    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time

    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

    Benefits are top notch, working schedule is 9/80 so you get every other Friday off, which allows more work/life balance.

    Cons

    Working under contract can get ridiculous and iffy. Advancement means moving from current location depending on the size of the team you have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your door open to your workers and mingle as much as time permits.
