    Pros

    Worked with a great team, supporting a great cause! Compensation was very competitive and coworkers were helpful and willing to take time during the learning curve.

    Cons

    My only complain was that I was injured on the job and had to use my own vacation time while I was out of work. Was not eligible for workers compensation for some reason, which I didnt really understand.

    Pros

    My experience with GD was that GD is interested in engineering success. I found this company to be very interested in meeting goals and, conversely, not so involved in internal politics as is common with other companies. This company was a breath of fresh air where everyone worked to make things work, as opposed to other companies where engineers work to build and maintain empires.

    Cons

    I only worked for GD for 2 years. I would have to concoct a "CON" here. I guess the only CON is that I don't work for them now.

    Advice to Management

    ...no advice.

    Pros

    Top notch organization, with highly capable individuals. Positive work environment with good personal to work balance.

    Cons

    Defense industry down and makes for an unsettled/insecured atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Too much politics in the decision making. Heavy weighting of decisions to the east coast portion of the organization for no reason other than its the east coast portion of the organization (which oddly enough is where the executive management are from.
