Does General Atomics offer massages?

Pros

Great work/life balance, staffed well, friendly co-workers, 401k with match up to 8% (4% added over that by employer), and a pension on top of it. Benefits like free company gyms all over San Diego, good cafeterias, and even a GA pool near Torrey Pines.

Cons

Because of the work/life benefits, pension, etc people rarely leave. That results in few places to advance in some departments like project management and engineering, due to the number of employees competing.

Advice to Management

Revisit becoming more work from home or hybrid friendly, in non-manufacturing roles for PMs and PEs

Benefits like free company gyms all over San Diego, good cafeterias, and even a GA pool near Torrey Pines.

Does General Atomics have a pension plan?

Pros

GA does a lot of things right. Good pay, good benefits, 9/80 schedule, pension plan, work was good while it lasted.

Cons

GA is very top heavy with managers and program people, things don't get done fast enough to progress.

Advice to Management

LEAN up! there's way too many people doing nothing and getting paid a lot. There's always fears of layoffs because of how slow it is, some transparency and communication on the state of the company would be better than a vague email or filtered town hall questions.

Good pay, good benefits, 9/80 schedule, pension plan, work was good while it lasted.
