Pros

Always room for growth within the organization as a whole, but you have to go after it. Many of the contracts are remote locations which can make it hard but it can be done. GD also works hard to retain talent and will work to find you a new position if your contract ends.

Cons

Pay is simply not that competitive. It is hard to retain key employes when the customer and management won't fight to pay them what they are worth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need better bidding on contracts to ensure that quality employees are hired.

    Pros

    GDIT is a good company to work for, and has allot of employment options & locations to to work at worldwide. The benefits & pay are good and managers tend to come from promotion within the company which means they have an understanding of the job and requirements.

    Cons

    Due to the separation of General Dynamics business units, it make it difficult to move from one division to another without allot of work and going between different groups of HR administrators and upper management. This is primarily done to protect the company from Conflict of Interest issues which allows them to bid on many different DoD/Govt. contracts - but in the end can hurt employees options for moving from one job to another which in the end hurts GD because of the loss of qualified, cleared individuals who already are in the GD system & are part of its corporate culture & is an asset loss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to maintain COI protections while integrating a unified HR systems that allows employees to seamlessly move from one business unit to another and apply for internal job postings in all units. Point in case, you can not easily apply for jobs in other business units from GDIT in Teamworks with other business units such as C4 Systems, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems and so on.
