Same mistakes over and over.
GD does deal with some very firm deadlines. To achieve them, the managers will typically work their team to death during the last month - 6 weeks of a project. We then pat ourselves on the back for "going the extra mile" to get the job done, and the repeat the process with the next cycle. Nothing ever changes.
Pros
Working on systems that truly make a difference
Cons
Corporate culture is soul destroying

Dynamic Workplace and Great company culture!
Large organization so there is a lot to learn and grasp within its processes. Readily available resources nearby.

Great workplace culture where employee engagement and level of transparency is encouraged. If you enjoy having a sense of ownership of your work and are a team player, GDMS-C is a great place to be. Both management and colleagues are willing to give a lending hand when needed.


Overall, dynamic, fast-paced and there's always something new to be involved in.

Extremely Professional and Exciting Place To Work
GD provided me the opportunity to do my second internship there and I accepted wholeheartedly. I was welcomed with an incredibly smart team of engineers that assisted me as I worked towards understanding the complex product as well as adapting to the new work environment.

Work is exciting as I was exposed to brand new tools I hadn't used before, closed office space that allowed 100% focus and a company culture that is incredibly professional as it is fun.

Good place to work
Relatively good job security in the tech/engineering industry due to long project cycles.
Benefits are not great but roughly inline with the industry in Calgary.

The facility here is pretty good overall with fairly updated equipment.

Salary is the main concern, well below average for Calgary from my perspective. This would be the place to work until retirement if it paid more or had some sort of retirement plan.
Pros
Good approachable management and a happy place to work. Free parking
Cons
no free coffee, does not have a diverse culture

Great place to work!
Started at GDMS a month ago and couldn’t be happier!
Management makes their expectations very clear and are very supportive of their staff.

Everyone in my department has been nothing but friendly and helpful and I couldn’t feel more welcomed!

The company really strive to create a good work life balance and there are great services available to staff. Lots of great perks too like on site gym and cafeteria, discounted phone and insurance rates, and the ability to work a compressed schedule!
Pros
Gym, flexible schedules, benefits

Pros
Great VP who cares

No Direct Management

Great place to work if you get in there.
Good work environment, pressure is moderate, diverse work. Management is respectful and appreciating.
However, they'd rather spend money on computers, good monitors, technological equipment and coffee machines instead of new office furniture.

Poor management style
Amazing coworkers, poor management involvement for certain managers (more than a few). Only contact you when they need something. Feels very impersonal and rude. Most enjoyable is the people they mass hire. Hardest part is seeing people get mass lay-offs after deadlines. Hardest part of the job is also meeting the ridiculous deadlines without the mass hiring.
Pros
good coworkers
Cons
long hours, little recognition from management
