    They offer a one-time bonus. I would have preferred the bonus be eliminated and had been given the opportunity to incorporate it into the salary.

    Med insurance sucks, only one plan and it's a high deductible HSA.

    Benefits especially health care have been reduced to unacceptable. Had to go to my spouse's health plan to get the coverage I felt I needed. PHAP only, very high deductible plans offered.

    The health insurance is ok

    The medical benefits are top notch.

    If you are on the GSA contract and you need employee coverage only, with no dependants, you do no pay a premium for the HMO health insurance because it is paid already through the hourly wage benefit.

    The General Dynamics (GD IT) benefits package hasn't changed in the past few years and has been through CIGNA Government Services. Either you take their HMO plan which is free (a PRO) or you pay nearly $100 for yourself alone for their PPO plan (a CON) and they offer you nothing in-between. I have been declined MRI's, for back injury, shoulder injuries, serious medical concerns for breast cancer and other medical issues along these lines for the past two years and CIGNA does nothing to help but only argues with my doctors. The insurance is terrible, but not as horrible as the HSA they just placed all the Lead staff on... This company needs to seriously focus on health benefits for their employees, they are always pushing for us to be healthier but how can we when they won't put out any good money to get their employee's any good medical insurance coverage?

    All the standard offerings, nothing extra special.

    The health insurance was actually pretty good, with a $0 plan available for full-time employees. You could also get vision and dental. Benefits started after two months of employment. Paid vacation started at one year of employment. There were several paid holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.) as well.

    All in all not bad benefits. I do not take advantage of them all so I cannot comment in great detail past what I have provided.
