    Pros

    Great people. The people are what make it awesome place to work. Everyone is welcoming and inviting. The company culture is also super awesome.

    I don't believe there is anything bad about it. I have enjoyed working there every day and am thankful for all the experience I have gained working there.

    Advice to Management

    Hire talented people and the company will keep on growing. Keep pursuing business that keep the company growing.

    Pros

    Strong ethics expected and performed. Contracts for important work for US and international security. New focus on strong cultural values.

    Cons

    Too early to say whether the promise of Mission Systems (combination of AIS and C4S) will really happen. ELT still has some members that don't appear to be aligned to new mission, culture, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Make the vision of GDMS a reality! Make the right decisions; be courageous.

    Pros

    Large company that provides stable employment, good benefits, and a decent salary. Majority of coworkers are easy to with with.

    Cons

    Seemingly a lack of accountability; there are some engineers who don't know the basics, or perhaps don't care, but in either case they never seen to be held accountable for not doing their tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight and promote those who are doing a great job more quickly. Don't let the job descriptions prevent you from promoting young engineers who are worth way more.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to do important work. With the right manager and the right attitude, there are opportunities for growth and learning in the direction of your interests. The key is to be proactive. Professional development is not a primary focus of the company, but the opportunities do exist if you seek them out.

    Cons

    Salary is not as competitive as it could be. Fair raises and promotion salary increases are hard faught. Without a struggle, they don't pay attention to compensation. 3% maximum, often less.

    Pros

    Great Contractor General Dynamics Mission Systems is the prime contractor for the U.S Army tactical communication networks. I received excellent reviews of my work ethics fro the Director of Quality and my immediate Supervisor

    Cons

    My contract ended due to slowdown of Incoming Material to Inspect

    Advice to Management

    To retain Contract hires to enable chances to become Full Time GDMS employees

    Pros

    Benefits are top notch, working schedule is 9/80 so you get every other Friday off, which allows more work/life balance.

    Cons

    Working under contract can get ridiculous and iffy. Advancement means moving from current location depending on the size of the team you have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your door open to your workers and mingle as much as time permits.

    Pros

    Most projects have depressed managers who won't ask you to work more than the minimum 40 hours because they themselves are tired of it.

    Cons

    If you want to be more than a code monkey, you have ambition, want to take on more responsibility or lead, then look elsewhere. They are just looking for people to crank out code right now and have no money or space on projects for anyone who wants to do more than that.

    Advice to Management

    Invest money in building up your employees so they are more inclined to invest back in the company.
