    Pros

    Should be work as long as company has a contract. Decent pay

    Cons

    No apparent leadership. No investment in skills unless they need your skills in a technical role. Everyone is one quarterly report away from layoff. "What have you done for me lately" should be the company motto

    Advice to Management

    Set a vision, communicate it and follow through. The show up once to cheerlead then disappear only motivates the newbies who haven't seen it before.

    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

    Becomes easy after you know what you're doing.

    Cons

    They hire anyone as long as you type 30 WPM and speak english, constant changes with system and content. Quality became strict on reviewed calls. Terrible recognition system. No raises or bonuses. Eventually force you to take on more responsibility by becoming claims trained and don't pay more which means more calls and responsibility for the same pay.

    Pros

    Easy work, some growth opportunity from entry level to supervisor or quality.

    Cons

    Site leadership is inconsistent and each team works individually, not together.

    Advice to Management

    At the site level, learn to work together so all supervisors and CSRs are getting the same, unified experience.

    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.

    Pay is alright.
    Overtime almost all the time.
    Coworkers are generally nice.
    Break room always stocked.
    Plenty of energy drinks is essential.

    HR treats you like trash.
    Have to fight for disability accommodations.
    Lack of supervisor support.
    Opinion doesn't matter.
    Crappy hour selection.
    Parking is a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to help out your employees especially those with special circumstances. If it's not broken don't fix it.
