A place only to learn about Predator UAV technology
Aeronautical Engineer (Current Employee) – San Diego – May 23, 2015
This is only a place for serious self-starters to learn about one of the most famous UAVs and gather experience in the design, construction, test, and delivery of MALE UAVs.
Do not expect quality management, job stability, career development, good treatment, respect, praise, training, good tools, protection, or assistance of any kind. To learn you have to be intrapreneurial in the extreme or you will be wasting your time. It is easy to get sidetracked here and learn nothing. The culture is unique and is dissimilar to any other aerospace environment. Much of it is home grown. Don't expect to make friends here. Think of it as survivor island.
Your relationship to the company is only a financial transaction at best. Expect a 4-5 year average tenure here if successful.
Exposure to aviation history.
Carnivorous politics. Dog eat dog culture. Survival is success here.
