

    Cons

    Managers are managed by non skilled resource secretaries. Executives misrepresent themselves to the Government. The Union still works after 4 failed attempts to reduce wages and benefits, No bonuses as promised. CEO is kept in the dark about what is actually going on under her nose.
    Plant run like a prison camp rather than a US Government Vendor.

    Advice to Management

    Open your mouths and speak the truth when asked no check is worth the lies being told to managers directors or the workers.

    I worked at Marinette Marine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only pro are the benefits and being part of shipbuilding for the US Navy.

    Cons

    Workloads are unmanageable. There have been no pay raises for salary in over 6 years while union workers get pay increases annually. The company would rather hire external candidates than promote qualified candidates from within unless you are a favorite. The current CEO has her favorites within the company and some departments are completely messed up with no structure with Italians running them. There is also no accountability for anything.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your current employees better and you will have less turnover.

    Pros

    Very fufilling to work for a company that builds such amazing ships

    Cons

    Human resources have too much control over the company. Employees are treated bad and are not compensated for the work they do. Management has no idea what is going on or how to fix it.

    Pros

    Opportunity to contribute to the defense of our country. Work with some extraordinary people who are dedicated to making a difference.

    Cons

    Decisions made in past years have placed the current leadership to face an uphill battle. Several employees / departments are left to carry the work load of reduced manning levels.

    Advice to Management

    Integrity is key, do the right thing by your most valuable resource. Treat your employees well.

    I worked at Marinette Marine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    From the outside, the company seemed very promising.... working on what appeared to be an important member of the Navy fleet in a decent area.

    Cons

    Was very unimpressed with the company, the management, and the project. It now seems that even the Navy is unimpressed with the ships, but likely not fully because of the builder. I would tell you that if you're serious about a career, don't bother here.

    Advice to Management

    Bless the people who are still working there; someone has to do the job and I'm thankful it's not me. For any professional who wants to excel in a career, please don't apply here. You will be wasting valuable seniority time you could gain elsewhere.

    I worked at Marinette Marine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not much. The people there in the lower ranks are great to work with.
    Everyone tries to do what is best but always come up short of Building a quality product. - LCS 5 is just the start of the US Navy's concerns.

    Cons

    Management is the poorest I've every seen in my 25+ years.
    Italians making an American Naval ship????? Who's idea is this??????
    Northern Wisconsin has limited fabrication common sense. The New CEO is a joke from Ford.
    She doesn't even drive American cars to work (Even though each is a brand new Asian made).
    The Directors and VPs need to go into politics Great talkers looking to fill their greedy pockets.
    Don't look for a raise it took 3 years to get 2-1/2% - Thanks.

    Advice to Management

    Step a side and let the Managers do their jobs.
    Show appreciation to the workers who earn your pay check for you.
