I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than a year

Pros

The company pays well and they look to higher and promote from within. Many jobs at GDIT are based on military contracts so your milegage may vary depending on the specific contract details. As far as being a contractor goes, I have work for a few companies and GDIT is without a doubt the best.

Cons

They promise educational benefits then you (likely) will be told there is not enough money in the budget to provide any assistance with college tuition, certification, or educational materials. Insurance benefits are costly. The lowest deductible for insurance is $3000 which means that you have to pay $3000 out of pocket before ANYTHING is covered. As long as you don't mind paying full price for most of the year it's not too bad. Company should offer more training opportunites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Either offer true educational benefits or stop saying that employees are eligible for them

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay was slightly higher than the local standards for similar work, the medical, dental, and vision care were top notch. The 401k match was nice and you were 100% from day one.

    Cons

    The commute was a little less than desirable but if you live and work in the Hampton Roads area you just deal with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and bring more jobs to the area.
