​Our Heritage:

General Dynamics C4 Systems (GDC4S) has more than 50 years of experience providing secure command, control, computing, communication and information solutions that integrate custom-developed and commercial off-the-shelf products for the military and commercial markets.

GDC4S began as part of Sylvania Electric Products in the early 1950s. In 1959 Sylvania merged with General Telephone to become General Telephone and Electronics Corporation (GTE).

In June 1999, GTE and General Dynamics announced General Dynamics’ acquisition of three divisions of GTE Government Systems Corporation. On September 1, 1999, GSC became General Dynamics Government Systems Corp., an operating unit of General Dynamics within the Information Systems and Technology (IS&T) group.

In 2001, General Dynamics acquired Motorola’s Integrated Information Systems Group (IISG). The business was named General Dynamics Decision Systems, Inc., and reported through the Information Systems and Technology (IS&T) group, one of four primary business segments within General Dynamics. Following the Motorola IISG acquisition, nine IS&T units were consolidated into four. General Dynamics Communication Systems was selected as the core organization for one of the new business units, and became General Dynamics C4 Systems (GDC4S).


Programs We Support:

Military: We develop the Soldier’s Network – an integrated suite of programs to deliver voice and data services to our nation’s soldiers in austere environments. A foundational part is the GD-developed Warfighter Information Network – Tactical program, which provides soldiers a secure network that keeps them connected to one another and to their commanders, increasing their safety and improving mission effectiveness.

Space: Some of our systems are helping to discover the origins of the universe while others manage and control NASA's most advanced telecommunication satellites.

Department of Homeland Security: Using 21st century technologies, we placed a revolutionary search and rescue system into the hands Coast Guard professionals. Covering more than 42,000 miles of coastline, the Rescue 21 system has enabled the rescue of thousands of distressed mariners and their families.

Public Safety: We are among the first companies to deliver Long Term Evolution (LTE) user equipment to first responders. Working with Adams County in Colorado, our products and technologies will deliver next-generation broadband capabilities to public safety personnel. This means unprecedented access to streaming video, remote data access and information sharing.

    I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very rewarding work. I feel like my job has a direct impact on the company's mission and goals. I know that others in the company also feel that their work contributes directly to the needs of the warfighter, that what their doing saves lives. I'm very satisfied with my work when I go home at the end of the day, and that's a great feeling.

    Cons

    This is a big company, and with a big company comes a lot of management. Though the company has had to restructure, they have done so to make the business more efficient. Many complain about that change, but I see it as business-is-business. What are you going to do? All companies behave that way, they're simply looking to protect their future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and open with your employees, they can take it. It's when you're quiet that they fill in the gaps with rumors and horrible comments.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Dynamics C4 Systems.

    Interview Details

    I had 3 interviews that were each about 45 minutes long. Each person I met with was incredibly nice and easy to get along with. They didn't ask much technically at all, but more described their respective projects and then asked if I were interested. Then they would ask some basic background/ability questions but nothing that was difficult to answer.

    Interview Questions
    • None, they were all really background and experience questions.   Answer Question
