    Pros

    Great higher education benefits
    Many opportunities available internally

    Cons

    Feels like your just a number to corporate.
    The experience working on contracts is different in all phases.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology

    Pros

    No micro-management. Easy review process.

    Cons

    No communication. No holiday party. Horrid internal website. They send out emails talking about exceeding financial goals while cutting benefits and handing out less than COL raises. Low-balled on pay.

    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.

    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.
