  5. "Engineering Intern: Okay for a first internship"

    3.0
    Former Intern - Intern 
    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook

    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems for less than a year

    Pros

    My manager was excellent and facilitated some great leadership development talks with various leaders within the company. If I wanted to go check out a different group or see a particular part of the company umbrella, my manager made it happen.

    Cons

    No housing allowance or relocation allowance is brutal for student workers. Due to the nature of the work, it's rare that interns were given any work that felt meaningful. The slow nature of government work is also not a good time.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems for less than a year

    Pros

    Gained a lot of experience in IT systems. Pay is good.

    Cons

    Very slow work environment. I frequently asked for more work and sat around most days - not great for an intern. My manager let me go at the end of the internship after 8 months of no communication regarding my performance (I even got a raise). Management treats us like numbers and if you're not a rockstar your career will be stagnant.
