    Pros

    Very well structured with lots of online training courses to get one familiar and informed about policies within the company as well as the Government. Seemed there was a real potential for growth. Enjoyed working with a great bunch of people throughout the entire company in Charleston, SC It's the people that make it great.

    Cons

    One of the biggest challenges was to filter all the rumors flying around as to what the companies future looked like and not knowing how many would be laid off the next time around. Apparently, this is the reality of working for a government contractor.

    Advice to Management

    The decisions which you make, I certainly hope that your looking out for the people who really produce the end product and not just your management teams. How unfortunate that so many jobs were lost here in Charleston, only to be sent to Canada.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very brief process. They only asked me 5 or so questions before asking me if I had any questions. It was a phone interview with 3 veteran program managers I may be working with at some point. The whole thing lasted about 30 minutes and went great. Got a call with an offer a week later for a program management intern position.
