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.

    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.
