    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.

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

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, supportive leadership, ability to work from home whenever I want, top of the line technology. Will pay for almost any certification I would want to get to enhance my skills.

    Cons

    Room for growth in this company requires you stay for 10+ years and then get the big bump up. Raises are minimal yearly no more than 3%.
