    I have been working at Aerojet Rocketdyne full-time (More than 8 years)


    Pay and benefits are decent, especially vacation (3 weeks for under 10 years, up to 2 years accrual) and sick time (2 weeks/year, unlimited accrual). People are good to work with. You get to work with rockets!


    Lack of trust in senior management and company leadership. Working with the government is fraught with politics. Lack of strong engineering mentoring program.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne.


    I had two different interviews with the company. The first was a one on one interview where we discussed my resume and the programs the company has to offer. The second was a phone interview where I was asked basic behavioral interview questions. No technical questions were asked. One the offer was accepted, there was a background check and drug test.
