    Former Employee - Senior Engineer in Ypsilanti, MI

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, tuition assistance for engineering degrees, casual work environment, ability to work on technically challenging projects with a lot of bright people.

    Cons

    Lack of corporate culture or fit within the GDAIS organization. No career advancement or growth opportunities, trivial or non-existent raises (0%-2%) over the last 5 years, very difficult to get promoted, poor morale among employees, 'check the box' meaningless performance reviews. Management does not seem to care about developing and retaining younger employees. Many employees have left the company over the past few years but that hasn't seemed to change things. Local management is aware of issues but powerless to enact change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees and treat them like you actually care.

    GD-AIS: A good work environment, but lately, tying to become too lean by trimming benefits.

    Former Employee - Lead Technician II - Engineering in Scottsdale, AZ

    I worked at General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    GDAIS in Scottsdale, AZ provides an excellent work atmosphere, with flexible start and stop times and good opportunities for career advancement through tuition reimbursement and being located close to Arizona State University.

    Cons

    The benefits package seems to be a common target of upper management when they look for places to trim overhead. While the current benefits package may be in line with industry standard, it is discouraging to long-term employees to have benefits taken away and does not encourage longevity with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop comparing the benefits package to "industry standard". Instead of trying to be like everyone else, take the initiative and be the company in the lead. If you want to attract and keep valuable personnel, reward them appropriately and recognize that those in the top salaried positions are there because of their consistent, valuable efforts.
