Senior System Support Engineer (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – December 1, 2015
General Dynamics offers advancement, certifications, diverse skills training, and a remarkable team of people. The managers foster teams that look-out for each other, help each member reach a personal and a professional goal while providing a work life balance. The hardest part of working for General Dynamics for me was the 48% travel and being away from home. The best part of working for General Dynamics was the people, training, and exposure to both commercial and government environments. I highly recommend anyone looking for a great company culture to apply for work at GD.
Good benefits, Good reimbursements, Good People, Good Enviroment
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – London, KY – March 7, 2016
I enjoy helping my consumers with their Market Place issues, the company have a lot to be desired in the management, they change the policies and standard operating procedures to their liking and without revision. Their quality on calls is very nit picking. Making it hard to stay within standards. Work is very busy calls are back to back.
They have good benifits
They don't take Dr slips for days missed, they don't excuss them
Training Instructor IV (Former Employee) – Fort Belvoir, VA – February 19, 2016
It was a long time ago but good place for someone straight out of college and looking to get their foot in the door. The company was good to the workers and provided decent training every year. You did kind of feel like a number there though and have to say the raises there were next to nothing.
Great place to start
Very little advancement opportunities and small wage increases.
Help Desk Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Las Cruces, NM – March 19, 2016
Only worked there for 2 months, (was hired as a temporary full time employee) on a call center help desk. Very structured company, very organized, even as a temp employee, because it was full time I was able to receive full benefits (at no extra charge).
Information Security Analyst (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 5, 2016
GDIT is a great organization to work for. Given the size of the organization you cant really say how great the management team is because your team will more than likely be different. Executive management does a outstanding job laying out business goals and directives. I work with people from a multitude of contracts and business environments so it provides a great connecting experience. The only con would be that salary typically slightly below market.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – February 25, 2016
They put a posting stating the salary is $14.64 however once you get hired on, one of the managers said they deliberately did that just to bring people in. The real pay was $10.83 and the remaining $3.81 went towards paying for your health insurance benefits which they make it seem in the post that your pay would be $14.64 plus benefits. NOT True. They are completely unorganized. The call center manager micro manages to the extreme. If you ever need help from HR, there is never a clear answer except I don't know. They have a strict occurence policy even if you are one minute late coming in, returning from break or lunch, or leaving early (5 chances a day) to receive an occurrence. Ten occurrences within 90 days, FIRED. No matter the reason either. They have no empathy for single mothers or whatever the reason maybe. They also have mandatory ATO which is approved time off. You are lucky to get a full 40 hours a week. The upper management are highly misleading and very disorganized. If you work here there is NO room for advancement. A lot of run around and empty promises. I would not recommend this company simply because you can get a job like this that pays $14-16 plus benefits elsewhere. I wouldn't trust anything anyone says about advancement or higher pay...it never happens.
Executive Administrative (Current Employee) – Virginia – March 1, 2016
A typical day at work included a very busy day with demanding customers. Management was very helpful and always on site. My co-workers were great people and a joy to work with. The hardest part of the job was the commute and sometime the stressful work load/environment.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – February 10, 2016
GDIT is somewhat of a good company to work for. The benefits are excellent. But, some of the supervisor/management don't really understand how it is to be a CSR at the company. There should be a little more compassion for the representatives because we are the first line of defense at the company.
Convair may have been a large company, but it felt like family.
MASTER TOOL MAKER/JIGS & FIXTURES (LEADMAN) (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 9, 2016
I started at Convair as an apprentice. It was an intense 4 year experience that I will never forget. Having been trained in over 20 different jobs all related to tooling, it has helped me in some way or form in every job that I have had since.
Great place to work, lots of employee benefits even a park.
GDIT leadership knowingly allows or turns their head to unethical behavior within their contracts. They have horrible benefits that actually managed to get worse this year. Not a family company at all. If you want to work for a place that cares only about the dollar, over works you, under pays you and approves for you to work outside the scope of your contract- this place is for you.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – London, KY – January 5, 2016
Great place to work with great benefits and an awesome attendance policy. Some great people with great attitudes, IF they were all the same. Dealing with HR is a pain, but is sometimes necessary. Dealing with second shift hours leaves no time for a home or cultured lifestyle. But second shift offers a shift differential pay.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Chester, VA – March 7, 2016
the only thing that i really do not like about working here is that everybody tells you something different regarding policy and how things are actually suppose to be done or even what is done if an employee does something
they dont take doctor notes to excuses any absences
