    Great people!

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time

    Pros

    In my tenure at GDIT, I have come to appreciate many of the exceptional people that work there. Many give their work their heart and soul. This is consistent with the legacy company that existed.

    Cons

    Senior leadership needs to remember that what made the company great are the people that work for them; not the other way around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people doing the work.

    Former Employee - Manager

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is excellent, Benefits Okay and Training Offered on a Regular Basis to Program and Managers

    Cons

    The excellent vision that is at highest level does not filter to the new leadership of some of the divisions. The culture of acquired companies is still in play.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture is #1 .. bring the GDIT culture to locations acquired even if it means removing existing leadership
