Purports to be a Culture of safety and employee support. However, that is not the case. Some employees call it the NASSCO two step. or the Blame game.
Support from management
NASSCO management does support the employees when everything is going well. Yet when things get tough, management reverts back to blaming the hourly employees even when the fault lies with management.
The hourly employees are the ultimate in teamwork. When a viable plan is in place all the trades come together to work as one.
Freedom to work independently
Not entirely. Management will not allow the workers to engage in creative thinking or become innovative.
The communication is sporadic unless there are upper management reps. on site and suddenly all questions are answered in a timely manner. This shows that communication could be greatly improved.
Men continue to out number females but the gap is getting better. Women are still viewed as an unknown factor.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Experience is a major factor with the seniors in many departments.
The opportunities are there. It's up to the individual employee to take them and run for it.
Overall compensation for your work
Among the several yards, it is higher but the continual rising of the medical premiums hurts badly.
Office / Work Environment
The work environment is predominantly one of tension and stress. Fear of supervisory retaliation is an underlying problem regardless of the task outcome.
This is one area where the company is a five star facility.
At this facility, work takes over EVERY facet of a shipyard workers life. It is expected that each and every employee places the company AHEAD of the family.
The image is intact, nut to those who work inside the gates, We know the image is a veil.
This is where NASSCO shines far brighter then the other yards. Far, far better
More attention should be given to those with disabilities.
NASSCO has changed this culture and has made workplace safety a Major priority. Very Good.
This is a given. It is the nature of the business.
Inclusive / Diverse
The diversity of the employee is an incredible thing here. It stimulates growth among oneself.
