    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!
