Analyst (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 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.

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)
