    Pros

    CAREER GROWTH. GD also does a great job relocating employees if jobs are cut. Great atmosphere and paid training. Great pay. Military atmoshpere and work directly with military and government employees. Gives me a sense of doing my part for my country without having to kick down doors in Iraq. great opportunity to work with the latest and greatest communications equipment and the customer has the pockets to purchase it.

    Cons

    GDIT deployees at a minimum 3 months per year to hazardous zones. Its physically and mentally draining. But the deployement pay helps ease the pain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work listening to our concerns. Continue to provide paid training in industry certification classes. Continue to recognize employees performance and contributions.

    Pros

    I work in the Healthcare IT division. The staff is experienced and employee turnover is low. Benefits are good, Management is good and seems to be supported by senior management. The company is stable and layoffs in my division are rare.

    Cons

    Salaries are fair compared to similar jobs elsewhere, but not great. I wish they had a better bonus program to reward and retain high performing employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. You will retain more high performing employees with a better bonus program and with a salary program that favors the best employees

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've never worked with a more hardworking and friendly group. They know what needs to be done and do it efficiently and effectively. Everyone is willing to help each other out and there a real sense of team. The experience you get will be determined by the contract you work and how well the team has been put together. Some teams work better together than others.

    Cons

    Working for a large company can have its drawbacks. To the very upper management I'm just a number on a page. This isn't always a bad thing but dealing with pushing through corporate red tape can be irritating.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great mobility within the company and General Dynamics as a whole. Very customer focused yet takes care of employees to the fullest extent possible.

    Cons

    HR is cumbersome. There lots of processes and procedures and there are rules for everything that takes place. Usually this results in a simple thing taking additional time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your good folks happy and provide better reward for good work.
