    I have been working at Aerojet Rocketdyne full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a challenging and rewarding place to work. You are empowered to do your job. It offers a wide range of programs to work on.

    Cons

    There is a lot of travel to the Camden, AR site. Management is closing the Gainesville, VA and Sacramento, CA sites and relocating most to Huntsville, AL. I do not have a sense of a strong future with this company. The strategy seems to be cut and cheapen rather than improve and innovate. New leadership does not inspire confidence for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Consider changing cost improvement strategy to focus on improvement rather than trying to lean everything out so much that getting the job done is near impossible under current constraints.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne.

    Interview

    Applied, they contacted me after a month. Set up a phone interview. Lasted 40 minutes. I talked with two other people and they asked basic questions. Was very comfortable--my favorite interview to date.
