    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked for GDIT for more than 10 years and overall it has been a good experience. Pay seems to be about average but that depends on your skills and negotiating, and there are always opportunities available if you want to relocate or work overseas.

    Cons

    Not much negative to speak of, but education benefits are slowly being eroded; I've already completed my degrees so this is a non-issue for me.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time

    Pros

    Like all the others, health benefit costs are being shifted to employees. Pay is decent, management is pretty good. It really comes down to whether you get a good contract / customer how things will go.

    Cons

    Typical contracting company- if they have something, they will try to help place you, if they don't, well.....
    Your networking and connections within the company will make a big difference in your survival across contracts.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salaries and benefits. Strong ethical work environment. Technical expertise on tasks.

    Cons

    Moving away from continued training and certification opportunities due to cost cutting; yearly reorganization to satisfy wall street is taking a toll on morale at mid management levels; unhealthy competition for same work between divisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganize for mid-management focus on opportunities - Health & Civil Services, Intel, and DOD spaces without overlaps. Move programs and eliminate redundant sectors.

    Former Employee - Systems Engineer in Warrenton, VA
    Former Employee - Systems Engineer in Warrenton, VA

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good management, good clients. Great place to work. Compensation is on the low-end, but training and educational opportunities more than make up for the low compensation.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is a problem.
    Too many overtime hours is a common complaint.
    Low compensation
    Good to poor management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure work activity management is used.
