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

    Pros

    9/80 Work Schedule and every other Friday Off.

    Cons

    Low Pay. Absolutely no opportunity for advancement or growth. They have a company policy that you cannot move up into another position if it is more than 7% of your current pay. There are many internal talented employees that are not considered for positions due to this rule. It's absurd. They would rather hire from the outside and pay someone more than give a more than qualified internal employee the promotion and raise.
    Poor Management. Too many Chiefs and too little Indians.
    If you are retired Military, you are given a job even though you have no experience.
    No matter how hard you work, you will receive the said raise as someone who is a total slacker.
    No recognition for your work accomplishments
    Awful Time Card System. No flexibility with time. No overtime allowed and if you do work overtime, it will be removed from your timecard.
    There is no "team" mentality. Most departments would rather fight against each other than work together.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your 7% rule and allow for internal growth for loyal and talented employees. Allow employees a clear career path and offer incentive and compensation for their hard work.
    Get rid of useless overhead. There are so many people who slack off.
    Just because someone was in the Military, does not make them qualified for a position.

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

    Pros

    Money. If you deploy overseas, you get your base pay plus ~80% on top of that depending where they send you. Working 12 hours a day 7 days a week it's easy to make 100k during the first year. Company provided tooling.

    Cons

    Management sucks. The company has thousands of employees but is still ran like there are only 100. There are so many people coming and going it's hard to establish yourself among others. Yearly raises are pathetic. Has the whole military style "Hurry up and wait" vibe.
