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

    Pros

    I have worked for GDIT for less than a year as a supervisor and and a customer service representative. The benefits offered by GDIT are some of the best benefits I have had ever.

    Cons

    Training is lacking and communication from upper management needs to be improved. Hiring practices need to be improved as well if you can read a script and have some computer knowledge you will be hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tighten up the hiring requirements you will hire just about anyone and some of the people you hired should of been let go .

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

    Pros

    Worked for GDIT for more than 10 years and overall it has been a good experience. Pay seems to be about average but that depends on your skills and negotiating, and there are always opportunities available if you want to relocate or work overseas.

    Cons

    Not much negative to speak of, but education benefits are slowly being eroded; I've already completed my degrees so this is a non-issue for me.

    Pros

    The only reason is the paycheck.

    Cons

    Ngd software is lousy,internet crashes frequently, callers can't seem to access their accounts or applications,and general dynamics asks for perfection amid all the computor chaos and the position is a 4 month temporary job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off of the corporate perfectionism,fix the lousy ngd software.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    NONE other than I got a paycheck. Nothing else. Period.

    Cons

    Rules only apply to certain people. Racist HR dept in Chesterfield. WORST HR dept and management team ever. Always looking for ways to stick it to you. Too bad I had to give a "star" for ratings. This company doesn't deserve ANY stars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some training on how to be leaders, not the Hitler kind. Depts should also learn to work together instead of against each other.

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

    Pros

    Very little positive to say about this company.

    Cons

    Management was awful, promotions were dangled for years but never given, turn over was high, leave is low and management would not work with employees regarding leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees! Increase your base leave amount. Don't put such an emphasis on middle/upper management.

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The comapny made it very easy to get on with them and provided all the information needed to perform the tasks

    Cons

    They will fire you for any small thing. I worked for this company in the past year and resigned because I had a ill new born child that I had to tend to management talked to me and told me that it was best to resign and I did so. Finally decided to go back and got hired easily becamqe ill myself for 2 days in training provided documentation from a Doctor and they terminated me, gave me the run around about my employment with the company for 2 months. If you want to work with this company make sure you have no out side life and don't get sick because they do not care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn that people want to provide their best with the company but things happen try to be empathetic of your employees.The job is nott easy from a long shot so please be considerate of the one's that work under you.
