Pros

Working for General Dynamics is one way to help our armed forces be protected by enemy threats. The benefits are pretty good and the company still has a pension plan.

Cons

The senior leadership doesn't always seem to completely understand the market and customers it works with, though there is a current effort to remedy some of this.

Advice to Management

Decisions to procedd with projects needs to be made quicker, waiting for an opportunity to become more realistic tends to be too late.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits are among the best there is, and while the site management is too busy trying to be every bodys buddy to be effective, the corporation as a whole strives to take care of their employees while maintaining profitability.

    Cons

    Site management has failed to maintain a level of professionalism to be expected of them. A serious lack of integrity within mabagement, resulting in a lack of respect for management by employees. Middle management at the site spends too much time listening to employees whoh are trying to impress them with what said employee knows, and too little time acually observing employees in the performance of assigned duties.

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening to your management and start listening to the people actually getting the work done.

    I worked at General Dynamics as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Still thinking, salary was OK, there is nothing else that I can add but must complete 20 words so have put this. That is just like GD, 'rule says' so you must do it - because there is a rule - for no other reason that anyone could explain

    Cons

    security, rules, procedures, I worked in a department nothing to do with Military or other sensitive information yet rules are intrusive to the point of making business difficult to transact

    Advice to Management

    In Military you are doing OK, but you could do so much better if you understood the sometimes ridiculous demands you place upon people
