    I worked at General Atomics as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not much busywork, tons of items to tackle as an engineering intern. Very casual environment.

    Cons

    Your manager will get caught up in politics and may not be available to help you out at all times. Environment has a sense of who you know and who you friend, not quality of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My manager was great, but at the executive level: work with those who have ideas to prospective customers.

    I have been working at General Atomics full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    As with any job, this will depend on your department and direct manager but my experience with GA has been been excellent. Great benefits, decent pay, flexibility, onsite gym, pool etc. I went through a divorce and my boss was very understanding. I missed a fair share of days due to court appearances etc, but was able to make up the time and still maintain solid reviews and pay raises.

    Cons

    I don't have too many cons to list, other than the general frustrations one might experience at any job. Putting up with the lazy jerk, or two, I guess but those are the exceptions. Most coworkers are helpful, honest and knowledgeable.
