While a quick paced industry, Cobham employees are collaborative so work load can seem less overwhelming
Material Handler III (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 21, 2018
Typical day for my stockroom would be coming in at 7am for 1st shift, log into SAP system and check emails and overnight material requisitions to fill first thing in the morning.
Assess any kitting needed for the day and cycle count any inventory returned overnight.
Notify inventory analysts if any cycle count discrepancies.
Regularly refresh SAP system to capture new requisitions.
LUNCH
Work on any special projects/assignments
Prepare notes and handover work to 2nd shift at end of day, sometimes stay the extra hour until 2nd shift arrives to cover anything too lengthy for an email.
Pros
Employee appreciation, diverse workforce, advancement.
Cons
Pay could be more competitive as well as parking space and lunch time alloted.

Electronic Technician II (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CA 92123October 7, 2018
The working condition in this company is not too bad. Most of the people are nice. Everyday is always busy to meet the quotes every month. So, too much overtime but it is compulsory. The only issue is the salary is quit low.
Pros
Good people around you

Low salary

Unsure at best
Electrical Technician (Current Employee) –  Exeter, NHAugust 20, 2018
It would seem that the folks who make decisions are unaware of what the folks who make them money really do for them. Little effort, but much hype is made to determine why one might not be happy but little is done to solve the root causes. Thus the skilled and talented tend to move on.
This is not really much different than several other companies but those are no longer so the comparison is not completely accurate..
Pros
employees are often treated as the adults they are
Cons
unsure of their futures

Good workers are being driven out
Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CA 95138April 29, 2018
The local management at Cobham is very good but the higher ups at corp started micromanaging the local sites. This has made a number of the managers and good employees leave the company. Most of the people that are left are either near retirement and aren't willing to leave.
Pros
The people are nice
Cons
Upper management is killing the company

Packing Operator (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CADecember 29, 2017
A typical day at my work is mostly sitting assembling my parts at my bench and or inspecting them under a microscope. The hardest part of my job is the length at which I have to be sitting and looking under the microscope.

If you need a job and some experience this is the place. Management is weak. No training. You are on your own from day one. Not much enjoyable there.

Clean, But overly Fast paced environment
Bencher (Current Employee) –  Exeter, NHNovember 1, 2017
Nice, Clean environment to work in, but initial training at start of job lacked dedicated person. Peers were very helpful and outgoing.
Having to go through staffing agency and adding a middle man made communication difficult.
