    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology

    Pros

    Pros? I can't think of a single one. I guess the health insurance was alright and decently priced and 401k was ok.

    Cons

    It's not a fun place to work. It is all about the numbers and not about actually helping the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it fun to work there instead of counting numbers so much each day. Make the employees feel important instead of just a body filling a chair.

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology

    Pros

    Great pay. Looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    Does not care about it's employees, shows no morale support, very cheap to spend money on awards or other employee incentives. Upper management only cares about their career and salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing says high turnovers like senior management who does not even take the time to see how their employees are doing. Employees that go above and beyond do not get recognized and their award system (Gift cards) takes an act of congress to get approved. Employee concerns to management goes into the internet abyss and working hard equals harder work as a reward. Just take time to visit your sites and ask your front line leaders how are things going?

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large company so, easy to travel to different locations, and when one site closes, another job is usually available elsewhere.

    Cons

    At the end of 2013 they killed/(Froze) the pension of everyone who had already been working 12 years or more and had been expecting a retirement. This year, our regional manager just canceled all merit increases for everyone!
    GD stock is up roughly 35% over the last year. But they cant afford a merit increase to even keep up with the rate of inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reinstate the pensions to those of us who were promised one. Don't be sad when the technical positions unionize.

    Current Employee - Call Center Supervisor in Winchester, KY

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

    Pros

    Decent health benefits, fair pay, great coworkers, defined policies, train their supervisors

    Cons

    I left because I was told the supervisor shift bids would be mainly performance based. They were 100% senority based.

    Future promotion opportunities were also solely based on work experience which excluded people who had potential, were working hard, and performing well. This made it nearly impossible to develop employees for promotions.

    Daily frustrations included no central HR department just a local who didn't know what they were doing making it difficult to get things that required HR done. Polices while clearly written were spread out through three different websites making it difficult to locate the one you need.

    Great People, Lots of Potential, Needs Mind-Shift

    Current Employee - Manager in Baltimore, MD
    Current Employee - Manager in Baltimore, MD

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology

    Pros

    Good reputation and a strong desire/ commitment by management and staff to provide extraordinary value to its federal government customers. A lot of very smart VPs, senior directors, directors, and subject matter experts especially in health analytics, big data, and legacy government HealthIIT programs. Most teams have high internal cohesion and commitment to their projects and customers.

    Cons

    The integration of multiple small and mid size companies to form the Health Solutions division has been mismanaged. Mergers are seldom easy and there is always some degree of dissatisfaction. But benefits reductions, low salary increases, and poor orientation on GDIT annual review processes hit employee moral harder than it should have. Transitioning accounting and invoicing systems (a crucial task) has drained a lot of management time and has made budgeting and planning a nightmare. The Military Health Division is doing poorly and has been re-organized, And BD planning for retaining large, critical Health related re-compete programs captured by the acquisitions when they were small business has been poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to shift requirements of line managers (from VP down to Program Managers) from internal administrative reporting and meetings to more focus on near and longer-term customer innovations and opportunities.
