I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Intelligent work force motivated to work with teams. Strong and friendly management rewards those based on performance not how hard you try.

Cons

The company is struggling to keep costs down considering the sequestration. A lot of unknowns in the industry.

Advice to Management

Bring more youth into our aging plants to help energize the workforce and change the current culture.

    Pros

    New management from the bigger umbrella (C4S)... may be the change needed to create a more efficient organization.. which means more business... more likely to keep your job.

    Cons

    Technicians are treated like manufacturing operators from the days of old. Core hours 9-4. Specified break time and lunch time. Personal conversations should never take place in the lab.

    Advice to Management

    Do not alienate your experienced people. The economy may actually get better someday.

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

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were pretty good until recent cutbacks (partially due to military cuts and a generally "down" economy). The work can be interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    A lot of bad management decisions have been buffered by the ridiculous profit margins that defense contracts often have. As the government becomes more fiscally responsible, this problem will need to be addressed. These bad decisions often result in missed opportunities or more work for those at the bottom of the food chain.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt a more flexible and quick-response approach to meeting military needs, instead of the archaic process currently in place. Focus on really meeting the end user's needs first and foremost.
