    Former Employee - Graduate Development Program

    I worked at Cobham full-time (more than an year)


    The Graduate Development program allows you the opportunity to experience different business areas to see what best suits you, provides an opportunity to meet and work with more senior management, competitive compensation for a development program, some sites work a 9/80 schedule which is great for work-life balance, and the advantage to rotating around different site locations.


    Depending on which site you were at there are great differences in the company culture. The program also needs to have job coaching and training to prepare you for a position within the company once you rotate off of the GDP. Relocation allowances specific to the graduate development program really need to be reevaluated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management at the sites need to be more actively involved with the employees, current state is very disengaged.
