    Pros

    You know that you make a difference to troops and their families with life saving vehicles. The pay is very good.

    Cons

    The management did not have a long-term plan for the company. The decline of MRAP sales spelled the death of Force Protection as a stand-alone company and mass layoffs with the takeover by General Dynamics. The new management team from General Dynamics is very cliquish. If you're not in the social loop, you get left behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    General Dynamics needs to keep what made FPI great but diversify the product base.

    Pros

    The pay is great compared to the area.

    Cons

    Constantly working in crisis mode and decisions my management are not consistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication and once a decision is made stick with it and do not change the policy based on who or what level the employee is at.
