    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people - both managers and individual contributors - are awesome. Sensible, smart and down-to earth.

    Cons

    Contracts come and go, so job security could be better. Before GDIT acquired ViPS, the company took care of it's employees as if they were family. A lot of that culture disappeared when ViPS became part of GDIT.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at providing professional development for your employees.

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities, upward movement as well as inter-dept transfers. A lot of people have been returning to work here lately.

    Cons

    Sometimes, you just want to be trained instead of "finding yourself" and learning as you go. Also, an organizational chart would help as there are so many departments working together

    Advice to Management

    Stop creating single points of failure!
