    Pros

    I like to help others, it helps me to better myself as a person.

    Cons

    The customer's lack of understanding the limits on what one is able to do as an agent.

    Advice to Management

    If anything, listen to the representatives, they are taking the calls, so their views on what can help call flow, customer service, support and satisfaction as well as the work environment should be considered.

    Pros

    Top notch organization, with highly capable individuals. Positive work environment with good personal to work balance.

    Cons

    Defense industry down and makes for an unsettled/insecured atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Too much politics in the decision making. Heavy weighting of decisions to the east coast portion of the organization for no reason other than its the east coast portion of the organization (which oddly enough is where the executive management are from.

    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 Management

    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.
