    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.

    I have been working at General Dynamics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No micromanagement, get to meet nice and knowledgeable people, excellent networking capabilities. I learn more from conversing with my coworkers than from my project.

    Cons

    Low tech, bureaucratic, no sense of job importance. For a recent college grad, this is far below my standards for a "high tech" company.

    Advice to Management

    If everything does get better with a clearance, have hr go through the effort of instilling hope in bored new hires.
