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
Topics regarding layoffs at General Atomics
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
Has anyone heard of more layoffs coming in January? Earlier posts have said to expect more. I have not heard anything. People are leaving this Company, they don't feel secure here anymore. I heard the financial outlook does not look good... — read more

https://insidedefense.com/insider/general-atomics-wins-74-billion-supply-mq-9-reapers GA is calling bc days after the target layoffs - the Air force reverses course and continues to buy MQ-9s. The main reason for the layoffs was due to the lost... — read more
is anyone going to accept the terms and sign the severance package? I think its very odd that the company is calling people asking if they need help with the paperwork almost as if they want us to sign it.
So I got an EMAIL today reminding us to sign our paperwork. Why would they put our personal email address in a group email for everyone to see. They are blasting our personal email to everyone who got laid off, then tried to pull the email back. But... — read more
Has anyone gotten pressured to sign the separation agreement in these last few days? Is there any repercussions if we don't? Other than losing out what was provided in the agreement?
Has anyone tried filing a claim for unemployment? Did you encounter any problems?

Has anyone noticed there is a new entry on your check if you’ve been laid off. COVID-19 now appears on my checks after layoffs. What is that all about?

I'm still there and I've watched for years as supervisors scramble to look good for their manager and directors. Doesn't matter how often you point out the actual problems they ignore it and continue to do the same damn things. The place ignores... — read more

People are leaving like crazy! Turnover seems to be picking up after layoffs. Only people staying are the ones that have been here forever and can’t find another job. I actually thought GA was having another round of layoffs
I understand layoffs might be a necessity right now, but there are so many better ways to do this than the way General Atomics chose. They treated loyal employees like trash, like disposable goods that were once useful but can now be discarded... — read more

Laying off the hardest and most experienced employees and keeping all the brown nosers and new hires is a disaster waiting to happen. I'd really like to know who thought that would be a good long-term strategy. I'm personally looking forward to the... — read more
How is it even legal to lay off employees then turn around and post open positions? Why terminate in the first place? The years of experienced long time employees have far more value than any new hire. If GA thinks that new hires will give the same... — read more
