Suggestions for improvement

  • Improvement I would make is comparable pay to outside companies and private contractors we pay. If we have the mo er to pay private contractors that much then we should have that much money to pay our own people.

What I like about the company

The navy is a great place to work. No its not for everybody it takes special people willing to sacrifice their time and time with their family. It's not for everyone I will be honest there and it might be for one person in the family but not right for the family and when that's said well it's not right for that one person eaither. But you get paid ok. Healthcare dental. TSP a decent retirement it has great positives but it also has its negatives. But i would recommend working here to anybody as long and you have initiative and are ok being away from family and friends then hey it's a great place to work.

What I dislike about the company

The only thing I disapprove of it the pay. I definatly think for what we do we should be paid more. It's sad if we get out of the navy or military in general and go and work in the private sector where the military pay private contractors to do what we do they get paid 3 to 4 times mor than we do. That to me is very sad. But you still have people willing to serve their country so they do this job.

Company Culture

The job is rewarding but there is limited opportunity for upward mobility.

Support from management

The job is rewarding but there is limited opportunity for upward mobility.

Teamwork

This is expected,we received annual training on this topic, and staff has numerous resources to access of problems in this area present themselves.

Freedom to work independently

Do not require a great deal of supervision. We have a reasonable amount of latitude to determine how we accomplish our work,so long as it is within the allowance of our operating guidance.

Internal Communication

Receive an annual evaluatiom,but it is essentially a satisfactory/unsatisfactory appraisal.

Gender Equality

This is a federal government work place,it is well integrated with regard to race and gender. The workplace climate is very possitive in this regard.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The majority of workers in civil service are older,so the workplace climate is good in this area.

Career Development

Advancement is possible,but the individual must obtain the certifications themselves,and at their own cost.

Overall compensation for your work

My compensation is favorable to other positions with other companies in my geographical region. The benefits (health,insurance,etc.) are top notch

Office / Work Environment

Generally the work environment are good in this regard,but sometimes the budget does not allow for timely upgrades in technology,and some of the buildings are old and in need of repair.

Environmental Friendliness

Has active recycling activities,and has strict guidelines regarding environmental impact and in the use and disposal of hazardous materials.

Work-Life Balance

Work regular shifts,usually Monday through Friday. Have weekends and Federal Holidays off,and up to4 weeks of paid leave each year.

Company Image

Federal employees are serving their country

Job Security

Civil Service positions are very stable

Handicapped Accessibility

Most places are handicap friendly

Workplace Safety

We have a formal safety department the inspects and trains personnel on safety related issues. Safety is something that is stressed,and continually reinforced in the work centers.

Challenging Work

Job requires you to follow rules,doesn't want workers to be too imaginative.

Inclusive / Diverse

We are guided by rules and regulations,so diversity of ideas can be a bit constrained as it applies directly to the work we do.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would change the annual work force trainning programs from a reactive based trainning regimen that is geared to instructing workers to not do things that they know they shouldn't do,and are wrong (i.e. workplace violence,sexual harassment,etc.),to one that is proactive,providing more meaningful training on topics more geared to career progression,or financial strategies,etc.

What I like about the company

After serving 24 years in the military,I wasn't looking forward to entering into the civilian work force. This job has allowed me to continue serving my country as a civilian,but most of my co-workers are also prior military,so there is a cohesiveness within the work force. Working with other people with similar work and life experiences is pleasant,and the work is fulfilling.

What I dislike about the company

The company does not offer a great deal of upward mobility. If you desire advancement,you must obtain qualifications,certifications,or additional education in your own time,and at your own expence.

Company Culture

On the front, everyone loves the military, but they lie, cheat and steal to get what they want behind closed doors. There is a reason why people are leaving in droves.

Support from management

You'll have to do everything on your own, this is by far their worst quality

Internal Communication

Too many supervisors not enough team players, and they never see eye to eye.

Gender Equality

Majority of the females are given special un-official privileges ( first to promote, skipping out on hard work, taking all the credit, treated delicately etc.), while men work non stop and ridiculed if he becomes tired, depressed, or ill.

Overall compensation for your work

You will be paid more abundantly if you do not join the navy

Office / Work Environment

On board ships, it is the most depressing environment you'll ever face, It takes a strong individual to maintain peace while working in the Navy.

Environmental Friendliness

We dump our trash out in the middle of the ocean . . .

Work-Life Balance

In the Navy its just work, you don't have a lot of time for your life. I would suggest not raising a family, almost always turns out bad

Job Security

As long as you stay out of trouble, you'll keep your job.

Workplace Safety

They boast safety until under pressure then they break rules to get things done, then hide all evidence

Inclusive / Diverse

Top management are usually Caucasian from supervisors to Commanding officers. they try to diversify on paper but at each command they promote only who they like

Suggestions for improvement

  • This organization need to work on their treatment to employees, they are treated like cattle

What I like about the company

Experience to entry level jobs can be attained here

What I dislike about the company

Their treatment of the staff, ranking up here gives you the ability to treat others terribly and access to favoritism. The company is sexist and racist, and to keep their global image they will hide these problems.
