    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!

    Pros

    CAREER GROWTH. GD also does a great job relocating employees if jobs are cut. Great atmosphere and paid training. Great pay. Military atmoshpere and work directly with military and government employees. Gives me a sense of doing my part for my country without having to kick down doors in Iraq. great opportunity to work with the latest and greatest communications equipment and the customer has the pockets to purchase it.

    Cons

    GDIT deployees at a minimum 3 months per year to hazardous zones. Its physically and mentally draining. But the deployement pay helps ease the pain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work listening to our concerns. Continue to provide paid training in industry certification classes. Continue to recognize employees performance and contributions.

    Pros

    I work in the Healthcare IT division. The staff is experienced and employee turnover is low. Benefits are good, Management is good and seems to be supported by senior management. The company is stable and layoffs in my division are rare.

    Cons

    Salaries are fair compared to similar jobs elsewhere, but not great. I wish they had a better bonus program to reward and retain high performing employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. You will retain more high performing employees with a better bonus program and with a salary program that favors the best employees

    Pros

    Good basic hourly wage, good training.

    Cons

    They never hire permanent staff--you will be a "permanent" temp at best which means that when upper level management chooses to route hiring to other call ceneters in distant cities you will be S.O.L..
