    Former Employee - Client Account Manager in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    I worked at General Dynamics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has great health benefits and retirement savings matching. I took advantage of their tuition reimbursement plan to get a Master of Science degree. The management at GD was also very open and direct about the vision for the company. I loved working to support the armed services and making difference on the war on terror.

    Cons

    Business decisions were not always well thought out by senior leadership especially in GDC4S and as a result, a lot of money was wasted on projects that had weak business cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GDC4S needs a new vision and growth strategy that is competitive to the offerings from Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and BAE. Being the best integrator of other people's technology will limit GDC4S to being a marginal player and will not be sustainable in the long term.
