Fast paced & fun work place.
Naval Ship Repair Material Manager (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAJuly 15, 2014
Pros: i make $23hr
Cons: no room to advance for at least 12 years
I started at Metro Machine three months after I separated from service, which was sold to General Dynamics along with three other companies. I like my job, but the opportunity for advancement has gone up in smoke due to the managers who have been at Earl Industries or Metro for 20+ years. I like the companies direction, but I have a skill set meant – more... for a management position.

My wife and I are from the Triad of N.C. We would like to move closer to home to be with aging family. This is the perfect opportunity to find employment until retirement and be able to move. – less

Fun work and lots of good people
Engineer (Current Employee), Sterling Heights, MIJuly 14, 2014
The work is good and the people are generally better. Just seems as though the defense industry is on the decline and the benefits keep getting reduced in some manner via frozen pensions, lesser match on 401k, frozen promotions. Doesn't seem like a stable place. Everything is based on government funding, so if it goes you go with it.

Too many inconsistancies in managment.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), London, KYJuly 8, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: inconsistancies in information
The new healthcare law made this job very stressful. No one ever knew for sure answers to many questions. The pay and benefits were very good though. My co-workers were equally as amazing. My manager did the best she could and I respected her for that. The hardest part of the job for me was the suicide call.

Customer Service Rep (Current Employee), Sandy, UTJuly 6, 2014
Pros: good health care, fun coworkers
Cons: changing rules, angry consumers
General Dynamics isn't like any job I have ever done before. Its very structured, they have a lot of rules and are expected to be followed. This job is perfect for those who pay attention to detail and don't mind being very busy and in some cases having to find ways to entertain yourself.

Generally a good place to work .
Construction Supervisor (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 3, 2014
Pros: home officed
Cons: poor health care plans
My day usually started with phone calls to the lead people of our many general contractors . Followed with site visits checking on job quality and job progress , always ensuring that the men where working safely . Interfacing with co-workers was always helpful for everyone involved when dealing with unforeseen issues . The hardest part of the job would've – more... been all the windshield time and hotels . But , meeting new people on the projects was always good . – less
