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

Pros

The company pays well and they look to higher and promote from within. Many jobs at GDIT are based on military contracts so your milegage may vary depending on the specific contract details. As far as being a contractor goes, I have work for a few companies and GDIT is without a doubt the best.

Cons

They promise educational benefits then you (likely) will be told there is not enough money in the budget to provide any assistance with college tuition, certification, or educational materials. Insurance benefits are costly. The lowest deductible for insurance is $3000 which means that you have to pay $3000 out of pocket before ANYTHING is covered. As long as you don't mind paying full price for most of the year it's not too bad. Company should offer more training opportunites.

Advice to Management

Either offer true educational benefits or stop saying that employees are eligible for them

    Big, bloated, like most larger corporations. Lots of managers to go through.

    It is huge and has many different places to go to and work.

    You get lost in the shuffle and do not get support, and just another number to the company.

    Stop trying to sound like you care and really start caring for your employees, will go a long way to actually making money for a purpose.
