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

    Pros

    Good company with lots of benefits and opportunities when the wave was high. Easy to progress in your engineering and support career. Interesting engineering and procedural problems that needed solving. Lots of very good talent (though dwindling)

    Cons

    Dismal and depressing in the trough. Reducing headcount for more than three years with top notch senior (and senior) engineers being let go on a monthly basis. Benefits have eroded to be "competitive" and are not competitive with the companies that engineers are flocking to. The trough was apparent for over three years, but everyone seemed to think that "sequestration will never happen" - very bad preparation for the "lean times."

    Advice to Management

    Do something truly revolutionary. Cut the number of VPs, reduce Senior Management. Think outside the corporate box. Bring women and minorities onto the management playing field. Senior management is too male and too pale. Stop paying lip service to culture and values and create a truly inclusive environment
