    Smoke and Mirrors, Illusions. Never mind the man behind the curtain - he lacks integrity.

    I have been working at Aerojet Rocketdyne full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    AJR is one of the primary leaders in supplying aerospace and defense with propulsion and energetics solutions focused at the space and missile defense sectors. They have been around for over 70 years leading the invention, development and production of critical technologies and products that support America's security, armed forces and space exploration initiatives. It's great to be part of an organization that provides products and solutions to support the United States of America.

    Cons

    Having worked for both large and small aerospace firms - my experience at AJR is unlike any other I've had in my many years working in the Aerospace/Defense industry. This organization is Large - Fat - Slow & unjustifiably expensive.

    Beware of a company that always has to advertise its core values because in most cases it's just smoke and mirrors. Honesty, Safety, Respect for Others, Quality, Accountability --> It was rare to see any managers/directors exhibit these traits within the organization. There is a severe lack of "practice what you preach".

    This company is overweight with incompetence and poor decision-making that stems from deep within its core. WB Jr is an arrogant bozo - doesn't understand the business or the competition and speaks to the employees like children, making series of unsubstantiated claims promising jobs and in some cases threatening jobs. Good grief - it's you who should find another job - too bad you don't write science fiction novels or you'd be outta here! As president of Aerojet, WB Jr. makes a base salary of $357k/yr, a bonus of $302k/yr and receives stock in the amount of $470k/yr, for a total of over $1M per year.
    (salary d0t com)

    Much like some complicated aerospace hardware that's broken - you cant always repair it by working at the surface defects - it needs to be taken down and stripped to the core and then rebuilt. That will be painful for this organization. Unfortunately, I don't have confidence things will turn around any time soon at this company. Too many good people have already gone since the acquisition was announced mid last year. Most companies exhibiting hard times start with RIFs and then site closures/reductions followed by salary reductions with the final step being bankruptcy and then asking the government for bailouts. This is all due to their large-fat-greedy- and ungrateful ways. I believe some of this may be on the near horizon for this company.

    Good engineers are chastised for the poor decisions made by managers and directors - unfair and unacceptable. Sometimes right-sizing a project is taken to extremes which leads to unforeseen detrimental consequences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put adequate resources, tools and training in place before the fact to improve the organization's products and processes; invest in the employee and develop them and hold them up and show the rest of the organization they are valued.

    Stop covering your behinds and stop lying (ie. practice Honesty)! Stand up and take responsibility for your actions (ie. be Accountable). Managers - stop disrespecting the employee and even your own counterparts! Stop putting good engineering on the wayside and put more focus on the technology, science and improved processes and put emphasis on improving/supporting your own people. Aside from a majority of poor managers, executive staff and know-nothing business development leaders - the engineering and technical ops employees at this company are some of the hardest working, intelligent, honest, dedicated and respectable people I have ever had the pleasure to work with in my many years in this business, despite all the challenges they had to deal with this past year.
    It's the employees that matter - the ones that help support the bottom line - somewhere along the way this has been forgotten.

    One of the problems here is there seems to be too much emphasis on the 'appearance of progress' with no real work actually getting done. Its all about hand-waving and smoke and mirrors with absolutely no accountability from management and directors and a reduced, almost lackadaisical emphasis on "solving the problems at hand".

    Its not all that super-duper and filled with pansies and unicorns as they initially would have you believe. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing and you're not sure who wants to throw you under the bus - but make sure you keep your helmet on because one way or another you're going to be taking a ride.
