Difficult Environment
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Guildford14 September 2017
The company is going through a number of changes, and times are very difficult. Far too much work, but not enough income to resource appropriately.

The company is going through a mass shake up, so might be ok again in a few years
Cons
Lack of management, no training.

Operability Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bristol, Bristol10 July 2017
Generally a decent company to work for. Like all large companies, sometimes you feel as though it's not as reactive as it should be with too many managers.

Marine Engineer, Full Time (Current Employee) –  Portsmouth, ENG3 February 2016
> typical day would be safe and steady but it had many rush days, it had it's dry days too.
> the mechanical fitters were a varied bunch, from the quiet to the rowdy but all were good guys who got the job done primarily.
> management was mostly really good.
> the bad points to the job were the many small and awkward spaces to squeeze into with heavy equipment. but it did keep it interesting and kept me fit.
> good points were the safe working practices the yard over, great personalities and getting to work inside warships on a daily basis.
> from working in Portsmouth naval base I learned about gas turbines diesel generators and the removal and inspection of mechanical equipment.
