most days it was cleaning and restocking the buildings, cleaning and cutting the grounds. disposal of hazardous waste. other days it was helping out in the testing area. the hardest part was keeping up with the high demand of materials for the assembly floor.

Proposal Specialist (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 7, 2017
Millennials at work agree, they will be unable to keep us here for long. Stressful long work days and compensation does not reflect this hard work and loyalty. Consider this before accepting any job. Make sure to meet your team and management.
engineer (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 1, 2017
After a very difficult process (over about 7 years) this division of the company has finally turned around two large, complex DoD programs. Leadership is ruthless and unforgiving. President in charge humiliates subordinates in public. No chances for advancement from within.
Composite Technician III/ Peer Inspector (Current Employee) – Poway, CA – August 29, 2017
Very political and only "golf buddies" advance or get raises. Pay is usually good for a starting wage but raises are typically less than inflation. Diversity in hiring practices but bigotry runs rampant
Stock Clerk (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 23, 2017
Typical day was simple and fair. Determine the amount of stock coming in based off of the amount of testing and products being used and sold through out the season. Enjoyed people more than anything and I learned how to drive and order picker.
Field Service Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 14, 2017
Some of the top scientists in the world work at General Atomics and some of the projects, like the Electromagnetic Rail Gun. Utilize hardware and materials at a level that has never been done before in human history. With 8000 employees you find all kinds at GA and it is both fantastic and horrible at the same time.
Great place to work, great benefits and old style pension
Some of the managers are not professionally qualified.
