I worked at General Atomics as an intern (More than 3 years)

Pros

Not much busywork, tons of items to tackle as an engineering intern. Very casual environment.

Cons

Your manager will get caught up in politics and may not be available to help you out at all times. Environment has a sense of who you know and who you friend, not quality of work.

Advice to Management

My manager was great, but at the executive level: work with those who have ideas to prospective customers.
