I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great salary and benefits. Very interesting defense-type work. Good people, very professional. Hours are flexible and accommodating. Work-life balance is encouraged.

Cons

Because of cutbacks in govt funding, layoffs are common place. Workloads have increased substantially in the last 3 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recommend sharing the wealth from other parts of the company to support the R&D in the emerging areas where C4 has core expertise and years of experience. Focus more effort on winning new business.

    General Dynamics C4 Systems lacks strategic vision and manages via the "good old boy network".

    Pros

    GD pays well for the area, they support flexible work options including telecommuting, and their products help keep soldiers safe.

    Cons

    Opportunities for women and minorities are limited, the company is struggling to capitalize on its portfolio, and it has been laying off staff for 3 years with no end in sight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need to know there is some plan for the future that involves more than just layoffs.

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

    Pros

    Some really great technical folks working in the trenches of the projects.

    Cons

    Too many managers pushing papers and processes. Top management has little regard for those doing the actual work. Benefits are less and less each year. Top 10% (primarily managers) of workforce belongs to a secret 'bonus club' which earns large bonuses each year. The other 90% gets no bonus or perhaps only an occasional slice of pizza for lunch or turkey lunch and handshake during the holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the profits with all workers and trim the management staff.
