Decent Place to Work
Business Manger (Current Employee), MarylandJuly 26, 2015
Cons: Poor Growth opportunities for junior level employees, no training opportunities at all
GDAIS is in the process of merging with another GD business and updating everything. The work life balance has been nice with a 9/80 work schedule and the ability to work from home a few days a month.

Large, corporate atmosphere with very little room for growth
Cost Analyst (Former Employee), Santa Clara, CAJune 1, 2015
Pros: Overtime seldom required, 9/80 schedule
Cons: Lacking company culture, little room for growth, very boring
If you're under 35, good luck trying to fit in here. The average age is probably closer to 40-45 or maybe older, with many employees only sticking around because they're waiting to get their pensions. There's very much an old boys' club atmosphere since a lot of folks have been there for 25 years or more and for many, their tenure at GD spans their entire career. As such, there's very little room for growth while you're expected to just play your part and won't learn much outside the confines of your specific role. Management largely doesn't care about your career development because they're often not even located in the same office or state.

Pros: work life balance is great
Cons: no raises and no promotions
It is a steady source of income but it comes without raises not even cost of living. They do not promote from within and moral is low throughout production. Resources are hard to acquire to get the job done. Work life balance is excellent they are very understanding about family issues and the schedule is very flexible.

Very diverse environment, definitely a place to advance your skills
Network Engineer (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZOctober 30, 2014
Pros: you can work from home if you want too
Cons: distance between coworkers make it hard to get along on a "friendly" level.
Typical day at work is pretty fast pace. Need to deal with outages with specific applications and devices across America. I have learned Wireless, linux/unix, and nexus. My coworkers are spread out throughout the united states. I only have one other coworker in AZ because he and I manage 2 huge sites in AZ. The hardest part of the job is getting a hold of necessary resources (people) when things hit the fan. The most enjoyable thing about my job is that it gives me the time and space to learn something new almost everyday!

Management Decisions come at expense to employees
Systems Engineer (Current Employee), Pittsfield, MAJanuary 22, 2014
Recent management decisions have come at the expense of employees when it comes to Healthcare, Sick Leave, PTO, Tuition reimbursement. The benefits still exist, but induces more cost on the employees. Aside from that the people are nice to work, and the work challenges faced are enjoyable and allow for continued growth and travel.
