Does anyone know why? Is this a cost cutting initiative?
GA-EMS people—Scott Forney has no idea what he’s doing.
GA-EMS has no direction and is hemorrhaging money, and the issue starts at the top. I’m not sure how GA-EMS has not been absorbed by another company yet, but it feels like it has to happen at some point.
Rumor has it that GA is postering for a merger with another large defense company. Thoughts??
We need to focus on what we're good at
GA promised no layoffs. GA promised the future was bright and hired a bunch of people in 2019 to handle the massive orders of 2020 - all orders were cancelled and massive layoffs followed. GA has never been a leading edge defense company and has... — read more
I am truly working with the d-mbest and laziest people I have ever worked with in my life! It’s hard to believe this company is still in business
Work Life Balance still good post layoff
Love the work life balance here at GA even after the layoff. Really proud of working here! Hence, why I give them 5 star reviews on Glassdoor and encourage my coworkers to do the same! :)
Overtime and Overly Tired
Anyone else being slammed with an unmanageable work level post layoff? The comments I am hearing from management are basically to suck it up, we’re not getting any help, and work over time… Who has much incentive to stay, especially when you see... — read more

There are a bunch of better jobs than GA. I got a letter form an attorney someone did the right thing and sued their a-s..

General Atomics is the future of defense technology
Move over Lockheed, Boeing, Raytheon, etc. General Atomics is a forward thinking company that will surpass all others down the line. I am sooooo proud to be part of this journey to aerospace dominance and superiority.

Lots of Work at GA
Don’t listen to the naysayers on here. GA has a solid backlog, in particular from FMS customers. They will be fine for years to come. GA is a great place to work at.
Where does GA find the people to lay off?
The company seems to be hemorrhaging employees anyways. Where the he-l are they finding people to get rid of it a time win all the employees who are left are getting overworked and overstressed?
I Love it at GA :)
It’s great. I’ve had a good time since I started working here. I want to be here for as long as possible.
GA is Great!
I’m proud to work here.

GA Does Not Layoff
GA just had to cut a large amount of dead weight!
Unexpected... or not?
Unfortunately, I had a premonition that there might be cuts. Our manager was acting very strange. Good luck to everyone affected!
Is GA a premier defense contractor?
Asking for a friend.
Until you find your name on the list...
Some people have been in denial for the last two years... And now it's a reality... There are so many postings of no lay-offs, future is bright, work is solid, etc.., Until you find your name on the list.

GA does not Layoff
When starting work at GA - everyone bragged in the interview that GA does not layoff. They actually justified the low salary by stating job security is factor in. From the post that are on here it would appear GA does layoff. My question would be... — read more
GA Laying Off 500?
Fake news or real news?
I would only be willing to come back to GA if they
transferred the entire HR and Ethics Departments to the west side of Chicago or St Louis in a gang area and made all of GA HR and Ethics staff move there. Both General Atomics HR and Ethics need to be as far away from San Diego as possible.
