Taking advantage of down economy

Technician III (Current Employee)
Poway, CA

I have been working at General Atomics

ProsFlexible working conditions. Onsite health facility. Easy use of granted time off for personal reasons. Located away from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Diego. Every other Friday is off with the 9hr work days.

ConsCompletely taking advantage of down economy and not willing to pay what employees are worth. Recruitment process was worst and most unprofessional I've experienced. Never available, never return phone calls or emails, and very lazy approach with questions.

Advice to Senior ManagementLittle to no communication between management and employees. Overall lack of accountability on employees. General sense of a lack of urgency in process improvement. "That's the way we've always done it" approach. Great product with great future success but will be eventually crippled by the lack of better mid-level management, training, and mentorship programs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
