I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good work/life balance.
Some work is exciting and makes a difference.
Some very good people down in the ranks -- talented and care about what they're doing.

Cons

Upper management is out of touch -- they get bonuses while our salaries are frozen and benefits cut.
Some projects are tedious, boring, and poorly managed.
2014 isn't a good time to be a defense contractor.

Advice to Management

Share the pain; stop painting rosy pictures for investors while pushing employees to keep doing more with less. Branch out from defense contracting -- the handwriting is on the wall! Try harder to insulate the teams that are rocking.

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

    Pros

    Some really great technical folks working in the trenches of the projects.

    Cons

    Too many managers pushing papers and processes. Top management has little regard for those doing the actual work. Benefits are less and less each year. Top 10% (primarily managers) of workforce belongs to a secret 'bonus club' which earns large bonuses each year. The other 90% gets no bonus or perhaps only an occasional slice of pizza for lunch or turkey lunch and handshake during the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Share the profits with all workers and trim the management staff.
