    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    GDIT has a Great Team consisting of experienced and knowledgeable managers who care for their employees. I have found the company to be a solid partner in my career, with an abundance of opportunities for advancement over the years.

    Cons

    The typical cons of any large scale company. Big companies have to have oversight on programs that small companies do not. There are reasons that employees need to fill out paperwork for expenditures; hint: it's not because the company hates you :)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality people, try to reduce as much as possible the big-company burdens and bureaucracy, and invest in your employees!

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time

    Pros

    I worked at a government site and had very little interaction with GDIT management on a day-to-day basis. When I did, they were friendly, professional, and helpful.

    They paid well and encouraged training and development, and provided an unexpected bonus due to satisfaction of my government customer.

    Cons

    None, unless you need lots of "check ins" with management or can't work independently. Some folks need that type of environment, and GDIT might not be their first choice.

    Advice to Management

    Expand contracts so there is more room to transfer and grow, while staying within the company.

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

    Pros

    Working at GDIT can be rewarding, if you wait for the opportunity to work for a small contract to open up. My experience with the E-rate contract has been nothing but positive. Since the contract is so small (less than 30 people), there are always opportunities to demonstrate leadership and work has the feel of a small business with the perks of working for a big company.

    Cons

    Like any large company there is a level of big business bureaucracy that makes it feel much more corporate. I personally have had difficulty setting up meetings with HR and when the meetings did finally occur, the information provided has typically been less than helpful.

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

    Pros

    The medical benefits, sick time, vacation, earned time off, pay rate, bonuses

    Cons

    Supervisors, managers, they say that they like to promote within the company that is false, the type of people they hire, organization, unprofessional & childish people. It's like a big high school. Schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Not easy. Even with the right qualifications they only hire if you are one of the friends.
