Now that we are almost a year in to GDIT’s famous lay-off, I’m no longer angry. They actually knew what was going to happen and left. People talked about the leadership and now we see they were telling the truth. When will the other vendors stop pretending?
This was all about getting rid of the investigation backlog. It did. Now it is an adjudication backlog.
Just a shell game. Always was.
Slightly different point of view on GDIT as I was just getting started with them when you were getting laid off (though that wasn’t mentioned during the hiring process). I do not believe that GDIT management was honest with those of us that stayed to the end. They encouraged investigators to look for other jobs at GDIT knowing full well that different skills were required - all to avoid a WARN situation. I do think that GDIT was smart to get out of the business (investigations were a small part of the CSRA business that they wanted), however, they were not telling the truth to investigators from May to September of last year, in my opinion.
While at the ACBI conference, I met someone from GDIT who was looking to rehire the BIs they laid off as ICs. I went for it and almost six months later, after completing the training for Raspberry Beret and DHS, I still haven’t received my credentials. I’m pretty sure part of if is due to the pandemic, but I think GDIT is just screwing around and not being serious about holding on to ICs.
When a company does layoffs. DO NOT trust them with any kind of reorganization or rehiring.
GDIT didn’t get out of it. OPM/NBIB/DCSA ■■■■ canned their contract after they dumped ISN the way they did on 1 May 2019.
Actually that’s not true! DCSA would not guarantee work (as there isn’t work) and GDIT did not want to take on the risk.
Waiting for the next bomb and wondering which company it will come from. Way too quiet.
Should know soon. Aren’t the reviews happening in the near future if not already?
Same is happening to me, but I’m supposed to work DHS contracts with ICE and CBP. I finished training March 1. It’s now the end of May. I’m being told that both agencies furloughed employees bc of COVID-19, so getting them to give final approval is moving slowly. I understand, but growing a little skeptical maybe.
I believe the prime contract expires this year and I am willing to bet that DCSA has a few surprises when it comes to renewing…
I know you’re the ISN advocate, that just simply isn’t true. Their contract was not terminated or their would have been a stop work order. There wasn’t. I just don’t understand how you take this so personal.
Well luckily for you, you don’t have to worry about that right. There’s no way I would be so deeply involved with something I’m no longer a part of. But hey people manage their time differently than others. You remind me of this supervisor over at ISN. He served in the military for awhile too.
ICE and CBP furloughed people. Don’t think so. They are actively hiring.
Where is the work? I have been in this business for nearly 15 years. I have ALWAYS had enough work. I haven’t seen any for 2 months. I have ICE, CBP, FRB and DCSA creds. I am a CI for 4 companies…I’m at a loss.
