    Pros

    The environment is laid-back, but productive. Management in our department truly listens and wants us to be viewed as teachers instead of the bad guys. Policies have to be followed in order to maintain the contract.

    Cons

    Consistency and subjectivity. The benefits stink for the price and need serious negotiation. Let us opt out, grandfathered employees have no safety net.

    Advice to Management

    Create a manner of so for appeals and audits, so that it eliminates discrepancies. It helps all of us know difinitively how to do our job. Follow the company's ethos. Legal, medical, and financial risk could occur from the callers if this is not followed.

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

    Pros

    My manager was great...the on-boarding experience, training, and able to answer all of my questions. I would love to work with her again, just not as a contractor.

    Cons

    My contract was not renewed after the first year and there were no other jobs available. I had to go to the new contracting company which was horrible and came with a decrease in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Get better benefits and try to keep your contracts as long as possible. I'm very sad to leave my position.

    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

    One of the better entry level available in the area, a lot of contracts and career opportunities. 25 hour facility allows flexible hours. Large company with a lot of room to grow

    Must follow evaluation matrices that sometimes seem impossible as a CSR. Cut throat at times. Contracts can change at will must be ready.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, with bonuses. Works to place talent in contract slots and retain them. Will go to bat with Government Leads when they are doing something wrong. Work to place workers in other positions/sites when contracts end.

    Cons

    As with others in the Sierra Vista area, almost all jobs are keyed to contracts. When the contract is lost or delays in follow-on contracts occur, the workers face furlough or termination. This is a normal practice in this area however - not specific to GDIT itself.
