Pros

Easy to interview. The manager in charge of the project was good.

Cons

Too many other managers. One manager did not even know the content of the project leaving the tasks to 1 experienced employee and 1 new person. No project was ever denied even when there was no man-power left to perform a task. People were reprimanded by management for bringing up possible solutions to saving more jobs. Also reprimanded for not getting proper training within the company and being expected to know too much after 3 months. No gratitude for working 50 hours a week as an intern just to get projects accomplished. Very disappointed with how they treat a new person. Promises of a position with benefits but no follow through.

Advice to Management

Do not grant people management roles when they do not even know what their team is doing. Management should facilitate meetings. That's why they are managers.

    Pros

    The benefits were good and the pay was average. I enjoyed working with the customers.

    Cons

    There was no training provided to employees. Management was dishonest and secretive about future contracts. So, massive layoffs were a shock to everyone. Management actually reprimanded employees who spoke about the possibility of not winning a major contract and subsequent, inevitable layoffs.There was always too much focus on office politics and not enough on the actual work or customer needs. GDIT provided no chance for growth. They kept employees at a junior level while tasking them to do lead/supervisory work to avoid paying higher salaries. The most disturbing thing is management's encouragement of bullying in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    You should be honest with your employees!
