    I worked at General Dynamics C4 Systems

    Pros

    - hands on experience
    - gained valuable technical skills
    - Always had work to do (which I guess could be a pro or con depending on the person)

    Cons

    Looking at computer screens for long periods of time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your existing employees... they seem unhappy with some of the cutbacks. Makes me a little hesitant to work full time upon graduation.

    Good salary and some of the work cab be stimulating.

    I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems

    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.
