Worked for GDIT for about 1.5 years and truly enjoyed the experience.

Human Resources Generalist (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than a year

ProsSalary, Benefits, Management Support, Employee Development.

ConsNon IT employees, such as myself, have challenges with mobility within the company. In my case, the contract I was supporting was lost and follow-on employment within the company didn't materialize before I found employment elsewhere.

Not very focused on their employees

Principal Analyst, Systems (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than 10 years

ProsLarge company with jobs all over the world.

ConsPay increases do not keep track with inflation for anyone other than the top 1 to 2% performers.
Company is not very focused on the employees. Communication from the top down is rare and you usually find out about things when you have to make a change or just after you were supposed to. While available, training is not pushed or even encouraged.

Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your employees rather than focussing on the bottom line, you will get better results and hang onto talented people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It's best days are behind it

Program Manager (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than 5 years

Prosthe people were the best part. they are dedicated, smart, and innovative (or could be, if the company let them). they have tons of experience, and are willing to share their lessons learned with others.

Consthe big company bureaucracy is by far the worst. Cash flow is everything. there is no risk taking at all. if you are looking for a cutting-edge company, this is not it.
