    I worked at General Atomics full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting place to work, specially for engineers and scientists.

    Cons

    Not so good for hourly employees (I was an avionics technician); horrible working conditions on OCONUS deployments, did not warrant the "high pay" which it wasn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no leadership, one of the main reasons the attrition and turnover is so high. Most hourly employees have an escape plan. Seasoned and experienced people leave often, taking all their training and knowledge elsewhere.
