    Pros

    The people were beyond great. There was a bond that went well beyond the conference room. The compensation was at least a Birdie if not an Eagle (better than "par").

    Cons

    My experience ended in June of 2011, when the company was starting their cost savings effort, when I was laid off. The health of the company is directly coupled with the governments economic efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Do everything possible to stay a good family, beyond the money I was a contributor. I see that slipping away, and it makes me sad.

    Pros

    The compensation is pretty good.
    You work with very talented people.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company as a whole is fairly bureaucratic, but this is typical of a government contractor.

    Pros

    The best part about working at General Dynamics was the people that I worked with. It was also very close to my home. I loved the 9/80 schedule and the flexible hours. It was actually fun to go to work! It was my dream job.

    Cons

    The down side was our Corporate Office didn't seem to support our particular facility. We felt like since we didn't work on the east coast, we didn't matter.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to upper management would be to pay more attention to the people that work for you. Take time out of your day to show that you care about us and you appreciate the work we are doing for you.

    Pros

    Intelligent work force motivated to work with teams. Strong and friendly management rewards those based on performance not how hard you try.

    Cons

    The company is struggling to keep costs down considering the sequestration. A lot of unknowns in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Bring more youth into our aging plants to help energize the workforce and change the current culture.

    Pros

    General Dynamics is a great company, GDC4S's work is in an interesting intersection between technology and defense. The company is getting through sequestration well.

    Cons

    The benefits are slightly less generous than what the federal government offers, but still decent.
