    Pros

    GDIT was a great company to work for. I worked 24 years for them and progressed through the company very nicely. Started as a computer operator and worked almost every job up and through Program Manager.

    Cons

    GDIT was a great company until the government started going to small businesses for contracts. GDIT had no plan to react to this change and after a long term contract ended it didn't have a plan to protect its employees. I saw hundreds of people get laid off within the last 5 years. GDIT requires certifications and degrees for their employees but they have unqualified managers at their HQ. (One that can't even pass accounting 101 but is a Sr. Director in charge of many).

    Advice to Management

    Start being consistent with information/requirements coming out of the HQ. You need to have a new plan on how to win contracts.

    Pros

    Good call center. Staff and co-workers friendly. You give information only so calls are quick, simple and inbound only.

    Cons

    Calls come in back-to-back so you often do not have down time between calls. Unknown opportunities for advancement; ceiling looks pretty low. Incentives are only for those who rank the top agents.

    Pros

    Have a lot of opportunities in the Washington, DC area and at least some potential to relocate around the US and the world.

    Cons

    Focus is almost entirely on government contracting, which means salaries and work closely follow what the government is doing at that time.

    Pros

    Training is pretty good
    Work load is barable for the pay
    Really layed back when call volume is low.
    My manager and supervisor was very helpful when I had questions.
    The benefits are really good.
    Good position to get your feet wet in the IT field.
    Looks very good on a resume.

    Cons

    Was promised a raise that I never received after 6 months.
    30 minute lunches
    The pay is way too low for the amount of work done.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep this Helpdesk fully staffed as much as possible to keep the stress levels down of your employees. Give raises to those that earn it. Don't punish everyone because a few people because a few people are not meeting their performance metrics. Don't hire people to do IT work and then give them CSR pay.
