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

I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time for more than 10 years

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

    Great company for seasoned professionals, not a good place for young or new hires out of school.

    Pros

    Compensation is great....If you can break into inner circle you will do reasonably well.

    Cons

    Leadership opportunities limited, still a bit of boys club. Leadership track and promotion track is a complete mystery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everyone is meant to be a leader
