I have been working at General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems

Pros

There are great people to work with. There are some really smart dedicated folks building our systems. The satellites have interesting problems to solve and require cutting edge engineering to make them work right. Working on the satellites you can make a real contribution to science and you can see that contribution in the news on a regular basis.

Cons

The company is facing challenging business prospects. New system starts are irregular and I'm not sure when the next systems will start. Our local business is different from the rest of the company and national leadership doesn't always understand the differences

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More focus and resources on business development, more time and resources for professional development, less energy on making sure everything is consistent across the national company

    Pros

    Initial Pay Offers, This is a great place to really bump up your salary to an acceptable level if your currently stuck in a lower paying engineering job.

    Cons

    The knowledge gap of the older members who are soon to retire is getting worse. As more of those members retire this will become a more serious problem. There is so much process involved with everything that you can end up doing management duties as a general developer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Justify cutting all pay raises for a year, just because the stock market is down you should not cut all raises. You can't keep hiring new people to meet the demands of our many new government contracts and also not give the current employees raises. Maybe offer more incentives as an alternative.
