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

Pros

Competitive salary and acceptable benefits.
Long and stable projects with some interesting technology.
Acceptable work/life balance.

Cons

Management is old school. Promotion is based on "time in chair".
Highly dependent on government contract funding.
Not much investment in future product technology.
High performers are treated the same as average performers, which is not a motivator.

Advice to Management

Take risks, invest in new technologies.
Recognize high performers.
Get rid of stale management that does not take the business forward.
