Pros

The only company that's never had a layoff. Appears to be opportunities for career advancement. Some departments and managers are good people.

Cons

Last 'raise' was embarassing, an insult. Conservative, military environment. 'Good ole boys club'. There are some managers who continue to be promoted in spite of their well known reputation. Upper management seems to ignore complaints about managers who 'produce'. Unless you have no life don't make this place a priority because it will suck you dry, then spit you out. Seems to be the norm with most companies these days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When the cost of living far exceeds a salary increase then it's time to reassess priorities - invest in less real estate and more in employee salaries.

    Pros

    Cutting edge product, excellent benefits, most employees work a 9-80, tuition reimbursement ($5000 per year), good location, nice people. There are lots of people here who love GA-ASI and devote countless hours to ensure our product is the best in the world. Devotion can be taken advantage of by managers and some people get burnt out. The pay is excellent for engineers and manufacturing folks. If you are in a support role, such as IT or Accounting the pay is not so stellar and your at the mercy of the "more important" groups requests and preferences.

    Cons

    If you don't work in the Engineering groups or the Manufacturing group you'll be subjected to wait for resources to become available and might see your benefits be reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
