Feeling stagnant is a good sign that it's time to quit. I don't find any room to grow here. You?
GA is a unique company. Many comments concerning work ethic on here are true about employees. But that isn’t the reason I am leaving. The reason I am leaving is better benefits and overall package. And bc of poor management… management does not... — read more
Why all the hate? Let’s just get the facts out! GA doesn’t pay the best, GA benefits are below industry standards, retirement is below industry standards and we aren’t leading edge in technology… anyone with logic wouldn’t argue against those... — read more
I am curious what are your expectations from the leadership team? I personally do not expect anything from the current leadership. I don't trust them at all.
GA is good at bidding on contracts that no one else wants! When GA is working in its sweet zone it is winning contracts that all the big boys over look. GA will never pay industry wages! GA will never attract or keep quality talent as this is not... — read more
There are too many things to criticize but I'm trying to think of what GA is still good at... it's not that easy...
Is it happening?
All hands and Town Hall this week for ASI & EMS both alluded to assessments of salaries to try and help with the attrition challenges. Does anyone know anything more or when they are getting rolled out?
Finally GA gets a break. This is a high visibility project for GA. Hopefully, this goes through, don't see why it wouldn't. This can be a game changer in the war. Business Insider: US to sell drones that can carry Hellfire missiles to Ukraine:... — read more
Wrong people aren’t at the top, people aren’t lazy, technology isn’t behind, everything is just right at GA bc GA is a $hitty company…. This is what it all boils down to
I finally got a new offer. What a relief. Wrong people in leading positions have brought GA into this situation. The worst part is that they are so convinced that they are doing a great job. Sometimes I get the feeling that they are totally detached... — read more
Our group's manager has not informed this to us. Is remote working only allowed at specific GA sites or for job titles like managers or HR types? With the cost of gas now and s my commute is overstressing my monthly budget. I would like to know more... — read more
GA is a great company to work for. Very relaxed environment and generous with deadlines. For how much one really works pay is great 👍…. With all these new contracts in the pipeline hiring looks to be going crazy again… good and bright days ahead!
For as long as this company valued knowledgeable employees, it was nice to work here. What happened in the meantime so GA started creating a culture of mediocrity? I don't know the answer to that question. The only thing I know is that companies... — read more
Through d-mb luck, GA was in the right place at the right time for 9/11, because they had the only drone capable of carrying missiles. The company confused being the only game in town with being the “best”, and that early success went to their heads... — read more
Is if they transferred all GA HR staff and GA Managers to a far away remote site such as St Louis or Chicago. And don't give these people computers or cellphones so the only way the can communicate with GA people in Calif is through the US mail. ... — read more
Wow Linden finally caved in to the attrition rate and is allowing any positions that are capable of being worked remotely to be worked remotely. Will this increase retention or attract candidates to GA?
Anyone tracking new restructuring going in the high desert?
First of all, I am disappointed. Why is it getting harder and harder for GA to get contracts, even smaller ones? What is the reason?
but none of them are from Garbage Atomics! cause Geriatric Atomics suckssss have fun with your $0.99 contracts and 2% bonus. we will party with our $100M contract and 35% bonus! hahahahah
Every week I get an email from someone at GA thanking everyone for their time here and announcing they are leaving the company. Although GA hardly wins contracts anymore, they are not going to have enough employees to work those few contracts at... — read more
I've been thinking about the reasons why the company is losing contracts. Can the leadership do anything about it, and if so, does it actually intend to do something so that GA doesn't continue losing contracts?
Not that many left our team lately, but unfortunately, the best ones have left already.
According to upper management, GA has a healthy back log, no retention issues, and a bright future. Do they reeeeally think their employees buy that?
A lot of people told me that they experienced cultural shock after they left here and went to another company. I guess after spending years in unhealthy work culture it takes a long time to get used to a culture that is significantly different... — read more
NEW: @OMarkarova, Ukraine's ambassador to the United States, met last week with officials from @GeneralAtomics, maker of Reaper and Predator drones. General Atomics says it has unmanned strike aircraft ready to go if the U.S. government... — read more
Since I'm not expecting to get a response from someone who's regretted leaving here, I am just wondering about those who were lucky enough to leave here already - how much better pay and benefits did you get? I received an offer that includes a 20%... — read more

If you're looking for a job as a radar technician, there are a lot more other companies that would peak your interest and pay you the respect as a qualified technician other than a position at GA would get you. let's just say that even after 10 years... — read more
Yes, I have been searching as well for months and yes, I have had half a dozen interviews so far and I'm yet to get one offer that's not insulting when it comes to the pay. I know my worth and I know it's clear to anybody who looks at my resume and... — read more
Several years ago, GA needed to attract skilled talent so they paid people more money to come over. In fact, that is what enticed me to take a job there. Over the years, I noticed that they were hiring many young people and although that is a good... — read more
So far I have tried to have the best possible performance. After a colleague who had a great performance got laid off, I decided that I absolutely don’t want to bother anymore. What is the value of great performance here anyway?? The leadership... — read more
I’m trying to leave GA… but I’m not sure where to apply to/go next? Who’s hiring right now? Serious responses only please.
I got an offer to work at GA and it was significantly below market. I advised why the offer was so low and. It on par and GA response was … “we never layoff and we factor that into the offer”. Then I came on here and see that layoffs did occur …. I... — read more
And the fall continues. Here’s the link: https://www.ga-asi.com/statement-on-the-cancellation-of-project-air-7003
Talent is leaving, they arent hiring qualified replacements, the most toxic people stay and get promoted. Now, they are losing money on contracts and not taking action to course correct, except more layoffs. There are a lot of cliche poor business... — read more
It's my own fault. For a while, I was constantly looking for a new job because it was clear to me that my job here was more than unstable. Then the situation improved a bit so I relaxed and stopped sending out applications. And now, again, rumors... — read more
If there is an ASI lay-off, then Linden to all of us. But it’s all speculation as of right now so I will give him the benefit of the doubt.
A source in ASI and GA saying that tomorrow they’re laying off more people.
