I have been working at General Dynamics full-time (More than 3 years)
-Offer a program to pay for your Master's degree, as long as the manager approves of it and is similar to your working field.
-Option to contribute percentage of pay to Roth and 401k.
-Lots of training opportunities, but this depends on your manager and how flexible they are with funding you.
-Flexible time! This is one of my favorites because I don't need to take time off of work to take appointments. You work 9 hours a day to have every other Friday off.
-80 hours of Sick time (or however you wish to use it), 3 floating holidays (to use however you wish), and 7 or 8 company holiday. Depending on how long you've been in the company, you receive 2-6 weeks vacation days a year. Can bank up to 250 hours of vacation.
-Availability of more interesting projects is on the rise due to change in company outlook. They're always changing (attempting for the better).
-Offer pet, dental, eye, and health insurance.
-People are very nice and helpful, but there are some older folks who still have the mentality of "my job is my job security, so I'm not going to be much help."
-Large company and can be hit or miss depending on which manager you have directing your spending.
-They have a high turnover rate of young employees (age 30 and below).
-Health insurance could be better. HSA makes it more manageable.
-Interning is on the boring side. You spend most time learning about the company, and can be slightly misleading for when/if you accept a full-time position. (Again, this depends on your manager)
-Feels like half of the company is retiring. This can be beneficial because you learn a lot about the company and how things work from experts, or people who have been at GD for 10+ years.

I have loved working here, and I'm not sure of what I would have to offer to management.
