Pros: interesting work on rockets and launch systems
Cons: poor benefits, raises, healthcare, and treatment of exempt employees
This used to be a great place to work. Since adding the Rocketdyne name we have had layoffs and a furlough. They offer an attractive salary to get you in the door and then very small raises in subsequent years. Raises do not match rate of the cost of living going up. The Health Insurance has also gone down in quality; from a co-payment plan to a high deductable plan. The Union people here are treated better then the exempt employees. Many exempt employees were slated to cover for the Union people if they went on strike; but when they didn't strike, they announced exempt employee furloughs the next day. Union employees have gotten two 15% raises in the last four years and Exempt employees average about 2.5% raises.
