    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 Management

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

    Pros

    GD-AIS provides great benefits including access to many online educational programs. Their lower level management team looks out for their employees and treats them as family.

    Cons

    Upper management too often only looks at the bottom line figure. They cut employee benefits and then treat themselves to lavish management off-sites at luxury hotels. Additionally, there is no type of mentor program for employees or young managers.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a mentor program and live by the same rules as you give employees.

    Pros

    One of the best engineering teams i have ever worked with and I have worked with Boeoing, Lockheed Martin, BAE, Honeywell, etc. GDAIS had the most ethical and caring. They were trylt the HONEST BROKERS of all the defense contractors.

    Cons

    The Senior Engineerign Leaders were focussed too much on cuttign heads than makingsure the cusotmers were takene care of. It was always a fight to get Senior Engineerign Leadership to be accountable and cooperate with the business teams who wanted to satify the customer and not just keep employees at 120% of allocated bandwidth.

    Advice to Management

    Put business leaders in charge of the company and NOT engineers. Engineers have no real social skills and do not see the world as the rest of us do, so keep engineering in the engineering world and let the business leaders run the business.


  11. Awesome!
