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

    Pros

    Interesting hardware and good knowledgeable co-workers.

    Cons

    No wfh. Teams only stay together until end of project. Constantly reminded of repercussions of getting time reporting wrong. "We had to let people go because of incorrect time reporting" was brought up at every all-hands. 10% doing fun development. 90% Going through motions of the required rigid process due to being gov defense contractor.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Taunton, MA
    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interesting environment to work in depending on which team you work on. An understanding and navigation of the culture can be a great influence of how well you do. It's good to take a step aside to view the bigger picture and figure out if the mission is worth the pain. Prioritize family and friends if you need to. Always remember that time is the most valuable thing you can give and someone can give to you. Share it with a place you love. A decent internship wage and initial salary to help pay student debt off.

    Cons

    I've experienced excessive bureaucracy, discrimination, and felt unsafe at times depending on the situation or who you are on the totem pole. Be aware of the politics inside and outside of the workplace as there may be a direct or indirect affect on your short term or long term career goals. There were times I felt degraded and a few sleepless nights and a few weekends of work consumed me. I reflect hoping years of my life were not a wasted effort. Make sure to do a 80/20 and are not constantly grinding at the problems at work. Constant grinding can lead to little or no exposure to playing office politics which may help. Watch out for the corporate hazing rituals. I wasn't onboarded when I first started full time and was left out to dry in the end. The China-US trade war has had collateral damage to the Asian-Americans which include defamation, damage to interpersonal relationships between friends, family, and colleagues. Work here when the world is a bit warmer.
