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

    Pros

    None to speak of in the past 3 years. Latest set of Managers caused more dissent among employees at all levels. Ethics and truth are merely punchlines and catch phrases in an overindulgence of meetings about what to do and not doing anything or moving in reverse.
    Bad decision making causing many unnecessary hours of overtime, plummeted even further when other facility managers wee brought in to "fix" Things. Personalty I don't think that there was much honestty moving upwards as well.

    Cons

    Worked with many great minds between technicians and engineers over a vast array of products and projects.

    Advice to Management

    With other facilities closing you can now move on and damage another communities economy and workers morlale. please move on and sell it to someone that will invest in the people and community like Vertex once did.

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

    Pros

    I spent the beginning years of my career at GD. It allowed me to grow into quite a robust engineer over 10 years, developing technical solutions to difficult problems. The company allowed for me to transfer between multiple programs, allowing me to continue to grow in my engineering experiences.

    Cons

    Every year that I worked at GD, there were layoffs.

    Even though the building was well maintained, it has been going through a remodeling phase for over 5 years, one floor/area at a time.

    Due to the contracting business, you never know if your program is going to be there the next day. It would be nice to hear some straight facts from upper management so that you can be aware of the current vibe of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people when they deserve it instead of waiting for them to interview at other companies and then counter offer.
