Great place to work - challenging, but rewarding
Systems engineer (Current Employee) –  Oakdale3 February 2019
Worked here for a number of years now, and still think one of best employers in the industry.

Some exciting new programmes, so getting chance to work on development. Challenging, but great to see progress we are making and the capability we’ll be delivering to British Army.

Have seen many people leave to go and join competitors, but they soon come back.

There’s some areas management could be better, but overall, seem to care about their people and will listen.
Pros
Nine-day fortnight is key benefit - fantastic to get three day weekend every fortnight
Cons
New programmes bring new challlenges, but that’s part of the fun!

Off The Rails
Supply Network (Former Employee) –  Wales1 July 2018
There is no chance to progress at GDUK.

Head-in-sand local management. Ignorant to experience.

Senior Management have the correct vision and drive for profitable operation. Middle Management do not support their seniors in this.

Preventative Action advice not heeded. Disaster. Fix it..
Pros
Retirement
Cons
Middle Management's resistance which undermines company strategy.

Good people working there. Good work life balance. Lack of progression.
Head of Supply Chain for S&RS (Former Employee) –  South Wales6 January 2014
GD is a systems integrator and I was head of supply chain for many projects.
The teams were generally very good.
Not too many people progressed at GD - they tend to hire in people rather than develop their own.
Pros
Good location for me.
Cons
Lack of progression. Unclear management.
