    I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time (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.

    I worked at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Before current mgmt. structure; great history (motorola), great people, excellent project /business acquisition targeting, potential for employee growth, excellent salary structure.Great product / technology well of knowledge (mature employees).

    Cons

    Present mgmt: No opportunity for empolyee growth, Technology well drying up with lose of older employees, dept supersior layer filled with empolyees w/self interest and not empolyees (self-survival mode). If your a manager with this attitude then you need to leave as the goal of selfless mentoring and leadership has been clouded by selfless goals. If your over 45-50, keep looking for that tap on the shoulder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to mgmt; "how many leads does the department need' specially look at the config mgmt group.....does the current health and project environment really req. that many leads.
