I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The folks here are friendly, helpful, and enjoyable to work with. There's a great culture, even without a deep immersion. If you're stuck or need to reach out for help outside of your project scope, I've learned that people are invariably willing to assist.

Cons

The current economic crises have taken a toll on compensation and morale. In early 2013 Senior Management nixed merit-based pay increases for at least this year, and in 2012 they reduced PTO earnings. The rate of employment attrition is staggeringly high, but fresh college graduates are being hired semi-annually. I don't have the impression that there is any hope for real career progression.

    I worked at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time

    Pros

    People there are bright, pleasant, and work very hard.

    Cons

    As the defense budget shrinks, defense contractors will be placed in deep financial trouble. This is not a growth business anymore.

    Stale technology and process. Not really sure GD wants to be a software company.
