    I have been working at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits package especially OCONUS. When contracts are lost GDIT gives those employees priority for applicable positions.

    Cons

    Government work producing government deliverables. The fundamental delivery of service is lost to providing security results. Jean day, pizza/ice cream party ~ move along nothing to see here.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some very conscientious staff who made up for the “get your nose to the grindstone and earn your keep” attitude and ineptitude of some of the senior management

    Cons

    Atrocious management team where bullying seemed to be the norm and a hire and fire at will attitude prevailed. They managed to run a potentially great company into the ground to the point of near closure and displayed no appreciation for hard work or dedication of many of the more junior employees

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology

    Pros

    Some smart people working there- but all left due to poor management.

    Cons

    This company is a circus. It is part of a large organisation in the US but tiny in the UK. There are no strategic plans, constant fire fighting and no care for staff members. HR is appalling, do not know the law, do not know how treat their staff and more importantly have no empathy.
