I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good people. Supportive environment where multiple people collectively support a common goal. Very growth focused as an organization. As a whole senior leadership is interested in helping individual programs succeed. Willing to make investments in the business when a need is identified.

Cons

Organization has grown largely due to acquisition of Veridian, Anteon, VIPS, Vangent and others. Organizations is still forming to some extent due to different cultures of each organization. As in all "larger" organization there is a certain amount of bloat and bureaucracy. Tough economic times to meet company growth goals.

Advice to Management

Eliminate duplicative systems. Streamline management systems/activities so the PM can focus on providing services to their customers.

    Pros

    It is a decent job right out of college. They give you a clearance to work on the base and a pen,

    Cons

    They don't want to pay you what you deserves for a yearly salary. It is a place just to get experience and leave. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    PAY and stop undercutting your employees. I know it won't matter but you will lose more than you will gain.

    Pros

    GDIT wins interesting contracts, on interesting projects and programs.

    Cons

    GDIT does not appear to care for its people or its client's mission, having chosen to significantly low-ball bid a contract renewal, knowing it would mean the reduction of the site team by about 35% - and then gave the people (and client leadership) on site 2 days' notice that they would not be returning for the renewed contract.

    Advice to Management

    Loyalty runs both ways, and is earned not entitled. It is not encouraging to have "corporate leadership" arrive, tell several of the team that they have 2 days before they'll be laid off, and that said leadership will be supportive of those folks finding other GDIT projects - only to have those leaders fly away that same night, never to be seen again. This sort of thing is visible to the client, and DoD clients have a strong 'loyalty" sense... Net-net, such behavior of a contractor is extremely counter-culture, and is seen as insulting to the mission itself.
