Senior Supervisor for Theater Redeployment Center (Former Employee) – Camp Arifjan, Kuwait – April 14, 2019
Good company, but don't expect to be treated equally. Lots of racial bias in my area. First impressions are huge on this contract. If one manager decides they don't like you, plan on hanging it up sooner rather than later
It was the first time that I would wake up and wanted to go to work. I enjoyed the quietness, calm professional personnel I worked with. There was no micro-management which made working incredibly easy and productive. I did not feel pressured and that feeling made me work harder.
If I was ever granted the opportunity I would be proud to join the GDIT Team again.
ILS Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Al Asimah – March 9, 2018
We start our day with planning the right objectives by proper communication with team member and leaders.
Increase on knowledge of many international guidelines on material management procedures. Even how complicated things are; there is always an answer from senior's experience and coordination is on #1 priority.
Language barriers from diverse personnel is quite a challenge though thanks to Google's Translate - we overcome many obstacles within us. Its about respect of culture and beliefs, and still focus on one goal.
"Greetings" and "Goodbye" on a days work is nice - and most specially when the weekends and holidays are just hours away. Also, its nice to know that people's care is within grasp.

This was my first time stepping out of the country to work. I learned to emprove on my skill and was push to to learn more which was great. Management was great as well because they wnated us to learn more for advancment. We became a family in with in the system. This General Dynamics was very different than todays General Dynamics. It offered stability job security and benefits for growth. But more on the professional level to where other companies employees wanted to get in because they heard and had seen that it was a great place to work.
Professonal place to work.
Did not want to work any place else even if you were offered more.
Depending on the contract/position, your experience could differ greatly.. You generally work 12 hours a day, five to seven days a week. I haven't had any issues with management, always very helpful and easy going.

Great coworkers, bonus/overtime pay, free coffee, plenty of training and support, opportunities to advance, exchange program, upper level management tries to get to know the lower-level employees, can be fulfilling work

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – Kuwait City, KU – June 16, 2015
Company is in need of restructuring, operating costs and overhead is costing company productivity. Poor support systems exist for managers and opportunities for employee educational advancement and development is near non-existent.
A typical day at work is busy What I have learned is how to use MS ACCESS more effectively and Windows server 2003 Management some good some not so good Co-workers some good some not so good Hardest part of my job sometimes keeping up with the demands as the IT guy Most enjoyable part are the challenges I am presented with and finding a solution.

Great team members to work with and the management was very involved in projects to ensure they were met with the best standards.
Systems Administrator (Current Employee) – Kuwait – March 12, 2015
I enjoy working with this company, even during the brief time that I have been there. Work environment was as expected, and my co-workers assisted when necessary. I was allowed to work under minimal supervision after gaining the trust within the team to accomplish given tasks.
GDIT is a great company as long as you are a productive employee (and I am). Show them that you are willing to go above and beyond and they will reward you for that. There's a disconnect sometimes between Corporate and the site locations, but I think that's with every company in some way. I think GDIT is a great company!
Rewards for good work.
Some Disconnect between senior management and site management.
