    Large company equals bureaucracy (but that's the same at every big company in this industry)

    Pros

    Learned a great deal in my time there. Everyone is very helpful and you get to work on some very cool projects.

    Cons

    If you need clearence you can be left with nothing to do until it comes in. Depending on your manager you could spend many hours or days without much to do.

    Advice to Management

    Have some more projects or preparation set up for interns when they first come in.

    Pros

    C4S has had recent wins with WIN-T and JTRS demonstrating customer satisfaction and a capability to offer the most advanced off th shelf technology to the soldier - the company has a rich history and is well positioned with its launch on GDbroadband - it has also been figting hard for employees jobs and programs

    Cons

    Government spending has been down since 2008 which has impacted both C4S and the entire defense market however the company is strategically aligned to charge back - Adjacent markets need to continue to be a focus and investment for the company

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for solid future acquisitions to grow - continue to reach out to employees individually and keep them updated on future plans for the company

    Pros

    Highly professional technical experts gathering together to solve hard problems for commercial and federal and other businesses.

    Cons

    Extremely conservative control of New Business Funding (NBF) will end up causing the loss of business and limit growth into potential markets which fit GDAIS' skill sets.

    Advice to Management

    Gather the brain power to determine how to to increase and maintain business in the recessive economy. Take-aways should be a focus as well as maintaining incumbency.

    Cons

    Government Contractor so it all depends on Government programs. With all the talk of cut backs I thought it was time to move in a different direction.

    Pros

    Culture, Values, Benefits Overall Complete Job satisfaction

    Cons

    As lots of touring is involved, Its been difficult sometimes to adjust according to work/ personal priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Be neutral to everyone. Sometimes biasism towards someone is not good for other employees who are working really hard.

    Pros

    competitive benefits and wages. Flexible work schedule

    Cons

    They changed to a 2 week pay reporting period. I used to be able to work 40+ hours in a week and get overtime pay for that period. Even If I had to take some time off the next week and charge it to PTO, I would still get paid for the overtime.

    Now I have to work more than 80 hours over a 2 week period to get OT.

    Advice to Management

    I f someone works more than 40 hours a week, pay them for it.

    Pros

    Interesting work, excellent pay/benefit combination.

    Cons

    Geographically distributed campus - Needham, Taunton and Scottsdale, means there is limited opportunity without moving to a different campus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communications flowing to the company like you are, especially as we continue to work through this market correction.
