        "Great company"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Current Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in Scottsdale, AZ

          I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems

          Pros

          Flexible, decent benefits, lateral movement is possible to explore what you are interested in. If you show you are interested, they will see it and you will be given opportunities.

          I don’t see many cons. Benefits could be a little better. Really it’s a great company. Will be interesting to see how it looks once the rollover of military defense comes.

          Advice to Management

          None
