Not the government, but it feels like it
Senior Analyst - Government Compliance (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA8 July 2013
Government contracting is a unique sphere. Even though GD is not a government entity, it is strongly regulated by the governmental entities for whom it works. Therefore, pay and advancement are not based on merit or talent, but upon seniority. The good news is, it's hard to get fired. But if you have ambition to excel and advance up the ladder, you'll have to leave. That's what I did. I left for a lot more money after I was turned down for a promotion and asked to train my new boss whose only qualification for the position was 30 years at the company.
