    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked at GDMS for a very short time (<1yr), but really loved how employees got treated there. Management really tried hard to keep employees happy. GDMS is located in Scottsdale, which is in the nicer part of Phoenix. 9/80 work schedule which allows you to take every other Friday off. The "decompression room" has nice big screen TV, with X-box and Playstation along with pingpong table and foosball table. 401k... matching up to 4.5%. Nice small perks like paying $150 toward your gym membership and free Valley Metro card allowing you to take buses and light rails at no cost.

    Cons

    The company can't seem to win any work contracts. Maybe marketing department needs to step up their level. Due to this, your job might not be very stable. Engineering tools (SW/HW) and workstations are a bit dated, not keeping up with the outside world.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and keep on improving.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of time off, flexible working schedule.

    Cons

    You’re just a number.... each day feels the exact same. Nothing exciting is going to happen. Very repetitive and standers corporate job

    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems for less than a year

    Pros

    Working for defense is so rewarding. The people who work there are very passionate and they work on amazing projects.

    Cons

    Not many skills to take away from the internship. Internship has flexible start and end date, but they won't tell you when important intern events occur that you are required to do until after you submit your end date. Housing assistance is not provided.

    Advice to Management

    Structure the internship with an actual start and end date, or at least provide new hires with a timeline of events that interns are expected to participate in.
