Ain't so bad :)

I like working here. If you pull your weight and have an open mind in terms of understanding the reality of the defense industry's situation, you can do well here. It's the dead weight that do 99% of the complaining, and they are the loudest.

The people that enjoy working here don't have time for nonsense like complaining about a company on the internet. Don't believe the hype!

Continued layoffs

GDC4S continues to layoffs is employees to compensate for its leadership ineptness Yet accountability and action at the leadership level is non existent.
Major changes and reductions are needed with the president and the vast amount of VPs
Any young engineer would have to be pretty hard up to come to GDC4 S

Lack There of

I have been working for the Land Systems side of the house for over 7yrs and before that I had 20 plus years of expirience of Army Logistics, what I have found in my time of employment is the lack of leadership especially from Auburn. There is no standard, no fair and equal treatment,morale is low due to the lack of quallified experienced supervisors. There is no support from Upper Management ( Warehouse Manager) so what is left is a very unhappy hostile working enviroment filled with threats and unfair work practices.

I was laid off from general dynamics land systems because my evaluation was low because I was off on a sick leave with a terriblemental illness.

Lousy company

A long time employee, I have experienced a very tyrannical and cruel management style. Aso we lived under the constant threat of firings and we did indeed see many excellent employees walked out which sscared us even more as these actions seemed totally unwarranted. They also very quietly and slowly, so as to not attract attention, rid themselves of the older employees who have the larger salaries. Then they can hire newly educated younger personnel and literally get a two-for-the-price-of-an-old-one deal. They do not view their employees as anything of value. A terrible company, and I would never recommend any of my qualified relatives go to work for them. Compared to other defense contractors for whom I have worked, GD is really the bottom of the barrel.

I just really hope that things get better for me within this company. Right now, I do not feel as if I am being used to the highest of my potential. I would really like for the managers to give me a chance to show them how much I really can contribute to the company instead of assuming that I'm young and inexperienced.

Pay is not the greatest, especially when compared with other commercial companies, but it's reasonable. Human resource is dedicated to protecting corporate policies instead of protecting employees' jobs. Layoffs occur here on quarterly basis while no such benefits are given to them who are let go.

Severance Packages??????

Anyone able to offer intel on whether they offer severance packages to those laid off?

By John G
I did get any -- but was only there 1 1/2 years

The workforce is older here because the new ones are not retained for longer period of time and are laid off when ever the economy slows unless they can find the right sponsors or mentors within the old boys' network. The senior leadership doesn't seem to understand the fast changing market and customers it works with, though there is a current effort to remedy some of this. We are working under lot of stress and striving to protect our jobs.
