Thread regarding General Atomics layoffs

Fertile ground for good ideas?

It really made me laugh when I saw a post in which someone mentioned that GA needs to start paying more to keep young people with ideas that will save this company. I, on the other hand, have seen a lot of young people who left not only because of a higher salary, but because their ideas and their work had no echo in GA, so they found other places where their opinion is more respected.
I’m afraid GA is no longer a place for good ideas because they remain unrecognized.

I would agree GA was selling discounted drones compared to NG and LM.... we were selling cheap surveillance drones that were not suitable for combat... and this is the exact reason why the AF canceled the contract... Do to the war in the Middle East and the lack of advance tech to shoot drones down GA was able to stay in the game but now even in the Middle East GA drones are being shot down... looks like most people at GA don’t even realize this ... very sad

Your post is laughable 😂. UAVs are not leading edge technology. UAVs are the discounted drone models. You obviously know nothing about the competition to make a funny statement like this. The AF is leaving GA due to outdated technology and only stay with GA due to the discounted price tag of the UAVs... You must be GA management bc they were saying the same thing as you when the AF left them for leading edge technology drones

I disagree with the Poster that says GA has never been leading edge. In the 2000s, GA and its UAV was the ONLY show in town. Unlimited ISR for the military? Absolute F^** ly!!
The Poster also said GA was a discount aerospace company. Um - No. Have you seen the price tag?? GA sells at a huge mark-up!!!
GA will survive, but the company sadly is past it's prime, just zombie shell of company. Northrop, Kratos, or Boeing are going to eat our lunch for years to come.

GA has never been a place for good ideas... that is not GA’s business model to be leading edge... GA is the discount store of areospace and defense.... GA picks up the crumbs or keeps old technology running just a little bit longer... GA has never been leading edge and has never stated so.... GA will do just find running around areospace conventions saying 1 dollar 💵, 1 dollar everything 1 dollar... that is how GA has survived all this time
