    I have been working at General Dynamics ATP for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people who know their products, jobs and know how to work, everyone is very dedicated.

    Cons

    GD-OTS management has slowed customer inquiry response times to a painfully slow pace due to having to review all dollar values and requiring intense justification for low dollar value responses and at the same time they don't understand why deadlines are not being met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the employees to make the right decision in the best interest of the company, reinstate signature authority levels and stop micro-managing. If employees are not trusted by management why should employees trust management. To stem the flow of people jumping ship hire some people back so current employees are not so overworked.

    Pros

    Good reputation for weapons reliability. Technically Saavy employees. Great location with Modern office surroundings. Strong and powerful Brand recognition.

    Too focused on Bottom line growth and lost sight of the value of its employees. Drastic cost cutting measures taken to boost profits without considering consequences of actions. Poor communication and inconsistencies among the leadership.

    Learn to Accept constructive criticism and be willing to change your behavior. Treat other employees as you want to be treated with greater respect: regardless of title.

    Pros

    GDATP leadership is open to and allows for employees to move around to different positions to allow you to better learn the business.

    Cons

    Given the current government defense industry and budget cuts, government contract work has seen a decline in business which has hurt GDATP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees' suggestions and open up lines of communication with top leadership.

    I worked at General Dynamics ATP full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Every other Friday off, some good people, nice office building, really good gig if you were on executive comp.

    Cons

    Zero leadership, continual erosion of pay/benefits, closing HQ, talk about values was just that - talk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reflect on why you have failed in your current role and try not to do it again. You have negatively affected a lot of peoples lives.
