    Ik heb voltijdgewerkt bij General Atomics voor meer dan 3 jaar

    Pluspunten

    Manager was amazing Project was decently fulfilling Worklife balance was excellent, like 100/100 perfect score, no joke Labs were a mess, I got to help make them better which was nice Very diverse workforce, I got to work with tons of women and folks whose English wasn't great, which helped me learn to communicate more effectively

    Minpunten

    They laid me and 16 other people off 3 weeks before Christmas (lmao) Defense contract work is always a crapshoot, if the work isn't won, you're out on the street Your program might be mismanaged, I got lucky(ish) Job duties took a while to align with advertised duties Salaries are designed to be uncompetitive to keep wages low Yearly raises are awarded on a merit system (up to your manager) Only so many above average raises handed out every year

    Ik heb voltijdgewerkt bij General Atomics voor meer dan 10 jaar

    Pluspunten

    1.0 9/80 schedule, competitive salary, great benefits 2.0 Flexible work schedule 3.0 Work is predetermined for you (you do not need to be creative - you follow management directives) 4.0 If you like a grindy type job where you don't need to think and can just make paper or code or test code or test results this is the place for you.

    Minpunten

    1.0 Old school management style - no headphones allowed. No fun basically. 2.0 People auditing work environment that may take away comforts like fans and other devices you use to get by in your office space everyday. 3.0 Creativity and productivity are constantly attacked by perpetual upper level management encroachment into technical project areas. If it moves in a way that is beneficial to the company it is attacked by many procedural engineering instructions to the point where it is taxed so heavily anyone but the most stalwart engineer will push it through. 4.0 Upper and middle management sits in luxury while other engineers suffer in a environment that lacks in true product quality and is all about paperwork and process. 5.0 Defense contracting is all about billable hours. Instead of focusing on efficiency and good products. The focus is on billing more for contracts to the government via more labor, when less labor could get the job done and yield a better product. It seems defense contracting is more about employing the populace than about making a great product at an effective price point, because if you don't spend the money - the next contract will be for less money (no incentive for smart engineers!). It makes us all pay more in taxes gives us a worse product and doesn't help advance STEM. 6.0 Finally - terrible management - all the good honest team members (or those who can risk leaving for better things) orientated people leave - the corrupt hardheaded people with no better place to go or no internal drive to strive for more in this world stay - and make everyone else miserable at this place. Use their position of power to make others as miserable as them and enforce this on other entrants to this upper class.

    Pluspunten

    Not really much to speak of unless you like being lazy, take 3 hours lunch, do little work and be in a dead end job with zero potential in promotion and nothing to learn.

    Minpunten

    You want a paycheck only and dont care about learning anything and want to rot in your dead end job work here. Management is clulesd. Lots of fancy process document that not a single engineer follows, its all for show. Pay is poor and technology is poorer. If you want learn something new in technology this aint the place. Dont waste your valuable time here. Its boring. Couldnt wait to get the hell out.

    Dependable business. Job security.

    Minpunten

    Depends on which group you are in and who your boss are, you get treated differently. Some manager don't care, some gives salary based on favortism. You can see people walking around, doing less work than you and make more money, because they got hired at a higher salary level. This place never fire anyone. so everyone who got locked in at a good salary stays. HR will negotiate salary if you find a higher paying job.
