The business has a great deal of interesting work but not a genuine long-term concern for its employees.

I worked at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

There a number of large challenging programs to work on. There are a large number of dedicated and very bright engineers working there who accomplish some pretty amazing things and are a joy to work with.

Cons

The programs are very aggressively bid and the expectation is that the employees will work lots of overtime to try and bring in programs with minimal overrun. There is little or no consideration of work/life balance or long-term retention of employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider valuing and rewarding the employees actually doing the work as much as you do the higher level managers who get the credit and rewards for the accomplished work.

    I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very competent and intelligent engineers on staff, and everyone is very approachable and down to Earth. Compensation is good, and the job is challenging.

    Cons

    Not much in the way of job security. Lots of contract work available, but getting on full time is not easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop hiring contractors, and hire some people full time.

    Probably ok if you just want to sit in a corner and write software.
