Pros

Somewhat flexible work schedule, mostly challenging work

Cons

Lack of a competitive benefits package, poor pay increases - always blaming the need to stay competitive, while senior staff reap great dividends from contract incentives. I have worked for General Electric, Martin Marietta, Lockheed Martin and then General Dynamics over a 40 year career both as an hourly worker to a Senior Engineer, General Dynamics was by far the worst. GD took all our benefits away since taking over our plant. Ethics is just a poster on the wall!

Advice to Management

    Pros

    Intelligent work force motivated to work with teams. Strong and friendly management rewards those based on performance not how hard you try.

    Cons

    The company is struggling to keep costs down considering the sequestration. A lot of unknowns in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Bring more youth into our aging plants to help energize the workforce and change the current culture.

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest engineers in industry dating back from the old Motorola days.

    Cons

    Continuous layoffs the past 3 years
    Increasing attrition rates of best and brightest engineers
    No vision nor hope from executive management on what's next after current large programs hit end of life on current large contracts with big engineering staff (ie. JTRS & MUOS).
    Business Development team have failed company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire ex-military folks into leadership positions that have network connections in Goverment.
