Pros

They are a DoD Company dedicated on providing the best possible support to the US Navy. They offer a great deal.

Cons

Although they are great to work for, as a contractor one is limited to the customer being supported and personal goals may not line up.

Advice to Management

I would have to say not to forget that even though contractors, everyone that works for GDIT is sitll a person and not just a money sign on some goverment contract.

    Pros

    Good client site locations.
    Good work/life balance
    Good health plans
    Clietn side work can be very interesting but not because there is direction from corporate HQ.

    Cons

    Substandard benefits, always seem as though they are trying to pay the consultants as little as they can. Overall lack of communication regarding bids and future of specific contracts. Do not involve the employees in building the business, as if to say, hold on tight and hope for the best. Client site managers are good but corporate HQ seems out of touch with what goes on at the client site, to the extent that internal policies at HQ are pushed down to client side (non overhead) employees for whom the polices do not apply to. HR seems to make client side employees' lives more difficult not easier.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being hands off and taking the paychecks earned by client side consultants and calling it good. Try and understand what happens at the client site and respect those people who are earning the money under these contracts. Work harder to help consultants who want to move to different work sites or help them when contracts are in danger.

    Current Employee - Senior Analyst, Functional in San Antonio, TX
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits, minimal corporate red tape to deal with due to work integration with military service client. Appraisals are based on self-analysyis of goals, compared with supervisor perspective. Client is relatively undemanding, but usually very pleased with level of contractor support.

    Cons

    Site program managers are uninvolved with staff; allow known sub-performers to consistently get by with minimum workload, tolerates unprofessional behavior such as Internet surfing/televison viewing during work hours, lengthy BS sessions, and flex hours that allow employees clock in at work even though primary data systems are not available until an hour or two later. More emphasis on completing time cards than ensuring actual work is being done by contractor staff. Tends to hire personnel solely to fill client vacancies in contract. Recognition program relies on weak client recognition program to identify "contractor of the quarter"

    Advice to Management

    Hold employees responsible for performance and professional standards, fire sub-performers even if it loses money for the contract. Maintain service integrity--better to have holes in contract that have slackers consuming pay that should go to top performers. Get program manager and team leaders out of the cubicles and do some MBWA, have regular "how goes it" meetings with staff; institute a separate internal recognition program within each program task elelement or overall program/contract rather than relying on client programs
