I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time

Pros

Good resume builder (on paper only), but not for long term employment.

Cons

Exploitative practices toward junior staff (cash cows used to underbid on contracts). Many in management do not know how to team build and develop talent. Failure to promote a meritocracy. Also, the unavoidable of contract work, instability of contract work sometimes brings out the worst in co-workers by feeding their insecurities.

Advice to Management

It would not surprise me if the quality of your product will decline and suffer if you continue to only value the bottom line and not your employees as well. When your employees are more concerned with undercutting other employees that they see as competition than honing their individual technical skills and abilities, innovation and product quality suffers. In your effort to be competitive with other companies, you have promoted unhealthy competition within the individual teams that needs to work together. Intra-team competitiveness (vs. collaboration) is a cancer that is destroying the products and services you are suppose to be delivering. In summation, yes, you have a culture problem manifesting at the lowest levels (the worker bees) but originating at management levels that will impact your product/services.

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None! Avoid GDIT at all cost or they will damage your career................................................

    Cons

    Unstable management that likes to play mind games with their staff to maintain disorder and confusion. Bait & Switch tactics: Human Resources will make commitments that will not be delivered upon employment even though it's in writing. Will site a change in company policy as an excuse...................................

    Advice to Management

    Terminate and replace GDIT management with BFI drivers. The outcome will be identical..........................................

    Pros

    Big Company and it looks good on your resume

    Cons

    -Managers overwork the entry level employees, no recognition for good work, employees have been bullied, talked down to, and have no respect for employees who are in the manager's "inner circle". Compensation is horrible
