Great experience. Long hours and hard work that gets forgotten about when the bottom line is the discussion.

I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology

Pros

Large company with the means and resources to provide the best equipment and training. Excellent benefits package and pay checks are always on-time.

Cons

Company is so large you get lost in the numbers. GD has started contracting most jobs, which makes job security ZERO!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees are people too. We have family's that we have to provide for. GD is large enough to keep employees on payroll, even when work gets slow. Remember who gets the job done in the field.

    Pros

    Quick hiring process, low work expectations, relaxed attitude. Whether this is a list of pros or cons is up to your internal ambition.

    Cons

    While GDIT is ok for a starter job mid-career searchers should look elsewhere. There is little room for advancement of engineers making it a dead-end job unless you move on reasonably quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the internal organization does not have a homogenous background. A mix of specialties that feel comfortable providing different viewpoints is essential to a well-rounded organization. Also you may want to make sure that at least one person who will actually be doing the work has seen the proposal. Blind promises with no understanding of the effort required does not make for a great work environment.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology

    Pros

    Great job security, especially for a company that relies on contracts with the government. Salary is better than most other companies.

    Cons

    Unknown when it comes to contract renewals. Sometimes difficult when HQ makes decisions without thinking about those in the field. Not a lot more that I can say that is negative.
