    I worked at General Dynamics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work in High Performance computing was exhilarating. Most of the materials and developments were at minimum 10 to 15 years ahead of the latest and greatest that could even be bought as prototypical.

    Cons

    being moved task wise from HPC to production was a huge let down, it was work - yes but "production" will never be research and development.

    Advice to Management

    to management: give an honest ear to the work force (multiple levels), they have ideas for improvement, cost cutting, and how to simplify the task at hand.
