    7. 3.0

      Great team, poor compensation

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Good work environment, not overworked, and paid overtime if required. The managers are good, and it is not a toxic environment.

      Cons

      Low pay, and poor opportunity to gain higher pay. The union doesn't do a good job, and therefore you can get better paid for the same job somewhere else.

      Pros

      Great benefits. Every other Friday off. Lots of opportunities to learn. Interesting work.

      Cons

      Contract-based with government institutions so you never what your next project will be or when it might be coming around. Lots of red-tape but is understandable given the nature of the work

      Recent staffing and business changes have made me re-evaluate my career direction

      Apr 2, 2022 - Senior Software Engineer in Calgary, AB

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Company really "got it" when Covid hit, pivoting to a sensible work from home stance with lots of flexibility for hybrid/mixed work environments.

      Cons

      Recent staffing adjustments and corporate restructurings, especially with their decision to move back to waterfall development from their first (rather weak truthfully) attempt at Agile (GD is/was a practitioner of SAFe [Scaled Agile Framwork for Engineering]) have really made me question my decision as a relatively recent engineering graduate to join GD. Going "back to waterfall" from Agile does not sound like a career trajectory I want to be associated with.

      Pros

      Good people, great benefits, compressed Fridays off

      Vacation is tricky, too busy to take time off sometimes. Deadlines are deadlines.
