    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A lot of excellent managers and directors with knowledge of the customer and take care of employees

    Cons

    Many contracts have gone small business, so we end up having to be subs with a small; not all management teams have the same ethics as others

    Advice to Management

    Help create an ethical, professional, and fun working environment (within the company and with our customers) and live by the core values.

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are OK. Management is hands off.

    Cons

    The management does NOT care of employees and employee development at all. When they lost a contract, the immediate thing is to issue a layoff notice. I managed 6 people and they were all laid off on the day the contract ended. The company does not actively look for new assignments for affected employees; people worked there for 15 yrs did not get any severance pays and bench time at all. Employees are just trashed. This is unbelievable!

    Good salary and benefits....nice facilities.

    Management doesn't care about its people. Major layoffs involving respected leaders and personnel with years of experience.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Still a large company with many resources and quality professionals to make the mission succeed for our customers. I have written a review previously, but things have changed so much in the last year.

    Cons

    Since the acquisition of CSRA our company culture has changed rapidly and not for the better. The cultures of the two large companies were not a match.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out your identity. Let the old guard GDIT employees know directly that you want to be CSRA, so they can leave. Or decide to retain your history and legacy of being known as a company that was ethical and treated their employees better. Right now, the company is floating with no identity while it realizes the poor deal it made in acquiring a company that was not nearly as financially sound as what it appeared.

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to get in depth experience in all aspects of Sales, Contracting, Proposal Management, business development, recruiting, hiring and managing personnel.

    Cons

    Upper management is bonused on your business development and capture efforts. You had very little leeway to be innovation in solution development. Company is very risk averse. Senior management encourages Program Managers to let seasoned contract personnel go at the end of contract cycles to recruit new lower cost talent for project recompetition.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the impression you make on the workers on whose back you earn your bonuses.

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology for more than a year

    Pros

    Work was well structured; Management knew what customer needed GD provided most of what was necessary to meet the demands of the client.

    Cons

    Did an excellent job of delivering to the customer what they needed and they were very satisfied, but the customer was not ready for the next step, so GD decided to lay off the whole team. We finished for the client on time under budget and received awards, but GD seems to be only interested in the $$, not the people.

    Advice to Management

    Look to the skilled resources to help grow your company you might be surprised what some loyalty to the resources might get you.
