Administrative Assistant III (Current Employee) – Gainesville, VA – September 9, 2015
I have learned many different tasks during my 17+ years at Aerojet Rocketdyne including Excel, working with discretionary funds, business card applications and dealing with many different types of individuals.
Component Product Engineer (Project Engineer) (Former Employee) – Canoga Park, CA – February 5, 2018
Aerojet tends to hire lots a of contractors rather than direct hires which makes it difficult to determine if you will get hired full-time. The people at the company are great. I had a great time while working there.
Material Specialist (Former Employee) – Canoga Park, CA – January 24, 2018
It was a good place to work. It had good job security until the Space Shuttle program had ended in 2011. Company did not have enough other programs to retain the lay off Space Shuttle program employees. Great to meet and hear US astronauts' Space Shuttle mission presentations and felt pride and connection to the only Manned Flight space program.
Proud as a Space Shuttle team member
Did not have enough programs to retain Space Shuttle team member employees
Aerojet was an excellent place to work for the experience and the knowledge gaine
Manager of Pricing & Estimating (Former Employee) – Azusa, CA – January 10, 2018
I was a supervisor but also worked on the major, complex proposals. I converted the pricing from the mainframe to ProPricer which improved the submitted product, reduced the labor expended on the proposals and shortened the time to submit.
WA Material Handler (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – January 9, 2018
My manager literally said he wanted to go get icecream instead of doing my annual review. Who does that? I didnt stay here long after that. i would not recommend this. everyone is close and if your not apart of their "clique" your not really talked to or involved in anything.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Stennis Space Center, MS – January 1, 2018
Most of the people there have been there they’re whole career and don’t know anything else. The schedule (4x10’s) is nice but the management is whistling past the graveyard, they’re about to be overtaken by blue origin or spacex and don’t know how to course correct. They don’t pay most of the people well so all the profits must be going straight to California because they aren’t in Mississippi. They cut benefits often so be sure you now what you’re getting into. The management is a mixed bag, most of the competent ones don’t have any idea about current technology trends and that’s why they’re falling behind. They have an inflated view of their EHS program thinking that VPP means a whole lot. Stay away.
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Chatsworth, CA – December 27, 2017
Loved working here. Working on cutting edge technology at the world leaders in liquid rocket propulsion. The wealth of knowledge from employees working there for 30+ years was immense. Intimidating at first, but all my superiors were extremely helpful.
Admin Assistant (Former Employee) – Virginia – October 19, 2017
Great people at the local level with a large number of staff over 20 years there, but since the company has been bought (again) the upper management is too far removed from the "real business" of AR. Poor management, low appreciation and value for their employees from top level. Very top heavy organization.
pd week off between Christmas & New Years in lieu of some fed holidays
poor upper management - completely out of touch with those doing the real work of the organization.
