      At the project level, sometimes painfully risk-averse Government customers end up tying our hands in times w/r/t ability to innovate or use modern tools Bureaucracy is here, and occasionally chafes a bit

      I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Industry standard medical benefits Frequent information exchange from managers Company has a culture of giving back to the community. Flexible work arrangements.

      Cons

      No relocation offered for hires with less than 20yrs experience. 10 holidays while competitors offer 12 Low PTO offerings. History of taking away PTO Dumpy facilities, many lights don't work in the hallways. Sort of like working in a cave Aggressive hiring tactics

      Advice to Management

      Get with the times and update your benefit offerings. New parent leave, more holidays, more PTO are all offered by other DoD contractors. Your market research may tell you otherwise but I speak from experience. Update the work environment, its dingy and dark.

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

      Pros

      I worked at GDMS for a very short time (<1yr), but really loved how employees got treated there. Management really tried hard to keep employees happy. GDMS is located in Scottsdale, which is in the nicer part of Phoenix. 9/80 work schedule which allows you to take every other Friday off. The "decompression room" has nice big screen TV, with X-box and Playstation along with pingpong table and foosball table. 401k matching...

      Cons

      The company can't seem to win any work contracts. Maybe marketing department needs to step up their level. Due to this, your job might not be very stable. Engineering tools (SW/HW) and workstations are a bit dated, not keeping up with the outside world.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the good work, and keep on improving.
