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

Pros

A good place to work for internships and new grads. The 9/80 work schedule (9 hrs/day, every other Friday off) is really nice.

Cons

Not a good place for mid/senior level employees. These are the people that get laid off first when DoD/Govt budgets get cut on a yearly basis. Benefits WERE very good in 2007, but have been cut drastically every year since.

Advice to Management

The company organization is laiden with problems. The matrix organization where a person doesn't really work for their boss affects promotions and personal growth. A matrix organization can work, if the functional managers keep a close eye on what their people are doing. I have more than 20 years of experience and at one point I was working for a 20-something new grad that had no clue.
I was always impressed with SENIOR management, but middle management has much to be desired, and these are the people that directly impact personal growth.

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

    Pros

    They heat the building in the winter. They don't always air condition it in the summer. If you like being pigeon holed with no chance for advancement, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    They don't even pay severance when they let you go. They have taken away all of their benefits. You are under constant video surveillance when in the building, even in the rest rooms.

    Advice to Management

    If you trust people you don't have to keep them under constant video surveillance.
