Senior Structural Engineer (Current Employee) –  Rancho Cordova, CAOctober 1, 2018
I really enjoyed Aerojet Rocketdyne for the benefits, however these seem to me diminishing as time went on to save costs. The people you work with are great. Managements prefers to hire out for the upper positions versus hire within.
Pros
work/life balance

Thaad and Atlas Program, Inspector Mechanical GD&T (Current Employee) –  Sacramento, CASeptember 21, 2018
The hardest part of the job is getting fellow workers to read the quality procedures. I have to read them as I enforce them.
The most enjoyable part of the job is my fellow co-workers. They can joke and have fun while still doing their job.
Pros
Great health benefits

It was a very dismal place to work.
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Rancho Cordova, CASeptember 18, 2018
The buildings are so old they had asbestos warning signs everywhere, The bathrooms were constantly getting flooded. The carpets are filthy and never cleaned unless there was a special executive in house or external customers coming in. The employees felt like they were being treated like second hand citizens walking around waiting to hear when it was there turn to lose their job. The company has other plans than to treat their employees in Rancho Cordova with respect and optimism. They are more interested in building their job site in Huntsville, Alabama, Canoga Park, CA and El Segundo, CA offices. It is a very sad place to work.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Low esteem

Enjoyed my time there for the overwhelming part.
Logistics review and accountability (Former Employee) –  Rancho Cordova, CASeptember 17, 2018
Company level departments suffer from micro-management, watching every move. Corporate level supervised but as long as you produced, let you run your own show.

I learned a great deal concerning chemicals, logistics, and computer functions, to include cyber systems.

The hardest part of the job was to see unqualified personnel promoted because they were "yes" people.

The good part was there are multitudes of fine people employed there.
Pros
Good pay, benefits, professional atmosphere.
Cons
So much internal coordination it got things lost.
