My Home

Senior Staff Hardware Engineer (Current Employee)
Needham, MA

I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat place to work, been here 32 years. Lots of interesting programs to work on. Great pay and benefits. Family Atmosphere. Happy customers that keep coming back, even when there are problems. Great technology.

ConsThe company is suffering from the current decrease in defense spending. Hopefully that will turn around soon.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide employees with a rotation program so they can experience more of what C4S has to offer. More group and one-on-one communication with management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Dedicated to the Nation's security

Management (Current Employee)

I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe work is incredibly important to protecting our soldiers and to the security of our citizens. While managing some difficult market headwinds, the amazing employees remain committed to the cause and they bring it every day.

ConsNatural market ebb and flow has required the closing of several facilities and unwelcome downsizing decisions. All businesses eventually face market downturns and this too shall pass.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going and guts it out. Value and retain your best employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Govt Cuts Hurt

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat salary and benefits. Very interesting defense-type work. Good people, very professional. Hours are flexible and accommodating. Work-life balance is encouraged.

ConsBecause of cutbacks in govt funding, layoffs are common place. Workloads have increased substantially in the last 3 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecommend sharing the wealth from other parts of the company to support the R&D in the emerging areas where C4 has core expertise and years of experience. Focus more effort on winning new business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
