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.

Busy, high tempo environment developing and delivering defense equipment to the British Army. Great opportunity to learn new skills after leaving the Armed forces.

Terrible place to work.
Un realistic production targets.

Poor management and bullying environment

Was promised a loyalty bonus if you stayed till end of project. Instead management found ways to sack people.

Avoid at all costs.

Place was very small and too many people were getting injured bad health and safety.

Nobody really knew what they were doing.

Employed ex soldiers who knew nothing about proper rebuilding of vehicles.
Pros
None.
Cons
Not enough tools to complete job.

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!

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.
