No opinion of CEO

I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Opportunity to work with some of the most wonderful and dedicated people. You can be proud of the end result product.

Cons

The amount of focus on evaluations, lengthy meetings, and multiple side-tasks, that are of little value; leave limited time to complete important assigned tasks, that impact others greatly. High level of focus on one low-level task not accomplished, while over looking numerous higher-level tasks that are completed.

Advice to Management

Hire Managers who work well with people, know their people, and know how to manage; not micro-manage to the detriment of an employee’s time and company’s goals.

    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many great, capable, intelligent co-workers.
    401k matching
    Medical benefits are very good.
    Dental and other benefits are solid.
    Vacation time is adequate and easy to schedule.

    Cons

    Poor upper management.
    Raises and promotions are more about how long you've been at the company as opposed to how hard you work and your quality of work.
    Consistent layoffs in the last few years.
    Not much upward mobility at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Change the PC rating system and strive to have more people rated in the upper tiers of the rating system.

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

    Pros

    Defense work; good talent; innovative designs; long history of satisfying DOD customers

    Cons

    Brain drain; lack of focus; unclear objectives; dehumanizing layoff practices; poor communications

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better; communicate "real" information, not just "flag waving"; make up your minds about what business we're in; stop reorganizing every year or two; stop reading the Harvard Business Review and start talking to your employees.
