Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Thousand Oaks, CA

I have been working at General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Location, friendly co-workers, parking, building has other young companies in it and movies get filmed there

Cons

benefits are unacceptable and been going downhill for the last 7 years. No raises in the last 4+ years. Corporate restricts internet heavily. No more retirement. No sick time. Continuing to reduce PTO. No paid overtime. Lack of social atmosphere. Management is aloof and unaware of what most employees skills and daily tasks. Corporate implements very controlling change and reduced benefits based on reasons of "security" or "cost". Travel policies state employees have to stay at Marriotts and take the absolute lowest fair. If you work a 60hr week, the first 10 hours must be "donated" to the company even though they charge the customer for it. Health care is almost the same as paying cash. No education reimbursement. Just a completely different company over the past 7 years, and not one way better

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See above. Think about the employees. Stop sending out monthly "this is how great our company is" while reducing benefits, doing layoffs and asking us how to cut costs.

    Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist in Ypsilanti, MI

    I worked at General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, intelligent co-workers, good pay, okay benefits, room for advancement if you're at the start of your career, good employee recognition, fair treatment, paid overtime for salaried employees (usually ... project dependent)

    Cons

    Feels like you're a tiny cog in a vast machine, when upper management decisions actually do have an impact on you it's usually a negative one, limited senior technical positions are open, less and less opportunity for employees to be creative and try new ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a week shadowing technical staff members to gain some insight into the effect you have on their roles
