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

Pros

My 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.

Cons

The 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 ManagementAdvice

From 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.
