Thread regarding General Atomics layoffs

GA benefits are not on Par

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 am not going to take the job but I am a bit shocked by the response from GA…. Did they not think I would check ???

@1gqy, Well said! I hope you don't mind if I copy this post into a new thread. I am one of those employees who left.

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 thing, they were paying them next to nothing in comparison with other employers. During the time when other aerospace firms were cutting back, they were hiring. I noticed that around 2019, things changed quite a bit and the good feelings I had disappeared. During the Covid BS, the executives there used the pandemic as an excuse to lay people off who were on the higher pay scale. I could see the writing on the wall and got out of there right before the layoffs. I found out several months later that many of the longtime loyal employees were shown the door which were the ones that were making more money. GA thought these young people would just be glad they had a job and would stick around. However, many of them to their credit, left for better opportunities. These young people are a lot smarter than the leadership gave them credit for. Now most of those young people they thought would stay, left voluntarily. Don't accept the offer from them, there are much better opportunities available for less effort.

GA never layoffs cheap employees should be the saying. Example would be: I have seen people who get let go every where they work but GA keeps them bc they are extra cheap and just happy to have a job. It’s the people that excel that leave pretty quick.
