    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    This environment has a wonderful balance of work and life at times when it is slower. And with the deep pockets one can learn and grow here. There is a lot of great areas to work.

    Cons

    Things are constantly held up for long hours because of employees who lack understanding of their job afraid to sign and stamp something that is clearly ready to go to the next level. Their QA manufacturing people are not helpful they stop hardware because someone may have wrote something wrong clerical errors not hardware which they know how to fix but they send stuff back for paper dependencies and you have to go to your project leader and say nothing got done today and fix the paper work. No one owns up and even tries to move stuff along efficiency so it can kind difficult and you have to convince people and beg them to cooperate on normal tasks. I would not call them patriots. I guess somehow things go through but you have to go through so much of the egos & burnout personalities and work around it. It is hard to explain as this is not the case in real world outside government.
