Stay busy and weekends off
Assembler 1 (Former Employee), Camden, ARJune 20, 2015
Pros: Weekends off
Cons: Long days, short breaks
This is a four day, ten hour job. It makes for long days but the weekends are worth it, not to mention the overtime that is possible. It has great benefits with accrued vacation and sick time. Most co-workers are easy to communicate with and work with.

Interesting and important work, but a grind
Improvement Project Manager (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJune 4, 2015
Work provides an opportunity to do interesting work while contribute to national defense and working alongside excellent people, however firefighting is a cultural norm and over time one may be expected to grind through the same problem many times. All said, treated me quite well.

A great technical organization if you exclude the management and all the fiascos that go on. The company requires visionary leadership which has been lacking for the last 20 years.

Program Material Planning Analyst (Current Employee), Rancho Cordova, CAOctober 3, 2014
Work life balance is excellent, but management is based on tenure and being in the "good ol boys club". Promotions are hard to get, even in the executive fast track.

It used to be a Great Place to Work
Senior Design Engineer (Current Employee), Sacramento, CAAugust 13, 2014
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.

Assember 2 (Former Employee), Camden, ARJuly 8, 2014
I liked working there. Some co-workers werent focused on our daily production. We dealt with explosives so I wasn't to thrilled with how the company handled that. While on the production floor, personal life shouldnt be talked about.
