I worked at Woodward full-time (More than 10 years)
High tech employer with a great many opportunities for smart hard working dedicated people.
They have high expectations of employees and the pressure to perform can be intense. Much of their work is on leading edge projects and require advanced or specialized degrees.
Advice to Management
None, they are doing a good job.
I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Woodward (Chicago, IL).
Applied online after school career fair. Heard back ~2 weeks later. Very calm interview. Just the usual questions about projects youve worked on and your preferred coding language. Started with a phone screen and then went on to a phone interview with the project manager for the software group.
