Pros

Working for General Dynamics is one way to help our armed forces be protected by enemy threats. The benefits are pretty good and the company still has a pension plan.

Cons

The senior leadership doesn't always seem to completely understand the market and customers it works with, though there is a current effort to remedy some of this.

Advice to Management

Decisions to procedd with projects needs to be made quicker, waiting for an opportunity to become more realistic tends to be too late.

    Pros

    Pay range seems to be comparable to others like it. Very large company; you can get lost in the mix if you want to.

    Cons

    MINIMAL to no chance of internal promotion. Site leads and up are not equipped for those positions. Managerial expertise is not a pre-requisite for leadership position apparently. Performance evaluations and ratings are not always based on performance; emphasis seems to be based on what site leads or 'acquaintances' may say or 'have heard' about an individual.

    Advice to Management

    Really get to know your people. Promote from within. Rate people based on performance, not 'who said what about who' feedback. Engage people and have genuine concern. Try to keep people, not lose them.

    Pros

    pride in work performed, technical challenges, and location. Employees are dedicated and always willing to work hard and help fellow engineers.

    Cons

    vacation days for years worked lags comparable jobs, could receive better pay elsewhere. Elimination of pension plan for new employees, while following industry trends, was made worse by cutbacks in company contribution to 401k plan. The combination of the two is a huge hit on retirement planning.
