    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Ethical practices. Dedication to the customer's mission. You feel like your work makes a difference in the world.

    Cons

    Constant worry about job security, inherent to government contracting. Some cronyism. Often too busy dau to day to think of real longterm career hoals.

    Advice to Management

    When subcontracting, ensure the company that really brings the most value is the one you bring on. Encourage more cross team, cross division pursuits. Find and value you your hardest working employees, who may not have time to play "the game." Value lessons learned of long term employees, and retain them.

    Pros

    Becomes easy after you know what you're doing.

    Cons

    They hire anyone as long as you type 30 WPM and speak english, constant changes with system and content. Quality became strict on reviewed calls. Terrible recognition system. No raises or bonuses. Eventually force you to take on more responsibility by becoming claims trained and don't pay more which means more calls and responsibility for the same pay.

    Pros

    Easy work, some growth opportunity from entry level to supervisor or quality.

    Cons

    Site leadership is inconsistent and each team works individually, not together.

    Advice to Management

    At the site level, learn to work together so all supervisors and CSRs are getting the same, unified experience.

    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We had an excellent year. Exceeded all our goals. Nice job titles. Not too many women or diversity in leaders so consistency in leadership style. No training. Good work locations. Free coffee.

    Cons

    Annual raise was below market. Bonuses are bad. Told there is no career progression. Management is disconnected from folks at levels under VP. Benefits are horrible. They are reducing leave next year and switching to a use or loose leave situation so you cannot accrue annual leave. No windows in offices. Too many people on overhead who do nothing but are friends of the management. No one who has been there less than 10 years really knows one another.

    Advice to Management

    Work more than 40 hours. Walk the halls and talk to people other than VPs. Pay bonuses and spot awards to folks you value. A little recognition goes a long way. Hire younger workers and have regular team building events at least 4 times a year.
