    Pros

    Large company - good benefits

    Cons

    GDIT is not winning very many bids anymore. Growth is mostly be acquisition, buying small dynamic companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees to transfer within the company, It is easier to find a new job with a new employer than to transfer.

    I worked at ViPS as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation is better than average.

    Cons

    Beware of working for GD as a contractor. There is no guarantee the contract will last as long as they tell you it will.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It all boils down to how well and how quick your workers line your pockets with no loyalty for the workers who go above and beyond to do an exceptional job.

    Former Employee - Principal Field Technician in San Antonio, TX

    I worked at ViPS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company to work for; great people to work with; I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 years at General Dynamics; they even trained and sent me to school. I worked in 3 different areas and enjoyed all personnel all of the time. I still have friendships with some of the people I worked with even though I know live in a different city and state.

    Cons

    I really cannot remember any negatives except when the stock started falling and losing in the 401k area. I hope they make it easier to turn people around because one lady in Virginia Beach was moved twice and still could not get along with people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize TQM. It is a great system and works well for everyone. I see it all the time that it can be very helpful to a a lot of companies especially companies that are stuck in the way they do things for example: my son works for an auto dealership and they are stuck in doing things one way and one way only and they fail miserable on a daily basis.

    I have been working at ViPS as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Set hours. Decent pay. Friendly co-workers and mgmt.

    Cons

    Constantly reassured that contract would be flipped to full time employee as soon as ink dried on merger, along with several other contractors. Ink dried and faded, and we were never flipped. Then GDIT/Vips lost the contract rebid, and the contractors were obviously not a priority.

    I have been working at ViPS full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Fantastic community of people to work with, insurance options are okay, casual dress, flex time and some positions allow telecommuting.

    Cons

    Salary increases are a joke, promotional opportunities lacking, being good at your job does not guarantee you will be able to move up in the organization, no SICK time, crappy vacation time, management does not recognize educational achievement, some managers not qualified and have horrible people skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better health insurance options, bring back sick time, recognize those who complete training by promoting and paying better, listen to employees, mentor those with leadership potentional.
