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

    Pros

    Management works hard to avoid layoffs. Lots of opportunities to work independently. Employees encouraged to work from home. Individual private offices for everyone.

    Cons

    Traditional work of providing staff augmentation for IT services is drying up. Unable to pivot to providing more high tech engineering services. Focused on lowering salaries to bottom 20% of market to win new bids. Half empty buildings all over the country. Management trying to fix things by just yelling louder.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on quarterly stock price if you want to maintain long term growth.

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

    Pros

    -Incredibly relaxed management
    -Good entry-level experience into the insurance world

    Cons

    -INCREDIBLY relaxed management - There is next to no incentive to actually do your job. I had a co-worker that used to put her phone in "available" then go to Sonic for two hours.

    Advice to Management

    If you paid a little more to hire competent people, you'd save money in the long run.

    Pros

    The company has several divisions. There are so many diferent career opportunities.

    Cons

    Very difficult to advance. There is a lot of favoritism in the work place. People that are not qualified to do the job are promoted or hired over people already working there. Senior Leadership does not listen to the staff. Pay is horrible for this area.

    Advice to Management

    Show up unannounced and inspect the workplace. Listen to your team. Stop playing favorites. Evaluate the salary.
