Yes, there are layoffs sometimes. But every single large company has layoffs at some point. Some have them more often than others, and I think we are in the "others" group. Other than that, we get paid well, receive nice benefits, and at least for... — read more

It's saddening to see people calling each other liers and worse for calling the company a good place to work versus a bad place to work. GA experience is not the same for everybody. I know it doesn't fit anybody's narrative, but everybody has a... — read more
Any advice on how to deal with an incompetent manager? She has no idea what she is doing... Allows people to sleep at their desk and people hate dealing with her. If I stay I know it will k–l my career but I feel her boss is just as d–b as her — read more

I have been very disappointed in our projects lately. They are incomparable to the projects we used to work on when this company had a clearer vision of growth. Now it seems to me that they are not thinking about growth anymore, and the projects... — read more
The old guy that works in my department sits and does nothing all shift, he’s already past retirement age and chose to take the day off when the layoffs happened last year only to return to work after the fact, pretending he knew nothing of it! I... — read more
I don't know why or if it's just that Ive been here quite some time but in the past two months...many people have left! some have said bc of family others on better careers. i thought we were getting more contracts??
So many disgruntled and ungrateful employees. Just leave the company if you are no longer happy. Try finding a job that suits you and be useful. So many people lost their livelihood yet here you are complaining for still being employed by GA. How... — read more

Many of my colleagues have quit because they did not have any expectations that the situation would improve for a long time. Some of them agreed to a much lower pay than they had here. I went to a few interviews, I was also offered less paid jobs... — read more
I have a friend in Utah who has been waiting to be laid off for a long time because he literally had nothing to do. That’s why I am worried as well. I’d rather be overwhelmed with work. Now I’m worried about how long it can last like this with very... — read more
I just got a tip from an manager friend that another round of NDAs were signed. Watch out for more layoffs, alert friends that still work there. Be safe.
I work with the dumbest and most unskilled work force I have ever worked with in my career. I would not hire anyone I have come in contact with at GA. I cannot take it anymore and can finally leave since securing a new position. The workforce at... — read more
It really made me laugh when I saw a post in which someone mentioned that GA needs to start paying more to keep young people with ideas that will save this company. I, on the other hand, have seen a lot of young people who left not only because of a... — read more
I am glad I am no longer there. I left right before the huge layoff there (month before). I saw the writing on the wall as early as April when our managers were saying that their indirect costs were substantially exceeding their revenues. They have... — read more
Talk about "Brain Drain!" All the smart people left or are leaving. Remaining people are just the lazy dumb ones. =/ Also heard talk of GA selling certain divisions in 2021!
2021 will be the best year in GA history! Orders will start rolling in and job creation will boom! GA management is excited about the company’s future!!
All General Atomics does is jerks you around after you apply to any job openings with them. Total waste of time.
i know the week of July 6th was when the final plans were agreed upon and a select few were told outside of management. Supervisors acted as if they did not know... utter B.S.! you could literally see it in their eyes, i knew something was up!... — read more
Does anyone know how bad the 2021 forecast is? Many colleagues concerned about job security.
I spent almost four years in this company. I intended to leave it after first year but then I entered a comfort zone and, unfortunately, I decided to stay a little longer. However, the atmosphere as it is now in the company is extremely toxic and I... — read more
I have already heard this before, but now also seen it again on one of these threads that ASI will be sold to another contractor. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if that happened. It is not my intention to make a false alarm, but I wonder if you have... — read more
Work loads are non-existing. PTO is racking up! And you get to work from home but aren’t given any work to do! GA is truly the best place to work at right now! One would have to be crazy to leave a place that pays you for taking naps during work... — read more
The culture at GA has become increasingly toxic. I have seen people getting threaten to loose their job. I have witness awful behavior all the up to the director level. Thank god I don’t need this job and secured another position. I was not let... — read more
Was called into a meeting today asking if I could cut headcount further. More layoffs on the horizon along with another major reorg.
Haven't gotten any paperwork regarding it yet
I feel relief finally. Seeing people that 3 hour lunch breaks, fall asleep at their desk or opening play video games on their phone during the day and no one do anything about it. Being asked by HR if a colleague even showed up at work or asking if... — read more
Has anyone that has signed their paperwork gotten their severance pay? They said mid november... I think they are just dicking everyone around.
Has anyone received their personal belongings? I have received nothing from GA
