    Staff Software Engineer in Pittsburgh, PA
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems

    Pros

    Talented people, High achievers, Good peers from remote offices,Flexible hours, Comfortable workplace, Good remuneration, Excellent opportunities for training, Amazing product.

    Cons

    Quickly losing quality on new hires, Silly internal competition, Poor local management (since 2009), Low morale at local office, Product concept is still amazing, but its technology is almost outdated.

    Advice to Management

    The Pittsburgh Office management needs renovation/intervention ASAP. A better strategy for talent retention needs to be established now, as senior staff that represents the technical core of the company is thinking about leaving (after 10+ years in the job). Let's keep this office a great place to work.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work on truly cutting edge technology in defense of the nation, good ideas rise to the top, comparatively low internal corporate bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Still more bureaucratic than purely commercial endeavors, workforce diversity (age, gender, and race) is improving but needs to be better.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing new... hire young, hungry engineers, deliberately find/create unclassified programs for them to work while waiting for security clearance approval.
