    Pros

    Pay, benefits, and growth opportunities are good and there are opportunities to contribute in a meaningful way. This is a brand new office in a cool area (3rd Ward) of town so there is quite a lot of bars and restaurants close to the office. the company is paying for my parking too.

    Cons

    New office, so policies and procedures are still being developed. There has been quite a bit of construction, so the environment has been somewhat disruptive and congested, but that seems to be getting better.

    Advice to Management

    More communication about how the different businesses are doing.

  2. Great Place to Work

    Pros

    GD offers many learning opportunities, great benefits including medical, optical and dental insurances, 401-K, and vacation. They are very supportive of family and aware of your life outside of employment.

    Cons

    As GD is a global company, you have to be willing to work with International Divisions and Companies within all aspects of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow your employees. You are doing a great job!

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Everyone is willing to share information and help one another.

    Cons

    If your a person of color there is very little opportunity for advancement. This is a white male dominated environment.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit at minority job fairs, have more minorities in senior positions, and have more respect for your current employees. Do not be intimidated by diversity, but embrace it. Get rid of the good ole boys and bring in people with more forward thinking. Stop hiring and promoting based on looks.

    Pros

    The people are reasonable. There are very few "difficult" people. Everyone that works hard, and keeps a cool head is honored and offered promotional opportunity as they arise.

    Cons

    Location. Although Sedalia has most of what anyone could need, people who like living in large cities might not be used to it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Be sure to take notice of those whose work generally goes unnoticed. Small recognition goes a long way here. Empowering people to take charge of their responsibilities without micro management is a real strength here.
