I worked at General Dynamics full-time (More than 3 years)
GD was a very inclusive environment when I started working there, great benefits, great management, awesome team environment, and plenty of opportunities for growth.
After growing in size, GD was hit by the contracting environment and the benefits became pretty standard to the market, as well as all of the really great managers moved on to new positions - still a good company, but they are pretty comparable to the rest of the large corporations, nothing to set them apart from the rest.
Advice to Management
Overall I enjoyed my employment, but one thing that stood out was the amount of middle management there was towards the end of my time there. The bigger the company becomes the more leadership levels there are - cut back on middle management and give back to the ground level employees, there will be more employee satisfaction, and a better chance that employees choose to stay rather than looking elsewhere.
