    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary wasn't too bad, but substantial bonuses were reserved for those at the top.

    Cons

    Only the leadership team is allowed to have ideas. Leadership doesn't take responsibility for decisions. If things go south, they look for a scapegoat to blame. There is no integrity at the top so it's difficult to keep morale up. They don't value anyone except themselves.

    Advice to Management

    You have a set of core values that you where around your neck, they should be more than just something you quote, they should be the moral compass of the organization.

    Pros

    The work is interesting due to the client base, all Federal Gov. or DoD.
    Mostly run as a respectful large company, very cautious about ethics, but also flexible on an individual basis

    Cons

    They work from contract to contract. Once your project is over, you have to find something else or change jobs. There is very little matrixing of one employee to several different jobs.
    I was hired at a lower grade than my qualifications due to an existing opening. Now after proving my worth many times, I am having difficulty getting the promotion and raise I think is justified by my performance and peer review.

    Advice to Management

    Be more judicious in handling hiring, raises, transfers, and promotions.
    Consider sharing people across different activities for more continuity and reduced struggle in recruiting.

    Pros

    Great group of people and a great company. I worked at the corporate office where everyone from the President/CEO down to the admins had a passion for their work and the company as a whole. Everyone had a great attitude that fostered a friendly and pleasant atmosphere. One of the best places I've ever worked.

    Cons

    Communication between departments was sometimes slow, which made things more difficult than necessary for the support staff, but that happens in most large organizations.

    Advice to Management

    The company was purchased by GDIT a while back, so the only advice to management would be to hang on to the remaining Vangent employees because they were what made that company great.
