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

Pros

Good pay, decent benefits which declined over the years.

Cons

Way too much management. The old Motorola brotherhood system exists here which is not good for non-Motorolans. Fantastic work without drama goes unrecognized. Everything has to be a crisis. Real engineers are continually laid off while management goes unscathed. Company has gone from 6000 to 2000 since late 2009. Not winning new work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward people who do great work without drama and execute on time. Try to get new business and cut management while keeping the engineers who do the actual work.

Conversely, sell the business to a company that wants to be in Arizona.

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

    Pros

    The every day employees are great!

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking vision and backbone. There are no contracts being won and the Business Development team is a joke. All they do is spend the companies money on business trips with little to no return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All upper management should resign or be fired for being inept. There are people in leadership positions with no experience in the discipline in which they have been placed and no accomplishments that have aided the business.
