I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Location, friendly co-workers, parking, building has other young companies in it and movies get filmed there

Cons

benefits are unacceptable and been going downhill for the last 7 years. No raises in the last 4+ years. Corporate restricts internet heavily. No more retirement. No sick time. Continuing to reduce PTO. No paid overtime. Lack of social atmosphere. Management is aloof and unaware of what most employees skills and daily tasks. Corporate implements very controlling change and reduced benefits based on reasons of "security" or "cost". Travel policies state employees have to stay at Marriotts and take the absolute lowest fair. If you work a 60hr week, the first 10 hours must be "donated" to the company even though they charge the customer for it. Health care is almost the same as paying cash. No education reimbursement. Just a completely different company over the past 7 years, and not one way better

Advice to Management

See above. Think about the employees. Stop sending out monthly "this is how great our company is" while reducing benefits, doing layoffs and asking us how to cut costs.

    Pros

    GD Satcom is a good, recognizable name. They are connected to the larger Company which can be a good thing if the economy sees a lull.
    There are many negative reviews here but there has been a large shift in focus recently that has caused many good things to be possible.

    Cons

    Unfortunately being under the larger Company also means you must abide by any directive that comes down. And if the Company as a whole does not do as well as planned financially, the lower company group gets hit harder.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the employees and develop your greatest resource.
