Pros: pay, benefits
Cons: long hours, not much of a personal life, always working
I worked for GDIT for a year as a contractor overseas. I highly recommend working for them. If you know your job, can work without someone over your back, have excellent time management and like a nice pay check then you are golden. Don't bs your way through the hiring process because if you don't know your IT knowledge, you will be found out very quickly, especially if you are supporting an overseas mission. I had to deal with this and I was very unimpressed. You will be given a chance to learn very very quickly what you said you initially knew or we will find a way to remove you from the site and make you someone elses nuisance. They offer great benefits and great pay. I would've stayed with this company but I had spent so much time overseas between deployments with the military and this contractor position that I was ready to come back stateside and be with my loved ones. I, unfortunately, worked ALOT! Minimum of 12 hr shifts that didn't include the 2 hr drive, 6 days a week plus being on call. Not much time for myself to just relax. When I did get a day off I spent it sleeping in, talking to loved ones and just relaxing. 90% of the people I worked with were very knowledgeable awesome IT individuals, some on the other hand had just fluffed their resume and didn't really deserve to be there making the $$$$ they were. Either way, GDIT is AWESOME!!!!!!!!
