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

Pros

Many advancement opportunities, many learning opportunities. Flexible schedule and decent benefits. Great people to work with and you will make many friends. The work is fun but also challenging. Performance reviews can be utilized for your own personal career growth.

Cons

Layoffs / work forecast directly affected by yearly Federal defense budget. If there are delays in the budget being passed, the company doesn't receive anticipated work and may be forced to lay off people, there seems to be this threat every year.

    I worked at General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Superb and talented employees. They work their hearts out for their customers and to maintain excellent personal performance standards. Local management are good people albeit with little authority. Fair salaries.

    Cons

    Snide attitude of corporate leadership toward employees, you know, the ones that come up with the great ideas? Raises are minimal, around 0%-1% and benefits are cut in both good and bad times. Professional development, career advancement and financial incentives have pretty much vanished and replaced with trivial "attaboy" awards. Underwhelmed by corporate leadership - tend to disown mistakes (and there have been some whoppers) and do not give employees a stake in growing the enterprise. No core vision: who are we? Just chasing the next shiny object and throwing away what we can do today?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new president needs to clean house in Falls Church, NOW. Treat your employees like adults and the professionals they are: they're smart, motivated, know their customers and have ideas that can make the company money. Adopt a core identity and constantly rebuild and improve it.
