Federal, Government, and Public Sector

I don't see many people on here from General Dynamics. What's the culture like? I went to a job fair to be cleared to a TS/SCI and they said the background check will take a little over a year lol.

I’d stay away from GDIT. A close friend of mine works there and she says it’s super disorganized and a real cut throat environment

Not a chance you go from no clearance to TS/SCI in a year these days. Know many that have been waiting 3 years. Even reinvestigation is delayed 6+ months

Doesn’t matter OP. SCI is basically a brand new process from S

My re-investigation has been sitting on a desk for almost 2 years right now. Luckily I’m still adjudicated positively indefinitely but it’s pretty crazy.

For those, like me, who are getting Covid complacent: this isn’t over yet. My 36 year old cousin died today, he caught the virus working in the kitchen of a nursing home. He had asthma and diabetes so was high risk, but he was in a county with 7 total deaths before today so he thought he was safe. A father of four, only child to a single mother, only grandchild of the grandparents he lived with. Even if you can catch this virus and be ok, please remember who you could spread it to.

I have an H-1B client who’s submitting a new petition to change employers. His H-4 family members are stuck abroad because of COVID travel restrictions. My understanding is that as soon as his petition is approved, his prior visa is invalid. Will his family still be able to enter the US on their current H-4s (which don’t expire until 2021), or will they need to wait until the consulates reopen to get new ones?
