    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time

    Pros

    Excellent employee benefits, annual raises, fair promotions, and great employee support programs (gym reimbursement, pretax childcare deductions, continued education, conferences).

    Cons

    Workload expectations were sometimes unrealistic. Talent aquisition was not as experienced as needed.

    Advice to Management

    Promote less unexperienced individuals from within, take advantage of experienced job shopper contracts, hire more experienced/educated employees that fit the job requirements.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time

    Pros

    Pay is average, benefits are good.

    Cons

    There are no specifications to follow and the work includes getting thrown at a machine with little to no guidance. Engineering is sub par and at many times I question the safety of the workplace. No one takes their job seriously because "we just make shoes" so maintenance is usually done partially.

    Advice to Management

    This place needs new engineers. It's a billion dollar company ran like a 3rd world start up.

    Pros

    Flexible, decent benefits, lateral movement is possible to explore what you are interested in. If you show you are interested, they will see it and you will be given opportunities.

    Cons

    I don’t see many cons. Benefits could be a little better. Really it’s a great company. Will be interesting to see how it looks once the rollover of military defense comes.

    Advice to Management

    None
