    Pros

    The people, simply A1. Location and environment were top notch

    Cons

    The closure of the UK business

    Advice to Management

    None, a valiant attempt to keep afloat a doomed vessel but hold your heads high as you did more than anyone could

    I worked at General Dynamics Information Technology full-time (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

    Advice to Management

    Get another job and move over to make room for a leadership team that know how to lead and can make their mind up about exactly what GDIT in the Uk do

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Know what your business goals are, what is the core product you are trying to sell, then hire the right people to deliver the strategy, not mickey mouse clubhouse. Also stop being selective on whom you want to do good for too many cliques.

    Pros

    Great people, great work environment. People oriented and always striving to keep employees happy.

    Cons

    Not many. Cons lay mainly with keeping the customer happy. What works for one may not work for all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Recognise the great people you have working for you and try your hardest never to take them for granted

    Pros

    It is a great company to work for. Company always wants you to move ahead in your career. Get full reimbursements for training and college.

    Cons

    Medical insurance really sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Look at other companies' insurance structure, like SC3. With this medical package, you will loose lots of good talent to other companies.
