    Great company

    Manager Project/Task Lead (Current Employee) Monterey, CA

    ProsGood pay and benefits. Work flexibility. Opportunities to advance, if you're willing to relocate. There isn't any micromanaging.

    ConsThey don't provide training or allowances for education. To grow in the company you must be willing to move around, and relocation isn't supported. Minimal communication with the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecause many positions are contracted, it feels as if employees are separate from GDIT. Communicate with employees to gain loyalty. If employees are doing their job, they are left alone, but they can still be utilized and advanced within the company. Be aware of employees, their strengths and what they can offer to the company. Support education and those wanting to improve.

    Great starter company for a "fresh out of college hire".

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee) Alexandria, VA

    ProsI like the various office locations and government contracts, training and work-life balance.

    ConsLeadership is horrible and unethical when it comes to salary, promotions and annual reviews. I got burned by 3 different departments. As a minority; I did not feel embraced or highly respected by management. It is wise to negotiate your salary properly before investing your time into this company. Once you are in, promotional opportunities are hard to come by (unless you know someone).

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen to your employees. Be fair. Hire, promote and pay fairly across the board!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsThere was a definite tight-knit feel to the company. It went beyond just an employee/employer relationship and made coming to work much more enjoyable and rewarding.

    ConsDue to the nature of the business often times company size was directly based on contracts won. As the contracts come and go so do some people. Sometimes really great employees were lost this way.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
