I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (Less than a year)
GDIT was a pretty good experience, unfortunately I came in on the end of the contract, so it was kind of shaky. But management and executives were good to work with. I was embedded in the customers program office, so I had very little interaction with actual GDIT people.
Pretty expensive healthcare. No tuition assistance.

Competitive salary and benefits like other contractors. I wish they had more incentives for workers with good track records with government clients.
Same as any government contractor. Re-competitions aren't nice to employees (Feel like you never know anything). Big company, so you feel like just a number with the HR dept.

They kept the pay checks coming.
You're just a minion for such a large company who can make a profit off your body/space.
Unless your college degree was specific to the Job, it didn't count towards "experience".
Advice to Management
too many levels of management and unsure of who to report to.

Company has been very good to me, ensuring that I have received good raises in compensation for helping to improve relations with an unhappy and demanding customer.
They have periodic incentives to encourage employees to be more healthy. Like last year, they had a program where people tracked their walking/running and, if you exercised x times per week, your name went into a drawing. Some of the prizes were things like iPads and A WEEK OF PAID LEAVE.
In the current environment, with threats of sequestration and DoD budget cutbacks, working for any defense contractor can be a bit nerve-wracking.
From what I can see, most GDIT employees are embedded at customers' work sites. So your day-to-day work experience is much more affected by your government customer than by the the actual policies of your employer. Not really a CON, per se, but it can be if your customer is difficult and the GDIT management doesn't stand behind you.
I worked for a small contractor before and did have more of a sense there of being known as a person and not just an employee number.
