    I worked at Aerojet Rocketdyne part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Beautiful campus . Gave me a sense of pride to work there . I really lifestyle people.

    Cons

    Impossible to change any processes or make real improvements due to the difficulty in altering 40-50 year old rocket engine design. The place can really be stuck in the 60s or 70s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, followed by panel interview session, followed by 1:1 interview; weeks of dwell time throughout the process; follow-up between steps is non-existent (you have no idea what, if anything, is going on throughout the process); poor communication between candidate and company; inept HR department (lost documents/general confusion); enthusiasm for position and company waned by the time I was hired.
