    I have been working at General Dynamics full-time

    Pros

    Decent work life balance if you are allowed to take advantage of it.

    Cons

    Management hasn't a clue at the amount of work that goes into EHS. Mgt does not take accountability for safety and enjoys to finger point. The pay and benefits are below industry standard. No ability to move up unless you in the good ole clique.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a great job if you are an engineer or from the north. Stop working people to the brink of a breakdown and buy into safety.
