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

Pros

They paid well and I worked with some excellent people. The work, when there is work, is generally interesting and sometimes challenging. The lower management layer is success oriented, compassionate, and technically astute.

Cons

Upper management has far too many people to run a company of this size, driving up overhead and making the company non-competitive. The recent "flattening" of management did nothing to alleviate this problem - all the good old boys are still there - still a burden that adds nothing and is sucking the company dry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire yourselves. You're the problem. Get over it and just walk away while there's still something left.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. I had a flexible schedule, including 9/80 biweekly work hours. Great pay. Willing to promote quickly.

    Cons

    Not a great place to start a career as you won't get much guidance. It's great for independent workers in the middle of their career who can assert themselves and achieve results. They really need better business sense to be better able to weather the downturns in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change assessments to include personal and professional goals. Quit shoe-horning the topics of those goals and give clear direction to management to make sure that goals really are stretching, measurable, etc. In my experience most employees made this a 2 hour task per year, max, which is not enough to get honest feedback and being thoughtful about
