Pros

good corporate culture, retains talent at all costs

Cons

margins are small these days, bonus pay, paying for school, performance bonuses, and maintaining certifications are few and far between these days. Things are tight and getting tighter....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

it's cheaper to retain hard working people, than to go out and find new ones

    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

    Great people. The recruiting team members are awesome, friendly and always willing to help.

    Cons

    It's contract work so there is no solid stability. A large contract could be lost and you could be out of a job the following week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, but be more open to your employees ideas and suggestions.
