I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits. I had a flexible schedule, including 9/80 biweekly work hours. Great pay. Willing to promote quickly.

Cons

Not a great place to start a career as you won't get much guidance. It's great for independent workers in the middle of their career who can assert themselves and achieve results. They really need better business sense to be better able to weather the downturns in the market.

Advice to Management

Change assessments to include personal and professional goals. Quit shoe-horning the topics of those goals and give clear direction to management to make sure that goals really are stretching, measurable, etc. In my experience most employees made this a 2 hour task per year, max, which is not enough to get honest feedback and being thoughtful about
