Pros

The longtime emps. that made, "G.A," what it is. The proudness you feel to be a part of something big for our country. Great benefits. continually growing field for future. encouragement to learn skills in other departments.

Cons

within the last year,many supervisor hires with very little knowledge of there job and or common sense. Drone-like emps. (flocks of sheep). Hired for quantity not quality work in an, R & D, location where creativity and ideas are what started the co. not very ISO compliant any more. Facilities, so behind in many unfinished jobs due to recent new supervisors ill lack of organization, priorities, and care for all fellow emps. and co.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring supervisors on the, "buddy", system. Try hiring them for there knowledge, skill and '"real", experience....... or they will be the demise of what used to be a great co.

    Pros

    Great benefits, country-club like campus, job security

    Cons

    Career advancement is glacial. You either have to wait until A) some one dies, B) some one retires, or C) you've reached your salary cap and the only way to give you a raise is to change your job title.

    Sometime the proverbial "right-hand" doesn't know what the left hand is doing also...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to, and promote talented employees. Clear out the cobweb staff.
