Pros

Good management on site. The project leadership is exellent and will challenge you. They have interesting projects.

Cons

Government Contractor so it all depends on Government programs. With all the talk of cut backs I thought it was time to move in a different direction.

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

    Pros

    Staff autonomy is good. Interesting projects.

    Cons

    Very poor staff development. Run by accountants. No vision for the future. Upper management's main focus seems to be on cost cutting.

    Advice to Management

    Long term vision is more than finding new ways to cut costs. Actually thinking about what the customers are going to need in 2-5 years, how technology is changing, and then focusing on melding those two, could lead to real opportunities.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Co-Workers
    Work is challenging and enjoyable

    Cons

    Higher performing employees get pigeon holed into positions
    New career ladder and promotion schedule, still no upward mobility
    Too much management, think 3 coworkers and 10 bosses
    Raises are very low, and you need to spend as much time fighting to advance your career as you do working

    Advice to Management

    Try taking care of the guys doing all the work instead of the ones wasting time and money in meetings. You've cut raises, company healthcare contributions, the recognition awards budget, PTO accrual rates and promotion raises to save money but management bonuses for projects reaching milestones never got touched and you made enough money to pay dividends to share holders but not pay your employees.
