Pros

GDIT is a solid company with generally responsible leadership. It is customer-focused, ensuring that it meets its contractual obligations, but not to the exclusion of employee well-being. As with any company, individual managers make or break employee experience; mine was very positive. Employee recruiting matched customer contract requirements and they actively sought out people with the right experience for each position, fairly and with respect.

Cons

GDIT has outsourced much of its HR functions. The company they selected was occasionally unprofessional and difficult to deal with. Their security management processes, for example, is a disaster. When the service company called GDIT employees (in response to the GDIT employee's service request), they required that the GDIT employee provide their username and password into the HR system. If *I* called *THEM*, that would be acceptable; however, this implementation of identity verification IS EXACTLY THE EXAMPLE USED in many companies' anti-fraud/information security training. NEVER divulge a system username/password to someone on the phone WHO CALLS *YOU*. And they NEVER got it...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure that all the companies GDIT hires or engages follows industry standard identity verification processes, especially when those companies handle employee personally identifiable information.

    Pros

    I worked for a small company that was bought out by a larger company that was bought out by GDIT. We somewhat still have that small company atmosphere as not much has changed other than corporate policies and politics. That's about the only Pro.

    Cons

    Horrible health insurance, corporate politics.

  2. Low pay compared to their competitors

    Pros

    Perfect company that you can use for Gap Employment... Get another job ASAP.

    Cons

    They don't value talent most top notch companies would. They're 2nd tier to Lockheed, Northrop, and Boeing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the gap in salaries and benefits in comparison to your competitors....
