Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Respectful purpose in supporting governement efforts to assist with maintaining the safety of US and Allied troops in the military. Their technoligies help save lives and track BAD GUYS who wish to hurt Democracy.

Cons

Lack of corporate direction and financial responsibilty to money-saving efforts to save employee jobs. Wasting $100,000+ on Starbucks Coffee and machine P/M service & up-keep fees on their dispensing machines to provide a perk (free drinks) to everyones is an unecessary expense. PEOPLE CAN BUY THEIR OWN COFFEE AND COCO.

Advice to Management

Get rid of un-necessary spending and waste to save jobs.

    C4S has had recent wins with WIN-T and JTRS demonstrating customer satisfaction and a capability to offer the most advanced off th shelf technology to the soldier - the company has a rich history and is well positioned with its launch on GDbroadband - it has also been figting hard for employees jobs and programs

    Cons

    Government spending has been down since 2008 which has impacted both C4S and the entire defense market however the company is strategically aligned to charge back - Adjacent markets need to continue to be a focus and investment for the company

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for solid future acquisitions to grow - continue to reach out to employees individually and keep them updated on future plans for the company

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most departments will work around school schedules. Flexible shifts are available in some departments. Some jobs allow for working from home.

    Cons

    More and more benefits have been cut in the last couple of years. Not a lot of opportunities for advancement. No clear career guidance from managers.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the poor performers and advance the hard working employees. Promote from within and take advantage of the experience. Middle and upper management are out of touch with their teams. Revamp the review process, the personal commitment program is out dated and a waste of company time and resources.
