Leadership is often delusional about competition for contracts.

Engineering Manager (Current Employee) Sterling Heights, MI

ProsInteresting work on pretty cool products...

Security and advantages of a big company...

Global reach and high sales numbers...

ConsWhen you actually win the work.

That often leave you feeling bereft of identity.

That breed constant demand for growth and a crippling fear of innovation (which generally contradict each other at some point)

Advice to Senior ManagementROIC numbers aren't solely improved by cutting costs. A structured approach to fostering innovation and development would be helpful.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Project Management Specialist (Current Employee) Sterling Heights, MI

    I have been working at General Dynamics Land Systems full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Mostly laid back atmosphere, easy going. Great benefits, can accrue vacation days… Cons: Management likes to upgrade status reports they don't like, so work revolves around "ghost" target. Management is disconnected and sometimes appear to be creating conflict… Advice to Senior Management: None. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
