  • Pension Plan(40 comments)

    Great benefit for employees.

  • 401K Plan(38 comments)

    General atomics offers 401k benefits

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(36 comments)

    Pretty piss poor, no sick, PTO is your sick and manditorily used. As a new hire you get 12 days per year. Winter vacation week they give you an option of using 2-3 PTO days or taking leave without pay... So assuming you use your PTO during winter you get 9-10 days PTO... don't get sick :) - this is the age of corporate slavery.

Good PTO but making EE’s use their own time during mandatory holiday shut downs in Dec feels unfair. Most EE’s come back to a new year with very little PTO especially newer ones who have not accumulated much.
