    Pros

    Helpful staff members who go out of their way to explain the purpose of my tasking; had a hands-on learning experience; and enjoyed the 9/80 work schedule.

    Cons

    Many senior members were considered high demand, low-density assets which made it difficult to help managers with some of their tasks.

    Good, Solid Company that makes UAVs "The Predator"

    Pros

    GA-ASI is a growing, solid company that offers good benefits including a pension plan. Nice work environment and room for growth. Compensation is decent. One of the best benefits is the 9/80 schedule (work 9 hours everyday and get every other Friday off).

    Cons

    Lots of politics and favoritism. There is some hostility between the different GA divisons and power struggles. The company is growing fast and growing pains are obvious.

    Pros

    The ASI division has a 9/80 work schedule and a pension.

    Cons

    The worst company I have ever worked for. Policies are archaic and straight out of a military playbook. This company doesn’t know what good leadership and performance looks like. Ever since they lost the MQ-25 contract, work has been drying up and people are sitting around with little to do.

    Not the place to work if you're fresh out of college. Great place to retire

    Pros

    Great benefits for someone fresh out of college. I really enjoyed the 9/80 schedule (work 9hrs/day and get every other Friday off). Decent pay.

    Cons

    There is no focus on developing new talent. The majority of employees I worked with were individuals who were looking for an easy 40-45 hours job and wanting a place to retire. But for new graduates, there was no focus on developing them into the next set of leaders. My manager, who GA allowed to work remotely from half way across the country, actually told me he wasn't interested in developing me.

    Waste of Time

    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.

    This company is in serious need of a management overhaul. Has become very top-heavy.

    Pros

    9/80 work week and they do have a pension plan. Other benefits come out of your paycheck. Lots to pick and choose from but you will pay for them.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT is so insensitive to the real work force. Play POLITICS all day long. No moving up unless you love to kiss-up and are a "YES" MAN.
