GD has a lot of potential but seems to be stuck in the past

I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Many great, capable, intelligent co-workers. 401k matching Medical benefits are very good. Dental and other benefits are solid. Vacation time is adequate and easy to schedule.

Cons

Poor upper management. Raises and promotions are more about how long you've been at the company as opposed to how hard you work and your quality of work. Consistent layoffs in the last few years. Not much upward mobility at the moment.

Advice to Management

Change the PC rating system and strive to have more people rated in the upper tiers of the rating system.

    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Best reasons to work at GDST is the people. Very team oriented, friendly, helpful and felt like a family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Reasons not to work at GDST - lack of room for advancement, little or no raises, favoritism by management, poor inter-divisional relationships, disconnection of customer requirements between sales and production, and lack of first article inspections on new products leading to high in-field failures.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to lower level employees for suggestions on improvements and put better processes in place for customer requirements, relationships and new product reviews/inspections.
