I have been working at General Atomics full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

EMS is new and has a lot of potential however they will not retain good talent if they continue to do business as they do.

Cons

processes are broken, no training, inefficient, manual work that could be automated but people refuse to change, no promotion path or advancement structure, low end of compensation range, rigid structure, don't act like they care about their employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

there needs to be training for managers, i dont know how many of them got in their roles but they do not know how to effectively manage / develop their employees

    I have been working at General Atomics

    Pros

    Flexible 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.

    Cons

    Completely 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 ManagementAdvice

    Little 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.
