    Role gave experience in several positions over the 2 year graduate scheme, which is great to find what aspects of Engineering your interested in.

    Pros

    Worked with a great team, supporting a great cause! Compensation was very competitive and coworkers were helpful and willing to take time during the learning curve.

    Cons

    My only complain was that I was injured on the job and had to use my own vacation time while I was out of work. Was not eligible for workers compensation for some reason, which I didnt really understand.

    Pros

    My experience with GD was that GD is interested in engineering success. I found this company to be very interested in meeting goals and, conversely, not so involved in internal politics as is common with other companies. This company was a breath of fresh air where everyone worked to make things work, as opposed to other companies where engineers work to build and maintain empires.

    Cons

    I only worked for GD for 2 years. I would have to concoct a "CON" here. I guess the only CON is that I don't work for them now.

    Advice to Management

    ...no advice.
