Do Not Work There
I was told that I would be trained and was valued. Totally not true. No direction, communication. Unprofessional and leadership is terrible. Asked to do tasks with no training or access to the things you need.

Field Service is Demanding
Working in the field department, deployments were frequent and not necessarily always what is expected. Recent change of management may have corrected this.

Why am I being forced to do this?
The work at this company was very slow, but that would probably be due to government restrictions. They hired a lot of us for a new project but they didn't win the contract, so they had to put us in other teams. The day was easy and and relaxed. I would say this is a place to retire.

Work is in deployment rotations 3 months on 3 months off
Great company to work for. Not the easiest to get hired into. It’s a flex position company if you’re irking in the deployment groups. Otherwise most jobs are California based. Yearly raises help keep pay up.

Poor pay and disrespectful management.
Getting paid less than everyone hired on after you with less experience and absolutely no room for improvement or to move up in the company, management not caring about you as an individual.

The best aviation job
Requires flexibility. Sometimes requires deployments to remote locations. Excellent work/life balance. Benefits and pay are excellent. Job is not too stressful.

Poor Management
The campus is beautiful, the staff are nice however management or at least the manager I worked for wasn't the best. The traffic/ commute was awful. Free lunch was nice.

Watch your back!
The atmosphere at first was tenuous and clichés were the norm with petty back biting and behind the back talk. Struggling through to show my abilities and skills applied to the assignments, was at first noticed and appreciated. As years went by, political changes in the atmosphere and constantly being told that "they are senior to you", when finally achieving that level, now all, new junior technicians and seniors were on the same level. In lab back talk was the norm. This is where the immaturity inside the production lab came out in full view. Individuals loudly voicing their opinions regarding my advancement to Tech VI, while I was absent, on deployment CONUS. Such a thing should never have taken place and mishandled by supervisory staff. Managers, with focus on the Deployment Coordinator, made all decisions under very emotional situations and maintained a Master Chief attitude with all decisions and never displayed a sense of respect for senior personnel no matter how much they did to advance the field service support. Incompetence seemed to be rewarded and attention to detail was abandoned. Beware of a toxic environment from the very beginning if you're not a part of the clich.

Good company but hard to move up the ladder
Overall good company, but it's difficult to move up the ladder. Wouldn't recommend to a younger professional looking to advance his/her career quickly.

High turnover
I loved the people that I was working with while I was an employee. Unfortunately, there was no room for growth and/or training. Although people were hired from the outside with the same title.

A good place to start your career
Typical days at GA are very nice and interactive. Everything is pretty clean and tidy making for a refreshing work place to be in. Overall it is a pleasant campus filled with wonderful people and if this is your field then this is a great place to start your journey.

Great place to work
I would manage employees, schedule their day/week, perform quotes, sit in on development meetings, purchase necessary expendables, complete reports on varied subjects.
There was much to learn and that was the fun part.

Great place to work
Great place to work however, unfair treatment when it comes to promotion or promoting the right people who qualify. Does not handle issues fairly. Keep people with very bad behavior and attitude. But let good people leave or seek other place to work
