Job is Secure, you will never move up or down
Naval Architect (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PASeptember 10, 2015
McKean has moved up from a small business into the large business category. The management system is completely unable to compete in this environment. They do not look out for their employees, in fact they get raises based on number of hires per year (regardless of how many people leave). The constant turn around means that nobody has the knowledge or skills to pass on to the next group of new hires. If you are looking to build a career and learn from people with more experience, this is not the place for you.

Furthermore, it is common for employees to be promoted based on no merit. One employee was brought to HR on multiple occasions due to harassment of the younger engineers regardless of if they even worked with him. Then not more than 6 months after the latest incident he got promoted to be a program manager.

If you're looking for a place to start your career this is not it. Nobody will teach you and you will be talked about behind your back for anything you may not know/understand. If you're an engineer just out of school there are plenty of better opportunities out there that will help improve on your career and even pay you more.
Pros
Owners are nice
Cons
management is awful, no upward mobility, no engineering

Enjoyable government contractor position
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 30, 2012
As the leader of the LSV-1 class on a dynamic engineering team, I have gained experience and knowledge of the Army Watercraft fleet. Weekly team meetings and periodic travel to Army vessels helps the team work cohesively both in and out of the office.
Pros
great coworkers, flexible time, interesting travel locations
Cons
unexpected travel (infrequent but it happens), not enough social events
