The d-mbest boss I have ever worked for my whole career is at GA. This individual doesn’t know basic industry knowledge or technology. It’s crazy how this person became a director. I am truly working with the laziest and less skilled labor force... — read more

That would be logical, but still, I don't believe that GE, despite the fact that many people are leaving, will not have significant cuts. I hope I'm wrong, but my experience with this company tells me that anything that can go wrong - will go wrong... — read more
I’m getting fed up with the slow paced and lazy work ethic that plagues GA and the entire defense contracting industry.... for those who left GA and got out of the industry entirely... how difficult was it? Where did you end up? How long did the job... — read more

My time at GA has come to an end! This was an interesting place to work. A lot of the things posted here are true. Very bad processes, talent pool of people lack up to date skills, very old work force and work ethic of employees is not the best. ... — read more
I’ve always loved my job and I’ve never complained about hard work or anything like that. I was not very interested in the situation in the company either, because I was always preoccupied specifically with my job. However, the atmosphere here lately... — read more
They simply don't want to. Even if a young person comes here, they realize very quickly that GA is not a company worth staying in and leave very quickly. What does this company have to offer young, skilled people? I'm afraid there's nothing left to... — read more
This company is stuck in the past and not moving forward at all. Working here I feel stuck in the past as well. The question is how marketable are you? I thought that finding a new job would be difficult, but I couldn't have imagined that it would... — read more
GA’s work force is so old. Full of people with outdated skills that don’t let the company grow. When I got to GA it felt like I stepped back in time. My manager and director were talking about technology from the 80s and weren’t even aware of... — read more
I wouldn’t want to belittle anyone, but I’ve really never worked in a company where I had to work with people who don’t like their job so much. I understand, GA doesn’t give any special motivation, but it’s really hard to work with someone who is so... — read more
https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/14/bank-of-america-ceo-brian-moynihan-details-back-to-office-plan.html Look at this. A money-hungry Fortune 500 bank cares more about its employees than GA does to its. HAH! Bank of America, which has to be ruthless... — read more

I might even consider staying in this company. However, GA has so many other issues that getting back to the office is the least of it.
How good are GA employees? Are they able to find jobs at other companies easy? Does having GA on your resume help or hurt you when looking for another job? How many people let go last year were able to find employment within 90 days? I am a... — read more
I hear chatter that this is the real reason we are returning in 6/21. Nothing about health or safety, all about profit. I need to know, is it true or are these rumors? If real, how can you guys actually confirm this? Not sure what to believe. — read more
I still haven’t heard any real and valid arguments for going back to the office? Will the company do better if we go back to the office? What is this all about? I am much more productive while working from home. Unfortunately, I don't have... — read more
Take vacation days. Go on sick leave. 2020 means you have a TON. For those with kids, it's YOUR right as a parent. For those with or living with immuno-compromised persons, it's YOUR right to protects those you loved. For everyone else, who... — read more
It is disappointing that GA is not getting with the times and telling enployees to come back from WFH in a couple of weeks. Anyone trying to do WFH longer? What are your reasonings for doing WFH longer?
This is mostly for new employees - leave before you get too comfortable. GA is one of the worst places to get stuck right now - and you can get stuck so easily. If you happen to know what you're doing you'll never be promoted. Your managers will want... — read more

1) Are the GA co-founders still working at GA or have they retired? Do they own the majority of the company still? 2) How likely is GA to be bought out by one of the other Aero companies? 3) What GA Programs are the best long term wise to be... — read more
My spouse heard GA will soon force employees back into the office. First, we have kids, and the schools not to mention daycare are still deciding to start when. Second, we are vaccinated, but our kids are not, and their are all these mutant Covid-19... — read more
I used to be really proud to work for this company. Unfortunately, I think it is less and less relevant today.
Data Device Corporation here in Poway, CA is looking for a couple of good Electrical Engineers, one that should know high speed signal integrity such as DDR2/DDR3/DDR4 and SERDES types, and another EE that doesn't need to be an SI guru. You can see... — read more
Those at the top know that people don't have many alternatives now and it's hard to get a new job and they use it to the maximum. That's what frustrates me the most. Do you think that GA has never had a greater culture of fear than now? Those at... — read more
That is what disappointed me the most, that injustice, unfounded favoritism, nepotism. I am now in a company where I earn a lot less, but I am much happier. I could have been rehired, but there’s no way I’d come back here even if they offered me... — read more

Any information on the new wave of layoffs coming? I heard that people have been leaving like crazy so hopefully that will soften the blow or eliminate the need for another round?
I was just laid off this morning from GA-EMS. HR said the layoff number is 152 being let go. They/me remain GA employees through July 19 (60 days) and will continue to be paid. Not sure about any severance package (forgot to ask in the heat of the... — read more
