great benefits, flexible shift, pay match average salary pay. Most staff was great to work with.

Great place to start, don't expect raises.Dec 30, 2021 - Systems Engineer in Norfolk, VARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
GDIT is a great place to start your IT career. Many opportunities, across the country and globally.
They have such a low profit margin on their IT contracts that they never have enough money for raises. They call them merit increases. An people are not reviewed on their performance. They do straight percent of 33% top performers, 33% average and 33% needing help. Even if you work on a team were you and all your peers are outstanding, 1/3 of them will be ranked average, and another 1/3 ranked as needing improvement.Continue reading

GDIT Review - Dec 2021Dec 15, 2021 - Network EngineerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I am a federal contractor and GDIT has a hands-off approach. The day-to-day duties and responsibilities are instructed by the client and/or primary contractor.
The pay is low compared to other federal contractors and private sector IT professionals. I was unsuccessful in negotiating higher compensation after onboarding and they give very minimal raises, if any. After 2 and a half years working here, they 'eliminated' my position but gave me an ultimatum. I could join another team (that requires a great deal of international travel) or be unemployed. I chose to stay employed, of course. Then they told me it was 'lateral move' and did not include a raise. Subsequently, I was given a very meager raise after joining that team. The entire ordeal was handled very unprofessionally and there was a lack of communication.

Depends What Program You Work OnJul 10, 2021 - Senior Database AdministratorRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The health insurance is good, 401k match is average. Working from home is easy and effective. The company will provide training for certain certifications. Your experience at this company will depend on the program you are working on. If you are on a well-run program it has the potential to be great. If your program is not managed by competent people, you will probably hate it.
Coming to this company was a huge culture shock for me. My program employs some of the laziest people I have ever encountered in my career. You have to hound the support staff just to add a drive or adjust permissions. Our main developer is a contractor and puts forth the least amount of effort possible. Once he puts in his hours for the week he is done whether the app works or not. He frequently makes promises he can't keep and constantly misses deadlines. Our managers are clueless about day to day operations and are also lazy - it starts at the top. Staff are largely indifferent to what is going on unless they are affected. The funny thing is this is supposed to be one of the better programs and the government has a good opinion of us - if only they knew what a disaster it is behind the scenes. There are a few people doing the majority of the work, the rest do whatever they want. Negotiate a high starting salary as pay raises are small. It seems to be difficult to get another job within the company, like they would rather hire an outsider instead of having to replace someone who is already working on a contract. The service desk is terrible. If you have a problem with your computer, good luck getting help. If a deadline is approaching, the fastest solution is to re-image it. Profit margins are tight so there will be no money for upgrades and you will have to make due with whatever resources are available. If there is a problem with the app, everyone will try to shift blame to someone else.Continue reading

GDITJun 12, 2014 - Supervisor in Lawrence, KSRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
It's the largest employer in town. The pros pretty much end there.
Salaries are low and yearly raises are miniscule. Staff continues to be cut while expected to maintain the same amount of work or more. Benefits are not great. Staff morale is the lowest it has ever been. There is very little room for advancement. I see many qualified and competent individuals stay stuck in low level positions. There is little support for training and development as all time is focused on keeping up with the workload.Continue reading

Clueless Micromanagers everywhere...Apr 17, 2019 - Administrator in StuttgartRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good location to work at, easy to take unpaid time off. Paid housing and tax free salary.
Program Manager on down micromanages to the point where they decide what type and fragrance of of toilet paper to order for the men's room. Very intrusive and demoralizing to morale. Company tries to scare off or fire people the last two years of the contract so they can be more competitive for the next contract- all that happens is the hard workers and knowledgeable staff leave and you have to do 3-4 jobs to make up the loss of those employees Absolutely ZERO employer loyalty to employees. Managers are all yes men who beat you up to get their misguided agendas/projects done and threaten to fire you if you don't comply. Good old boy network, management hires their buddies who most have no management skill or technical understanding. No one ever moves up, and the few that do get carrot dangling in front of them for salary increase until they get fed up and quit. New people not up to par with what is required to perform tasks. Problem employees allowed to create havoc and never get written up or counseled/removed. Pay raises ludicrous as seasoned staff gets less than one percent and clueless newcomers get 5%. Make you stay for three years by holding your relocation/repatriation back to US hostage. All other companies require only one year -this one requires 3. 401k a joke, they take it all back if you quit one day before being vested for the measly 3% they give you. Two years ago, payroll forgot to take out 401k deductions for a pay period and told people they had to do it themselves. Law does not allow you to do this so you lost one months deposit to your plan. HR non existent and doesn't work for you as a worker but for management. HR seems like they can never find people to come work for them in Overseas. Hundreds of open jobs and seldom any new hires. Extremely oppressive environment where most shops do nothing but look busy watching TV and push their work down lower shops shop whose managers have no clue how to fight back and not take it. Example is HD personnel doing network and IA shops job. Management totally condones this. Work entails putting out fires rather than being proactive and avoiding fires. Changes to procedures entails mandatory management meetings that includes all managers in contract who cannot appreciate or are even stakeholders, let alone understand what the change entails.Continue reading

A lot of ongoing changes.Nov 16, 2014 - 1-800-Medicare Customer Service Representative in Phoenix, AZRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Pay is good but I hear there hasn't been a raise in about 2 years since General Dynamics took over.
Things are always changing and most of us feel that we are not appreciated like we should be. Not many perks. Took away our Chirstmas Party the year after I began in 2010.Continue reading
