    Pros

    All in all the Leadership has a great vision for GDIT. Newer systems and hiring some great individuals. Good pay and decent benefits. Some teams also allow for remote work which is nice and you stay busy.

    Cons

    Some teams/individuals are a pain to work with. Questions and help goes unanswered and cross-team collaboration is poor. Typically takes multiple messages before getting a response days later. This along with some lengthy engineering processes make getting things done more challenging than it needs to be. Lack of bonuses in certain roles are also a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Beef up benefits and encourage middle managers to promote a more responsive and information-flowing environment among their employees.

    Pros

    They pay you while you work for them.
