I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

You can accrue vacation up to twice your annual allotment. Vacation time increases with time of service.

Trying to be more commercial-like in development.

Dev managers like to help you succeed, but this is hit-or-miss depending on which SBU you are in.

Cons

Major government contract house, so work is based on government needs, which right now is very little.
Government wants more COTS and less GOTS
Time cards hinder productivity, mental shutdown after 40 hours.
Too slow to make decisions.
Only time innovation is really done is on a government contract... if you're lucky.
Not really investing in new or innovative technology.
Nickel and dime-ing the benefits.
Can't do anything without a charge number.

Advice to Management

Do a better job on IRAD investment, integration is all well and good, but not a good long term position.
