I have been working at General Dynamics

Pros

Important work for National Security

Cons

Way too Bureaucratic. Too Stovepiped. Not entrepreneurial. Will not take risks. Sole Source mentality. Constantant, endless Powerpoint briefings. No one will make a decision. Too afraid of risking their position. Directors are skating to retirement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire the non producing Directors, like Jack Welch did at GE and Secy Gates did in DoD. Get some young entrepreneurial blood in the Directors line. Not guys who are in their 60's looking to retire. Hold them accountable. Duh!!! Set goals and targets and demand they be met!!! Encourage prudent risk taking. Be willing to advance fund contracts (AWARs) so that we can intelligently perform!!! Be willing to fund inventory--when it makes prudent, business sense. Realize that if you don't change, you will become irrelevant!!!

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
