    Worst place I have worked.

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Aerojet's defense products are critical to the military.

    Cons

    I have an extensive professional experience in engineering, and Aerojet is the worst place I have worked. The company's management systems are old and make work inefficient and painful to execute. They don't even have single sign on as just a small example. Aerojet does not invest in technology that would make people more efficient. The culture is horrible. Hearing people curse and cry on phone calls was not uncommon. Aerojet does not operate in true IPTs and there is not sufficient support from many disciplines to the program team. Understaffing is creating huge stress on the organization.nI am happy I left
