    Wonderful people work here but the opportunities to move up are hard to come by.

    I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems

    Pros

    I enjoy working for GD because the people are fantastic! Managers are open and honest. This company is accomodating and supports a work/life balance.

    Cons

    It is very diffcult to move up within this company. Promotions and salary increases are hard to come by. It is difficult to be geoagnostic across projects.

    I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salaries are good. Plenty of work, especially large projects. Food at annual picnic is great, however, the picnic is no longer in a park, but in the parking lot.

    Cons

    Benefits have been on the decline over the years (higher insurance costs, taking away vacation, less rewards). Investing in new projects has also been cut.

    I have been working at General Dynamics C4 Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job security for the most part. Provides clearance sponsorship

    Cons

    Used to have more vacation time, full school reimbursement, awesome medical plans. Now only get 3 weeks (for being here 12 years), only $5200/yr school imbursement, and so-so medical plan. Office is ridulously short manned, and workload keeps increasing to where everyone is burned out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raises would be nice (salary freeze for about 3-4 years now). I have been here 12 years , and can no longer stand it. It has gone downhill. Stop being so focused on making money, and start looking at taking care of your loyal employees.

    I worked at General Dynamics C4 Systems

    Pros

    The project responsibilities and expectations were in-line with what was originally expected of me. The team of people I worked with were knowledgeable and supportive.

    Cons

    Sometimes remote employment creates communication/support issues, but these can be resolved through diligence and creative problem solving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support of staff and project/professional guidance was great. Additional opportunities within professional expertise would be nice. It was disappointing there were no further opportunities to remain employed within the company.

    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.

    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.
