    Pros

    Time off, compensation and other benefits

    Cons

    Management, disgruntled employees, favoritism, lack of support

    Advice to Management

    Connect with employees and provide them support and guidance rather than simply directing work and deflecting blame.

    Pros

    None sadly. Absolutely nothing positive in the culture.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Corruption, favoritism, retaliation, liars, evilness at every management level. If you're not in the good old boys club don't expect promotions or awards. Rampant sexual harassment and assault goes unpunished (except for the victims getting punished). Violation of every EEO law then reprisals against those who file claims.

    I have been working at NAVFAC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive wages, excellent benefits, flexible time off.

    Cons

    Not enough room in this box! Management has zero skills which trickles down to Supervisors and Work Leaders. No one stands up for the professional and always takes the customers side when inaccurate reports are called in by customers. Morale is ZERO! Everyone is tired of being lied to and the most unqualified personnel receive management positions based on who they know not what they know. Responsibilities are thrown onto lower level workers because unqualified higher level positions don't understand their jobs but pat themselves on the back and take full credit every opportunity they can.

    Advice to Management

    Get educated with management skills! At least try and make the workers believe you care about them. Try hiring someone you don't know and maybe things will start to work better.

    Pros

    Used to be good. No more.

    Cons

    Lead by a bigoted criminal.

    Advice to Management

    I am management, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone while we are lead by a corrupt dishonest criminal. Oh, and we can same some taxpayer dollars by eliminating ethics training. They are pointless with a corrupt leader.

    I worked at NAVFAC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are supervisor most of them sit around and do nothing play on your computer in the office, a lot of blue collar workers don't know their job position. Employees working overtime always scam an extra hour or two on their timesheet. Nobody uses time clocks anymore.

    Cons

    Working with coworkers that don't know their job and cannot carry their own way. A lot of rework, mental exhaustion more so than physical.

    Advice to Management

    Contract out everything to the Providence Center, majority of the workers are lazy.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Some locations are laid back, jeans and sneakers. Most offices are the casual cubicle farm environment while other locations are business formal and uncomfortable is you're a jeans person but great if you're a suit and tie kind of guy.

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement some departments fall extremely behind after a year when all of their 7's and 9's get time and grade and move on. Then the process begins all over again hiring and training new people while trying to get caught up.

    Advice to Management

    create more pay-grades for the workforce to transition into so they don't have to leave
