    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a customer service representative, it is a much more attractive option than the alternatives for people without a college degree; a decent pay with benefits, and all you have to do is sit at a desk and talk to new people every day.

    Cons

    Moving up can be frustrating; it can feel unrewarding when your efforts aren't acknowledged; there is little room for those who like to "think outside the box".

    Advice to Management

    Think more in the long term, and invest in projects that will produce a better workforce, rather than what will make your end-of-the-month numbers look good compared to your peers.

    Pros

    Great working team. Lots and lots of training and support, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Hard to advance without being in the 'in' crowd. QA is a disaster, very uneven grading so you never really know what is the right thing to do in any given situation.

    Advice to Management

    Train the QA team as highly as you do the call center CSRs, you'll see great improvement in production and morale.

    Pros

    They have plenty work for Newport News shipyard.

    Cons

    Those who have history with that shipyard in a good way or people who have decent backgrounds will benefit. Background checks are tedious.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time

    Pros

    This position is very flexible and great for people who like to work from home or design their own schedule. As long as you reach your monthly statistics, there is a great amount of work/life balance with this position.

    Cons

    No upward mobility, there is no set way for anyone to be promoted within the company as a background investigator.
    This company has inconsistent training which leads to conflicts between different areas of background investigations.
