    Pros

    Good shift that doesn't change. Don't have to take calls as often.

    Cons

    Horrible management and leads. Favoritism at its worst. It feels like high school. Too many rules and expectations. Nobody does their job and they expect others to do it. They don't actually care about coaching the Representatives as long as the monitors get done they are fine. It's all about quantity not quality to them.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to who you hire. Stop favoritism. You should actually care about the quality and not just how many monitors get done right.

    Pros

    OT, Everything run by computer, No preferential treatment (firm run by computers);

    Cons

    Very Military; computer runs everyone. stained carpets, no decorations, absolutely no thinking outside the box. Limited growth potential. Common to be there 10 yrs and only make $15/hr ; Shifts change every 6 mos & little control of the shift you'll get. Everything monitored, be ready to have belongings searched at any time, as well as your desk, and even your purse; Do not work for this company; Constant turn-over; Every minute has to be accounted for....treated like someone without any rights. Customers are allowed to be verbally abusive and there's no recourse for the employee.

    Advice to Management

    You couldn't pay me enough to stay at this company.

    Horrible management, all levels. Culture? Values? Zero out of ten. If you want to be oppressed and bullied, you will love this.

    Pros

    I wish I could think of something.

    Cons

    It was obvious that this was GDIT's first attempt at running a call center. Did not care about their staff, no organization. Very low morale. Never followed through with anything. A lot of talk no action.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that your staff is your reason for being. Be proactive, not reactive. Do not talk unless you plan to follow through. Lead by example.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to listen to its people on how better to involve better ideas.

    Pros

    It is close to where I live and that us the only good thing I could say about that place.

    Cons

    Thsi the worst disorganized, unprofessional place I have ever worked and I have worked in some bad bad places in Florida. This is a very unstable state when it comes to employment being a so called "right to work state" They tend to treat employees worst tgan dirt

    Advice to Management

    Management is bad real bad. They are rude and should learn about "manners" and "ethics" these people never heard of the word. Overall, managers you are no good learn to respect people you'll get more out of them and they will stay. This company has a huge turnover.

  8. Changes needed

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    GDIT does an excellent job of getting vendors paid. At times I have gotten a vendor paid within 15 days of invoicing.

    Cons

    GDIT senior management is populated by persons who are unequipped by either training or experience to run the business. The finance and accounting departments are extremely good, but operations is allowed to go there own way with respect to compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley Act. GDIT has a large population of ex military officers and NCO's who are assumed to possess management skill by the senior level management at GDIT. Unfortunately, being an officer or NCO does not qualify you to manage an organization in the private competitive sector. GDIT manages it's wireless services business as if it is working for the DOD. Unfortunately that does not cut it in the non-governmental sector. GDIT has lost market share in the telecommunications services sector as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Spin off the telecommunications services part of the business from the part of GDIT that does government work. Staff it with people who have succeeded and made money in the private sector.

    Pros

    None, I think this is a really bad company to work for.

    Cons

    Management is irresponsible, my boss was horrible and rude, management did nothing to address issues. Management often lied, talk bad about customer behind their back.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. Care about your employees a little.

  10. Poor management that lacks the conviction to realize its long-term goals.

    Pros

    The dental and vision insurance are great. Some great people and interesting tasks to work on from time to time.

    Cons

    Management is limited in its ability to follow through on long term goals for the division. Knee jerk reactions to short term influences have destabilized the organization and caused the most qualified people to leave over the past year. It is difficult to get approval for training. Communication throughout the organization is poor. The 401k match is the lowest of any company I've worked for in the industry (3%). The organization is also top heavy, with an incredible number of directors, sr. directors, and VPs.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with all of the employees in your management structure. Maintain conviction in long term goals - you set them for a reason. Modifications in strategy are to be expected, but radical alterations in direction cause stress among employees, causing the best to leave.

    Pros

    Pros? I can't think of a single one. I guess the health insurance was alright and decently priced and 401k was ok.

    Cons

    It's not a fun place to work. It is all about the numbers and not about actually helping the people.

    Advice to Management

    Make it fun to work there instead of counting numbers so much each day. Make the employees feel important instead of just a body filling a chair.
