Its like going to a high school with grumpy old men
Install Tech III (Sheet Metal Fab) (Current Employee) –  Quonset Point, RIMarch 8, 2016
If you like getting paid for sitting on your butt all shift then, this job is for you. If you actually like to work your out of luck.


Pros

Pay is good, decent benefits
actual work is fine

Cons
Bad Management

Advancement depends on who you know, not skill or work ethic

Bad HR department

If management doesn't like you, you will have a bad time, regardless on how well you work.

a lot of "work harder", but at the same time they tell you to slow down because of the nature of having a government contract.
Pros
resonable chance of getting 2 $750 bonus a year
Cons
Bad Management

people are nice
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  London, KYMarch 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.
Pros
They have good benifits
Cons
They don't take Dr slips for days missed, they don't excuss them

Exceptional Company
Senior System Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, CODecember 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.
Pros
Good benefits, Good reimbursements, Good People, Good Enviroment
Cons
A lot of travel for some positions

Not bad
Training Instructor IV (Former Employee) –  Fort Belvoir, VAFebruary 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.
Pros
Great place to start
Cons
Very little advancement opportunities and small wage increases.

Attendence Policy Sucks
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Chester, VAMarch 30, 2016
Gets very boring and there are countless ways to get terminated. Training is great but doesn't allow hands on until you pass the test and if you fail 2 calls in one month then you could be fired
Pros
pay and benefits
Cons
polices and rules

Nationwide company, great benefits
Help Desk Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Las Cruces, NMMarch 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).
Pros
full benefits for the employee
Cons
low pay, in my area

Very disorganized and run arounds
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLFebruary 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.
Pros
Better than having no job
Cons
Empty promises and disorganized management

Executive Administrative (Current Employee) –  VirginiaMarch 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.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Heavy work load.

Great Company to Work for
Information Security Analyst (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLJanuary 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 (Current Employee) –  Hattiesburg, MSFebruary 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, CAFebruary 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.
Pros
Great place to work, lots of employee benefits even a park.
Cons
They shut down.

Unethical environment
Subject Matter Expert (Current Employee) –  Silver Spring, MDFebruary 5, 2016
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.
