Pros

Real World Mission of supporting troops and second hand making a difference.
Very good Christian folks for the most part. There is a team attitude with a couple exceptions to the rule.

Cons

This is an organization from WWII. Little has changed since, nor is it likely. The paneling is original from the period as is the rest of the place.
The expectations of some are great, while others loaf. There is a nepotism of sorts in that it is a very tight group that has run the place for decades.
Change management is preached, but not implemented.
There are a couple big time asses that somehow manage to stay in middle management despite their incredible ineptitude and lack of people skills.

Advice to Management

Spend some of that quarterly bonus on some of the people in the trenches that work late trying to make the end of month quotas.

    Pros

    The pros to working at General Dynamics include the following: competitive salary, generous benefits, flexible work hours, and casual work dress code.

    Cons

    The culture is very engineering centric. The ability for advancement is somewhat limited if you are not from an engineering background.

    Advice to Management

    The advice I would give to leadership would be to have more clearly defined career paths for non-engineering, business functions that are critical to project management.

    Pros

    General Dynamics is an excellent company. Every aspect, here and on the East coast displays a company that genuinely cares about its greatest asset, people.

    Cons

    Since it is a contractor for a Government installation, it is possible for the company to lose the contract.

    Advice to Management

    Management of this company is very good, however I would like to see them offer the same hours and working schedules as the government. For example Alternative Schedules but most importantly, if a government installation closes, then GDIT employees should not have to use PTO to compensate.
