Neutral Outlook

I worked at General Atomics full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Beautiful campus, gym and pool on campus for employees. Great people there, smart and friendly

Cons

Too much bureaucracy and red tape to get things done sometimes. Also owners are very fickle about which programs to continue funding after contracts are over. Lots of reorganizations in short amount of time, so hard to be sure of your groups stability/funding

    I have been working at General Atomics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Able to work with great technology. Up to date hardware in data centers. Provides training on items that you support.

    Cons

    Frequently pulled off projects to work on other projects. Put on so many projects it is difficult to complete them in a timely fashion.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees the project goal and let them do what they were hired to do to complete the project. Prioritize projects and have employees focus and complete them without ping-ponging between many projects.
