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

Wake up or you will lose this business

    Pros

    The compensation is pretty good. You work with very talented people.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company as a whole is fairly bureaucratic, but this is typical of a government contractor.

    Pros

    The folks here are friendly, helpful, and enjoyable to work with. There's a great culture, even without a deep immersion. If you're stuck or need to reach out for help outside of your project scope, I've learned that people are invariably willing to assist.

    Cons

    The current economic crises have taken a toll on compensation and morale. In early 2013 Senior Management nixed merit-based pay increases for at least this year, and in 2012 they reduced PTO earnings. The rate of employment attrition is staggeringly high, but fresh college graduates are being hired semi-annually. I don't have the impression that there is any hope for real career progression.
