    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    We work with first rate equipment & software tools and first rate IT support. Communications with middle management is excellent.

    Cons

    The layoffs appear to be totally arbitrary. Absolutely key people have been laid off, leaving voids in the ability for the rest of us to effectively do our jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Think before you lay someone off. Will that person's departure significantly affect co-workers or result in the position going unfilled for an extended time?

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

    Pros

    Good leave allowance and benefits

    Cons

    GDAIS can't get out of their own way with layers of policies and procedures. It takes weeks/months to accomplish things that should be done in days. Old boy network. Constantly "RIFing" the senior population (i.e. higher priced folks) for bogus reasons. Habitually eliminate experienced personnel by eliminating position and then several months later creating a req for a slightly different, less expensive requirement.
