    I have been working at General Atomics full-time

    Pros

    Cool products. Some really smart people. I really like my job, but the company culture is so bad that it makes most people disgruntled. Every other Friday off is nice.

    Cons

    Horrible culture. Employees left out of the loop on purpose. Management tries to keep engineers talking to customers. A lot of infighting - multiple personal "kingdoms". Most supervisors not trained properly. HR is absolutely worthless. Two classes of people at GA: the managers and the "sorry people". Employees blamed for management screw-ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fat, Dumb, and Happy. So much money is thrown at this company that you can afford to have more managers than "worker bees". Managers should realize that they have a job due to the hard work of the people doing the work and charging direct to contracts. Don't hire experienced engineers to work for inexperienced managers. Chain of command extremely confusing. At least 3 managers per worker. Shape up before the rug gets pulled out from under you by your customers. Too many decisions made based upon personal relationships and not business based. Too many fire drills. Reactionary management vs. proactive management. Very poor communication to the employees, but I guess that's ok because employees can't be trusted at GA.
