    "Great Place to Work"

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

    Pros

    Very approachable leadership who gets work/life balance and the need to share information and engage in constant-continuous improvements. Encourages innovation and giving back to the community. One of the few firms (2) I've been at that promotes programs to help women network and advance.

    Cons

    It's a contracting firm so while you have a gig you are golden; if it gets cut they immediately cut you off before you ever have a change to apply for work internally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the open exchange of ideas flowing. Give a little runway for folks to stay in your organization; it doesn't cost you anything and may actually save you money in the long run (not having to pay for new clearances).

    Pros

    Received Fair Pay and Good Benefits. A good company to work for and always seemed to care about the employees.
