Topics regarding layoffs at General Atomics
It's saddening to see people calling each other liers and worse for calling the company a good place to work versus a bad place to work. GA experience is not the same for everybody. I know it doesn't fit anybody's narrative, but everybody has a... — read more

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
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?
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.
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
The industry as a whole has been devastated…. Every major operation has been hit hard… looking at GA numbers and orders… do people thing ASI will survive? If it does survive I don’t see how it can remain in the same capacity - major changes will... — 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
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

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
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
I was let go last year and just got rehired. Feels good to be back at a great company. I hope to retire at GA… lots of work to catch up on!
I used to be really proud to work for this company. Unfortunately, I think it is less and less relevant today.
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
I'm safe for now, but it became clear to me a long time ago that I don't have a bright future here so I tried to put away as much savings as possible. People talk a lot about exit strategies and that one should always be prepared, but that’s my... — read more

I just got a tip from an manager friend that another round of NDAs were signed. Watch out for more layoffs, alert friends that still work there. Be safe.
So many disgruntled and ungrateful employees. Just leave the company if you are no longer happy. Try finding a job that suits you and be useful. So many people lost their livelihood yet here you are complaining for still being employed by GA. How... — read more
