I have been working at General Dynamics Information TechnologyPros
The work is interesting due to the client base, all Federal Gov. or DoD.
Mostly run as a respectful large company, very cautious about ethics, but also flexible on an individual basisCons
They work from contract to contract. Once your project is over, you have to find something else or change jobs. There is very little matrixing of one employee to several different jobs.
I was hired at a lower grade than my qualifications due to an existing opening. Now after proving my worth many times, I am having difficulty getting the promotion and raise I think is justified by my performance and peer review.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be more judicious in handling hiring, raises, transfers, and promotions.
Consider sharing people across different activities for more continuity and reduced struggle in recruiting.RecommendsApproves of CEO
