    I have been working at Aerojet Rocketdyne full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Compensation package is fair, 9/80 schedule is nice, holiday shutdown period is very civilized. The unionized workers can be helpful, excellent professionals. They really do try to be a nice place to work.

    Cons

    Classic old-school management structure is top heavy and rigid. Review process is an HR enforced march to the sea. The unionized workers can be stubborn good-ol-boys once they settle in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once a manager has proven themselves to be an effective leader, give them the latitude to stretch out, inspire and reward their people. Flexibility means nimble responses.

    I have been working at Aerojet Rocketdyne full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    9/80 work week, 3 weeks vacation when you start, which increases the longer you are there, and an extended Christmas break when the entire plant shuts down.

    Cons

    When the best things are your not being there, you have a problem! They actively try to pigeon hole people. They slashed benefits recently, while somehow finding $500M to buy a dying competitor! I really feel sorry for the good people who have no escape plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as you would like to be treated.
