    I worked at General Dynamics C4 Systems

    Pros

    Great people that learned about work ethic, pride in product and outstanding customer focus while the company was still Motorola Government Electronics Group.

    Cons

    After General Dynamics acquired Motorola Government electronics group the heart was torn out of the organization. IT became a for profit corporation

    Pros

    The pay, benefits, and work/personal time off balance is very good. Advancement is available if you advance yourself such as gaining a degree or graduate degree and a few certificates as needed by the industry.

    Cons

    During the past few years, raises have been very slim if at all to maintain the employees on hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what they are doing. Management is in tune with the employees.

    I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good career advancement opportunities and a variety of different types of programs to work on.

    Cons

    Lack of vision from the business leadership and poor/slow response to shifting market priorities, staffing needs, etc... the upper management's style is very re-active and not really consistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do better at projecting both the business markets you're in as well as the employment market your people are in... you can better estimate staff needs, attrition rates and where your company is headed.

    Pros

    Terrific employees who serve heroes. We connect and protect warfighters and first responders.

    Cons

    All businesses have down cycles in their markets, and C4 Systems continues to weather theirs as the U.S. Army rests following two wars which have taken a tremendous toll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take advantage of your immediate opportunity with Mission Systems to form an even better company.
