    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about working at GDIT overall for me was my co-workers.

    Cons

    For employees being laid off and would like to stay with the company, the process that they are enrolled in needs to be improved. I was faced with losing my job twice and the second time around, I feel that I could have remained an employee had the process been handled a little bit differently than what it was.

    The only way I would return is in a senior or management role.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the employees in the CAP program and have their CAP representative do a little more than say "reach out to me if you need more assistance with applying to internal positions." Had there been a more open communication and effort to keep around good talent, I may still be employed at GDIT.

    Pros

    Paid vacation (after a year), and sick time. The local management does what they can to make a fun environment.

    Cons

    GDIT does not care if they keep you are not. They constantly change the policies, and rules. They give the minimum amount of notice, and benefits at required by law. They have have shut down at least 4 programs at 3 different site over the country in less than 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    care about your employees more

    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.

    Pros

    It's really easy to get hired there. The matching 401k is good and they make it pretty clear what is expected of you.

    Cons

    I worked in the Health Insurance Marketplace. When open enrollment is over they make it an unpleasant place to work so people will leave.

    Advice to Management

    Give people something to read during slow times.

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay in the off season for the beach community. Free insurance if you are okay with an HMO.

    Cons

    I can say I worked in the Lynn haven call center. The shear amount of calls is overwhelming. The mandatory days were hectic. No sense that you could solve anything just a see of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    I do not know if there is a way to allow more freedom and personality in your customer advocates but you should strive to have this.
