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

Pros

In the past there has been a lot of interesting projects to work on, with opportunities to work on different technologies from project to project.

Cons

In recent years the company has been cutting benefits and does not seem to value the hard work of its employees. They have had layoffs on projects followed by overtime being strongly encouraged a few weeks later. Recently employees were paid on unpaid time, regardless how many years they have worked hard for the company and made profits for the company.

Advice to Management

In theory profits should be balanced with planning for the rare times when work becomes light for short periods of time. There are always times when there isn't enough work to keep everyone busy and eventually something may have to be done, but that leash is far too short and doesn't consider the sacrifices employees make when there is a lot of work to do.

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

    Pros

    Very interesting development programs that provided engineering with challenges and the ability to grow. Good people to work with in all disciplines.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on near term financials. East (Taunton) vs. West (Arizona) differences undermines the ability to achieve future growth.

    Advice to Management

    Need to concentrate on new business development and growing the business in lieu of current emphasis on near term financial results
