Manufacturing Engineer,
Years at General Dynamics: 3
“We are all focused on the same mission of providing quality and timely solutions to our customer, we have each other’s back and there isn’t a problem we can’t solve together.”

Describe life at General Dynamics Mission Systems in three words.

Meaningful, flexible, cutting-edge

What is special about working at General Dynamics?

Although I will most likely never wear a U.S. Navy uniform or step foot on an active Navy vessel, I know that I am supporting our nation’s Navy by delivering products that improve the lives of our service men and women so they can protect our country and return home safely. Many of us often thank our service men and women, but not many can say they thank you back; I can and that is very special!

Describe your team…What is integral to building a strong team?

We are all focused on the same mission of providing quality and timely solutions to our customer, we have each other’s back and there isn’t a problem we can’t solve together. There are numerous times I have both asked for and provided help; a strong team depends on trusting your colleagues to be reliable when you need them.

What’s your favorite benefit of working at General Dynamics?

Having a 9/80 schedule with every-other-Friday off is something I overlooked when I first considered a position with General Dynamics, but now that it has been reality for the last three years, it’s honestly hard to imagine
working five days every week!
