    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pay is reasonable (benefits are mediocre), lots of equipment to work on. Some people are very highly skilled and working hard. If you like travel, there are lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    10% of technical staff are really sharp, the rest are taking up space. Management is asleep at the wheel. Upper management pays no attention to staff morale, and ignores the workers. It's nearly impossible to make an actual difference by doing a good job and going above and beyond.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very competent and intelligent engineers on staff, and everyone is very approachable and down to Earth. Compensation is good, and the job is challenging.

    Cons

    Not much in the way of job security. Lots of contract work available, but getting on full time is not easy.

    Advice to Management

    stop hiring contractors, and hire some people full time.
