    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems

    Pros

    large company and if you have no talent then you can join it and get to retirement

    Cons

    The package is has mandatory salary scarifies that you will have not agreed to when you start and there attitude is you should have not taken it. the company creams the pension rather then propping it up. they have dubious dealing including paying back handlers to customer friends to help wining contracts but cant even get it right to work. Some of the staff are really good but most are bums on seats and talent-less but sustain a position my cut throat means. which tends to mean if you have talent you will not last long unless you hide it. They do not win by latent but by crossing palms

    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems

    Pros

    If you don’t have much talent or even knowledge of you specialist area this is a place you can be part of a head count. It pays well but benefits are salary scarified so it might turn out that it does not pay as well as you agreed to also not that relocation has habit of being reduced back after 6months. You will not be work too hard, unless you are actually useful. You can go to coffee when ever you want, in-fact it is encourage. You can get a long easily by just being nice and that will be enough to keep your job as you will not be a threat to other that wish to move on up. Remember there are some excellent staff there too, but they are out numbered

    Cons

    Do not rely on honesty or integrity, senor management scarified that years ago to get where they are. All that maters is the EBIT figure to retain there position. Other lower down the chain are frightened to stick the head out even when they see wrong been done. Some of your pears will be virtually unemployable anywhere else particularly in administration, HR, quality. If you want to do interesting work and work hard then you will be the one working weekend and into the night as its not there culture to break a sweat. However when it come to crunch time they will kick and scream like 2 children.
