Poor Management running the solid employees out

Engineer (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

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

ProsMy coworkers make the day worth starting at this company. If it wasn't for these good people I would dread walking up in the morning.

ConsThe management. This company has the worst management style, structure and management maturity I have been witnessed in 15 years of my professional career. Leadership is not present, nor is questioning an obvious poor decision tolerated in a professional manor. Belittling, degrading and alienating employees is a common theme for directors, managers and senior management including VP's.

Advice to Senior ManagementFrom top to bottom on the management team, learn what a successful manager is and how to encourage employees and help grow the company in the positive way.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Disappointing

Manufacturing (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

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… 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… Advice to Senior Management: There should be more incentive for promotion and job transition. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
