    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.
