I am currently weighing the pros and cons of whether to leave. I haven't been happy here for a long time, but I'm not happy with the offer I got from another company either. I am afraid of a new beginning after spending a long time here. I wonder... — read more
I hear lots of complaining about GA in this forum. The real question is what are you doing about? You guys whine and moan but no one actually takes some action and leave the company or change their environment somehow. My question is: besides... — read more
For those who have left GA, what company did you move to? For those who are thinking of leaving GA, what companies are you interested in going to?
Literally all the people I loved working with have left. I know a few people who left not because of pay, but because of the terribly demotivating atmosphere that, in my opinion, always comes from the top. GA is obviously not doing anything anymore... — read more
Garbage Atomics or Geriatric Atomics! It's a toxic culture with below industry compensation and greater turnover than the New England Patriots (post-Tom Brady). At my new job, my comp. is more than my manager's manager!! Tech takes certain people... — read more
It's most likely not the pay, which is under industry standards. It's certainly not benefits, which are lacking in every respect. It can't be career growth since it's non-existent unless you know the right people. So what is it? Why are people... — read more
Title says it all. GA Senior Management is the biggest joke of all time. Period.
When they overload me with more extra work, of course I ask what the priority is. However, it seems that there are no priorities here anymore??? Everything is a priority for them. GA wants everything done in the shortest possible time... — read more
I think more people have left GA lately than all these years I’ve been here. Those who are still here are already feeling the effects of the attrition. However, management does not seem overly concerned. I wonder if it is not high time to start... — read more
GA does not value hard working employees, there are great people wasting time there. Just find a better job or get together and fight for a better salary or hourly pay. California is expensive af to be getting paid less than 100k. Im serious at least... — read more
I understand that laying off older and experienced employees makes sense as simply a cost-cutting measure considering they are paid the most. However, what management doesn't take into account is the price of knowledge and experience we're losing... — read more
I’ve changed a few companies and this is certainly the place where I’m the least busy. I have no reason to be a cheerleader of this company, I just want to be realistic and fair. People exaggerate a bit with complains about overload, right? — read more
It is utter madness that GA is simultaneously struggling to attract new people here, while using various ways to get rid of long term employees without giving them layoffs and severance pay. Management first used tricks such as overloading... — read more
The mask mandate is not GA’s fault… but they do have the ability to send us back to WFH. Of course, the old men at the top won’t do it. Another prime example of GA being an outdated, reactive company instead of do-g any proactive. — read more
I heard a rumor that GA was hiring! So I checked the GA website and the rumor is true!! gA is hiring!
If the rumor about cuts, which is spreading, is really true, then I am sure that for most it will not be very bad news, given that me and almost all my colleagues want to be layoff targets. Sure, if rumor turns out to be true, I feel sorry for... — read more
The rumor mill is on fire right now about another layoff soon, any real intel?
I worked here for 9 years and recently quit, senior management has ruined the company and it's culture. The pay went from uncompetitive to absurdly low at the same time as layoffs and shameful appeals from management to "bear down" because "cost is... — read more
I’ve decided to quit GA. I don’t have a backup plan yet but I got lots of money saved up over the years so I’ll be ok. GA’s future is pretty grim and it’s finally dawned on me that the people I work with aren’t very bright. — read more
Working at GA has allowed me to work for a great company, earn great pay and work with leading edge technology. GA always has the latest technology and is leading edge in the drone industry. Working with GA has open doors for me that if I ever... — read more
When I left GA and interviewed at other places my skill set was very outdated. Although I was an expert in certain technology none of it was leading edge or even last year’s technology. I was often giving examples of processes and tech that had been... — read more
I admit that I could look for new opportunities much more proactively given that I like the general atmosphere here less and less. On the other hand, I’m a little older so perhaps it's hard for me to decide to start from scratch all over again. I... — read more
I'm sorry that GA is like this today. I used to love working here, and there were even moments when I was proud to be a part of this company. Mismanagment has brought down this company to its knees and unfortunately, even though I thought it could... — read more
Still not clear to me how to get promotion here? What is the way? Is this even possible trough hard work only?
I woke up from my make yesterday at GA and got a raise for working hard!
like 99 cents broke! Turnover so high, Workers and Managers so stressed, no time to actually develop a career or compete in either the high-end or low-cost market. GA is a slow sinking ship. Bonuses are insulting. Dust the resume off and find... — read more
When something goes wrong, I guess you should look for a solution, not spend time on blaming each other. That’s one of the things I like the least about this company. It seems that it is difficult for our managers to accept the responsibility and... — read more
I have never worked at a place where someone who has a bachelors degree in history would qualify you to be a head engineer until I went to GA. To say that GA gives you outdated skills would be an understatement. Most GA employees have no skills
I don't think GA is to be blamed for that as it's always mostly up to the individual employee and his commitment to the job. However, do you also think that most of us here have outdated skills?
Permanent discharge of workers, or layoff, in my opinion also implies all those situations in which employees are under so much pressure that they have to look for a new job. Unfortunately, I have noticed that this company does not use this kind of... — read more
I see a lot of people in GA are leaving to go to companies with better WFH policies. What are some companies that still offer WFH as an option that people are jumping to?
Who in their right mind lays people off in the middle of one of the worst labor shortages ever? I understand they want to get rid of people with higher pay, but they won't be able to find cheaper employees to replace them in the current market. Does... — read more
It’s amazing to me that some have spent many years here and have never tested their marketability in the meantime. Why is this happening? Is it possible that there are those who, despite everything, still think that their job is safe? I guess they... — read more
How are we doing on cuts today? Are any more planned for this week or was yesterday it?
100 people at GA-SI being laid off today. It’s not surprising when you over staff, crash airplanes constantly with under qualified aircrew, many of which start at $80-90/hour. Sad day but hope everyone is able to find something else relatively... — read more
I never knew how good I had it at GA. I was able to nap, miss every deadline and fail at every project and was still given a raised and told how good I was. My whole division, department, heck the whole business failed up together. Now I am forced... — read more
All those former colleagues got a package, got relief and now work in much better companies. Short term stress was well worth it in their case. Somehow it seems to me that those who survive layoffs are in a much worse position.
Was waiting on the email that we would have to submit to an unconstitutional EO by Biden and as sure as the sun rises, we just got it. Have till Nov 24th to receive the 2nd dose. Maybe they won't lay you off immediately after the 2nd shot, maybe they... — read more
Can people share who the most ignorant or ill qualified bosses are at GA?
