Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Scottsdale, AZ

I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good salaries, really smart coworkers

Cons

Lack of new projects, work and life balance can be really difficult, so many recent layoffs over the last 2 years that morale is low. Some dead weight was removed, but also some very productive engineers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Utilize your staff more evenly instead of piling all the work on a few individuals. Stop making desperate decisions just to win contracts. Think long term

    I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary, free parking, Starbucks, Scottsdale location, and a credit union inside the building. There are still a few quality people left to work with, although many have left, and many more are planning to leave.

    Cons

    Many organizational checks and balances have been removed leading to poor unilateral decisions which result in a shrinking business base and increasing upper management tiers. There is a lack of candor regarding project status to executive management and customers in order to hide the lack of progress and save face. During the ongoing layoffs there are questionable labor practices in terms of selecting people to layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope the new strategy works, or there won't be anything left of C4S.
