Working to meet the needs of employees
Human Resources Administrator 4 (Current Employee) –  Camden, ARMarch 11, 2017
A typical day at work is to complete task based on urgency. I am always willing to listen to the needs of others and seek alterative ways reach a win win result for employer and employee. The hardest part of the job is conflicting information dissemination . The most rewarding part of the job is working with people to bring out good qualities and establish trusting relations.

Government oriented work and work rules.
Procurement Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chatsworth, CAFebruary 6, 2017
Government oriented work and work rules. lots of paperwork related to Gov't. requirements. You must track your time per the project you are working on, etc. The pace is slow. If this doesn't bother you it's probably a great place to work.

Great People but company is lacking moral
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Sacramento, CAJanuary 10, 2017
The people here are great however the company is shrinking and relocating to other sites.

There doesn't seem to be a bright future for the Sacramento facility and the company is not doing anything to maintain the employees. It feels as if the company is taking away previous fringe benefits in hopes that we will voluntarily leave rather than be laid off and receive any sort of severance package.
Pros
9/80 schedule and end of year shut down
Cons
benefit packages, reduction of "fringe benefits"

Wait for the dust to settle!
Material Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Redmond, WAApril 26, 2016
The company's products are becoming less competitive due to high cost. Aerojet Rocketdyne still has a huge market foothold, as many of their products are heritage. However, other commercial companies are challenging the industry status quo.

Many of the new competitors are much better funded and are taking good talent away from the company.

Recent layoff has made conditions worse as many have less confidence in their career path. This has driven more to leave (in additional to the layoff)
Cons
Great talent is leaving in droves
