    I worked at General Dynamics full-time

    Pros

    Salary, different shifts to choose from (part time and full time), multiple times to refresh yourself on new and updated information

    Cons

    Shift change every 6 months, too much information to learn in the short amount of time in training so you learn a lot on the floor and as you go, management can be a bit messy and unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    train the supervisors more often and adjust rules and expectations to night shift

    I have been working at General Dynamics full-time

    Pros

    The pros of working for GD are as follows: Benefits, HR department as well as personnel that you work with also the fact that the company promotes professional growth with the company

    Cons

    One of the cons of working for GD would have to be the fact that every 5 years you may be looking for a new position in the company due to your contract coming to an end.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I am pleased with the company and the way that I have been treated so not much advice I can give to management except keep up the great work and continue to strive for better.

    Wake up! While there is much deadwood, they use “workforce reduction” for producers. Laid off after favorable reviews just after significant bday
