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

Pros

Compensation is great....If you can break into inner circle you will do reasonably well.

Cons

Leadership opportunities limited, still a bit of boys club. Leadership track and promotion track is a complete mystery.

Advice to Management

Not everyone is meant to be a leader

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

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits which declined over the years.

    Cons

    Way too much management. The old Motorola brotherhood system exists here which is not good for non-Motorolans. Fantastic work without drama goes unrecognized. Everything has to be a crisis. Real engineers are continually laid off while management goes unscathed. Company has gone from 6000 to 2000 since late 2009. Not winning new work.

    Advice to Management

    Reward people who do great work without drama and execute on time. Try to get new business and cut management while keeping the engineers who do the actual work.

    Conversely, sell the business to a company that wants to be in Arizona.
