    I worked at General Atomics

    Pros

    By GOD, We helped get Ben Lauden. I started as an undegreed tech and worked my way to Electrical Engineer 4 in 4 years. This place gave me the freedom to excel in my chosen field. There were no limits and no glass ceiling for undegreed engineers. I have carried this experience forward to fuel cell controls, nuclear reactor robotics, and wind turbine controls. GA-ASI was my springboard.

    Cons

    San Diego commutes are a real pain. Some days you cannot make it to work if you live in certain areas. No other negative comments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Your role in the world is being rewarded. You provide the tools to make our country a much safer place in this insane world.

    I have been working at General Atomics

    Pros

    GA-ASI is a growing, solid company that offers good benefits including a pension plan. Nice work environment and room for growth. Compensation is decent. One of the best benefits is the 9/80 schedule (work 9 hours everyday and get every other Friday off).

    Cons

    Lots of politics and favoritism. There is some hostility between the different GA divisons and power struggles. The company is growing fast and growing pains are obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communitcation is poor and there are some big ego's at the higher levels. Encourage and develop collaboration and cooperation amongst management and between the different divisions.
