Former Laboratory Technician III at General Dynamics Information Technology

GDIT is a part of General Dynamics and is a massive company and well-known defense contractor therefore having it listed on your resume can definitely help in the future. Much of the work is cutting edge and many skills can be learned. However, one thing to take into consideration is that nearly all positions outside of management are contingent upon project funds. Therefore, if the customer organization discontinues funding or runs out of funding, you no longer have a job. Some projects have a definite end date but often there is no definitive end date established. That is a big factor to consider when negotiating compensation. One downside to having such professional experience like working for GDIT is that it is easy to get pigeonholed into working in the contracting "world" and seeking something outside of that industry for a more permanent role could be become more challenging the longer you working in contracting positions.
