    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements, option to have 9/80 work weeks (9 hour days, every other Fridays off). Pay is okay,

    Cons

    The work is pretty slow. Really old school, traditional company. Shows little appreciation for work done and scrutinize what you do at work. Management doesn't really seem to care about investing in employees (have to fight really hard if you want tuition reimbursement for grad school/higher education). Hours put in > work done/efficiency. Emphasis on putting in hours and showing up but if you work efficiently...

    Advice to Management

    If you want people to enjoy working here and hire talent, you have to start pivoting the company from a traditional environment to a more open and modern space where you encourage creative thinking and reward efficiency.

      Pros

      On a team with engineers around my age and share similar interests

      Cons

      Coworkers contracts end abruptly then everybody gets put on a team with a large amount of money, hard to keep work. Apparently a lot of companies mismanage money frequently.

      I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems

      Pros

      All my coworkers are top of the line willing to help out at any time. We are a Union shop.

      Cons

      The pay is not that good for the work we do. The company is having a hard time finding qualified people to fill the positions they have open because of the low pay scale.

      Advice to Management

      Start for once and listen to the people out on the floor that make all this possible. If it weren’t for all of us there would not be a General Dynamics in the first place.

      Pros

      GDMS is a great place to start your career.

      Cons

      A person can move up only to a point. Do not plan on working up to a manager or leadership position because if you are good at your job they will not promote a person up.

      Advice to Management

      Stop hiring people into technical manager positions that have not done the job that they are going to be in charge of.

        Being a defence company, not optimum for fast moving commercial technologies.

        One size doesn't fit all.
