I have been working at General Atomics full-time

Pros

Friendly people. Dominating company in UAV market, in addition to growing use of UAV drones in warfare, which results in very good job security. Good benfits. 9/80 schedule = Every other Friday off. It lets you complete chores, and it stacks with Federal Holidays, where you could get 4 days off.

Cons

If you want best and all of the benefits, it's going to cost you some money. Irrelevant training. Poor management. Extremely little career mobility. Some people I know have been doing exact same job for 3-5 years until they got moved around. Work is more of dog and pony show, always being reminded that there are tour groups (literally) and customers, therefore to be on our best professional behavior.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There should be more incentive for promotion and job transition.

    I worked at General Atomics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits are not bad you pay for them - health benefits are not cheap. Good policy for vacation and leave as far as accumulating hours.

    Cons

    Benefits are good but they come with a price, insurance is not cheap. Lack of motivation by everyone. Most pretty much do the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up.
