    Pros

    Work with very bright talented colleagues.

    Cons

    Health insurance is horrible. The management is out of touch with the staff. The company does not value nor take care of its employees; everything is about the bottom line. Policies are all geared towards benefit of the company with little to no flexibility for individual circumstances.

    Advice to Management

    Shape up.

    Pros

    General Dynamics is an okay place to work. It is nothing special. Decent working conditions okay pay and the insurance is nothing special.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement . There are no raises. No cost-of-living increase. They are not competitive with other companies in the area. there are some fast food companies grocery stores and even Walmart is paying more than GD IT right now. There's a chance that the call center jobs in Coralville maybe shutting down in the next 2 to 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are not interested in your little snack carts or your spot awards. The spot awards are so cheap it's laughable.

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time

    Pros

    People were for the most part friendly
    Benefits were decent
    Work was easy

    Cons

    Had meetings just for the sake of meetings, which I know is typical especially in the business world but it was way worse here. Not a good culture in the office.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to hire somebody actually have a job for them to do.

    Pros

    GDIT is a stable place to work. I have worked on on contract for over eight years.

    Cons

    GDIT bends to every welm of the customer at the expense of the employee. You have to set expectations so you are not run over constantly. Depending on your position your chance of advancement my suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good people and keep them by treating them right.

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

    Pros

    The harder you work, the fast your move up. There are always positions opening

    Cons

    However, they will move you up and give you the responsibility of a higher paying title, but not follow it up with the pay. Plus there is the constant stress of losing a contract and there not being a job at all.

    Crappy insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve. If you are going to give them the responsibilities of a manager, then make sure their pay is equal to that when you "promote" them. You promote them because they are doing a good job, so the compensation should match.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and supervisors. Everyone works together and are always happy to help one another. You'll get extensive research experience as well as thorough experience on Medicare policies.

    Cons

    Stressful workloads. They expect you to complete a bucket of outbound calls while at the same time require that you take inbound calls, assist with those falling behind, complete backload calls that are only backloaded typically because we have no power to actually correct the issue. You become more of a counselor to callers having issues rather than a resolution specialist. In all the stress, quality management expectations are unreasonable and change often. Pay is does not suffice for workload and there are no raises. They apparently base your pay on the average of what random unknown companies in the same area location are paying employees at the same tier level. Feedback suggestions go unimplemented, so the same issues revolve over and over.

    Advice to Management

    Put more pressure on the "powers that be" to implement feedback suggestions. It shouldn't take 50 submissions of the same issue or suggestion before changes occur. Implement more awards, recognitions, activities etc to raise morale. Revise quality expectations to be more forgiving. One failed call should not drag down a scorecard for months to come.
