    I have been working at General Dynamics Mission Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Rank and file engineers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Many mid and upper managers are unqualified. You often find they are empty suits that can only talk a game and are offended when you ask for an explanation. Often willing to put profit over ethics, and it is not working. Look at the stock price.

    Advice to Management

    The new GDMS management is on the right track cleaning out some upper level hollow managers, but they need to go a level lower.
