    I have been working at General Atomics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, competitive salaries. Many program managers, supervisors, and directors have a technical background and are very smart.

    Cons

    Managers are often hands off. The just give you a task and let you run with it. I like this, but some people want to be told exactly what to do all the time.
