Reviews

Company Culture

Over all culture is full of hate

Support from management

Everything has to be done yesterday and if it’s not done yesterday they will make sure you understand how it was entirely your fault and not there’s although after they are done telling you that your wrong. They will finally tell you what the problem is

Teamwork

Everyone forms up in groups and with in the group teamwork is great but if you have to work out of you group team work sucks

Freedom to work independently

At first they won’t let you do anything and you can (extremely) slowly yield up trust

Internal Communication

The company of cared about the good times. If it’s a bad time they won’t even bother to look at you or the issue

Gender Equality

Women are treated way better than man if they use there looks or favors to earn it. Very few women have actual real respect. But a lot of them don’t deserve it

Attitude towards older colleagues

They have age requirement of 38

Overall compensation for your work

We never earn the respect we deserve

Office / Work Environment

Constantly hot up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit. The environment is poorly lit.

Environmental Friendliness

I defiantly haven’t been told to pump oil/water into the ocean.....

Work-Life Balance

This company will work you for an entire day and say you can see them tomorrow

Job Security

Unless you are stupid, you have a job

Handicapped Accessibility

It’s not

Workplace Safety

They act like they do but it’s not safe at all

Challenging Work

It’s more of a mental than physical challenge.

Inclusive / Diverse

They only like “being diverse” to convince more people to apply to the company

Suggestions for improvement

  • Care for your employees

What I like about the company

I never said I like them

What is the company culture like at United States Navy? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Increase communication from the top down and ensure that all information is flowing up and down the chain

What I like about the company

The navy teaches you everything about your specific job but also about the history and culture of the navy and how to find out who you are.

What I dislike about the company

The communication needs to improve. We can not forget that our Sailors are our greatest asset and should be treated with dignity and respect at all times.
