Employee - Analyst / Associate

I recommend GD to smooth out the peaks and troughs of funding so that wholesale redundancies and bulk employment are not required.

Employee - Analyst / Associate

Fun but business-like work culture.

Employee - Analyst / Associate

The workforce grows and shrinks with the tide.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

There needs to be more advancement for qualified females.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

When I was there women were not given many opportunities

Employee - Vice President (VP, SVP, EVP, etc.)

Results oriented and very collaborative work culture.

Employee - Vice President (VP, SVP, EVP, etc.)

They know their business.

Employee - Analyst / Associate

The diversity was very good.

Employee - Director

No upward mobility, poor leadership, no decision making ability.

Employee - Director

Very top down "do as I say not as I do" old school type of leadership.

Employee - Director

Expect to make good money, work long hours, have no recognization, no company events, the atmosphere is like a morgue and work with people who are rude and cut throats to climb the ladder.

Employee - Vice President (VP, SVP, EVP, etc.)

The part of GD that I worked for did not recognize or reward initiative, and the most senior leadership was a "good old boys' club".

Employee - Analyst / Associate

Due to a lack of vision for future work opportunities the company has had to shed 80% of its work force. What is left are either near retirement executives and new hires who have not been mentored.

Employee - Analyst / Associate

It used to be a good company. That is why I took a job with them. Things went downhill fast as new contracts were not around and this contributed to a massive shrinkage in the work force and the loss of training and mentoring from superiors.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

The fear-based management style is something I'd change.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

Culture was a fear based performance management, top down decisions, extremely low morale, lack of trust, do as I say not as I do, punishing, and no reward for performance.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

You cannot trust management.

Employee - Director

The culture needs adjustments. They don't remove bad/ineffective leaders. They simply re-org them

Employee - Director

DoD centric. Not a bad thing, but they tried to apply it to all customer markets which cause a lot of problems, including handling of classified information. There were multiple serious security infractions in their facilities and only action form the management from a fraction of those reported.

Employee - Director

There are brilliant leaders, but there are also exceptionally bad leaders who act without ethics or regard to others. I was ashamed, as a women, see how my female management at the SVP and Director levels behaved. Abusive and disrespectful to others, but the opposite to upper management.
