About Us - Our Culture

Culture at General Dynamics Electric Boat

General Dynamics Electric Boat's ethos is our distinguishing moral nature. Our employees are a community of people dedicated to this ethos. Each of us has an obligation to behave according to our values. In that way, we can ensure that we continue to be good stewards of the investments in us by our shareholders, customers, employees and communities, now and in the future.

Key to our success as a company is the culture we embody: the values we hold, the heroes we look to, the communication we foster, and traditions. Electric Boat has a long history of tracking employees’ careers as they develop within their roles, and formally marking their progress. We continually seek to cultivate an open cultural network through mentoring, open forums and more, breaking down the communication barriers in our company's hierarchy. Our heroes, those individuals who stand out as living examples of best practices, embody our core values and lead others to follow their example. We identify our core values and deliver this message to our workers to ensure that everyone is doing their part to help our company excel.

Core Values


Electric Boat employs the most skilled and experienced workforce in the shipbuilding industry. It is this workforce that enables our company to maintain its out-standing record, continually delivering submarines on time and under budget.


At Electric Boat, we design and build our submarines to meet the stringent requirements set by our Navy customer to ensure they can perform the many missions required of them while protecting the ship and its crew operating the most hostile of environments.


Nuclear submarines are one of the most advanced machines on Earth. The high demands placed on our product are reflected by the un-wavering commitment to first-time quality and safety to which each employee is committed.
