Top heavy - too many chiefs and nothing gets done!

Pros

If you are mediocre and not ambitious, this is the perfect place for you because you'll just float on by getting a paycheck, not being developed, and contribute very little.

Cons

Too many managers, every single one of them has to have a say and nothing ever gets approved. Projects will sit and sit and sit and pass from employee to employee that you feel you are in Groundhog's Day redoing the work someone before you had already redone for someone before them. It is a crazy circus here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get over your egos and positions of authority and make decisions that are best for the majority as opposed to your own selfish reasons.

    Overall decent people at GA-ASI; however, the HR department couldn't be worse

    I worked at General Atomics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits: 9/80, the pension, CAL, Christmas shut-down.

    Cons

    The company makes a solid product but it promotes and retains incompetent people. The HR department is no different. The department is quite large and has turned over almost 100% in the past couple years. There are a lot nasty people where favoritism is rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mr. Blue: Please do yourself a favor and clean house at the top - including the "leadership" in HR. It's a very unhealthy environment.
