    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    My job was flexible. Worked with the Marines and usually was off when they were.

    Cons

    No real job security. You are treated as expendable and it seems they try to screw you over with pay all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and the turnover rate wouldn't be so high.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, ability to work overtime if desired, constant changing work areas as a contractor, starting pay is decent, some employees are very easy to work with.

    Cons

    The disgruntled employees complain all day long about every little thing, company obviously takes advantage of cheap labor (from Mexico) who can't write in English and can barely speak it. They work hard, but perform jobs incorrectly.

    Pros

    Personal / Professional Growth, must go to east coast for real opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Sky's the limit if you want to go to Corporate. If not it is easy to get stuck with not much potential for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Equal opportunities across the board. Let your people in on the "big Picture" not just an employee number and place filler.

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and great supervisor while I worked there. We had a lot of resources that were available to be called on when needed to help support work we were doing.

    Cons

    There was a lot of "Conflict of Interest" issues with trying to bring in new work. It got to the point that we could not bid on new work because it violated the company's CoI policy. So as contracts ended, employees were terminated because there was nothing for them to work on.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find new contracts to work on and resolve that Conflict of Interest issue with corporate.

    Perfect company that you can use for Gap Employment... Get another job ASAP.

    They don't value talent most top notch companies would. They're 2nd tier to Lockheed, Northrop, and Boeing.

    Close the gap in salaries and benefits in comparison to your competitors....

    "Easy work in a quiet & lax environment, slow pace, low salary & morale"

    Pros

    Easy work
    Decent benefits (though not great)
    Casual Dress
    Lax on hours
    Some people are great (but are overshadowed by the losers)

    Cons

    Low Salary
    Poor Morale (Everyone seems to be looking for another job probably due to above item)
    Raise/promotions are terrible
    No vetting of employees (coworkers sometimes are completely incompetent)
    Bureaucracy halts progress to a standstill
    Performance reviews suck (based on arbitrary goals rather than how much you contribute to the company)
    Some communication problems between managers and employees

    Advice to Management

    Vet your potential employees more...if I don't have to write code, then I worry how easy it is for incompetent losers to get in. Give competetive salaries. Value hard workers and et rid of slackers.
