    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I have a job
    I get to work with the military
    I get to use my degree
    There is a cafeteria
    The place is kept clean

    Cons

    The company wants to be lean, but still has too many layers of management..
    Management is not in tune with employees and does not communicate well.
    Good Ol boy system is full effect
    Nepotism is rampent throughout company
    The company also seems to promote those people that fail, but all that makes sense if you read the previous two cons.

    Advice to Management

    Want to be profitable, shed some management, and some of those people that spend all day surfing the net while working on "charts".
    Stop purchasing companies and cutting benefits; instead invest in the employees you have
    Keep the talent you have otherwise you will be stuck with mediocre talent like you have with the managers.

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

    Pros

    The work is exciting
    We have state of the art hardware and software development capability
    The engineering talent is here.
    Committed long term employees that believe in the work they do

    Cons

    Sr management is the problem
    No direction from above- little room for creativity
    Business development lacks skill, can't develop business or win programs.
    Sr managers are hired from outside the company rather than developed internally
    Senior management isn't listening, lacks vision and accountability

    Advice to Management

    Stop the cronyism and promote internal talent.
