Sr. Manufacturing Engineer V (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 25, 2019
Cobham is currently dependent on Engineers that have been with the company for many years. Cobham is trying to hire "talent" vs "experience" and sometimes that transition can be "interesting". I enjoy what I do, especially mentoring young Engineers.
Former employee (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 9, 2019
There is a reason they have huge turnover. Poor management, poor benefits, lack of training, 9/80 schedule doesn’t work. Half the people should be there every Friday yet on Friday the buildings are empty. Company doesn’t pay bills so constant line shut downs. Credit holds are out of control. Emails are out of control everyone cc’s everyone on emails and they don’t think twice about sending them. You take a day off and it takes a week to catch up on emails. Please look elsewhere and save yourself some grief. Life is better when you move on.
Plenty of raffles to win prizes, managers are always in meeting so you don’t see your boss to often.
Disorganized, Benefits, unequal treatment, parking, too many meetings, old technology.
Material Handler II (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA 92123 – December 28, 2018
the department I was in the manager was wrapped around these girls finger. they were all from the same city so they all got bye passes when it came to work. this group would play around while the rest of us had to pick up a lot of slack. and the leads were/are too afraid to say anything because they feel like they will be targeted. Very sad work place.
Customer Quality Assurance Tech/Clerical Assistant (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – November 18, 2018
I truly enjoyed my experience having to be a part of manufacturing advance electronics solutions for Semiconductors and Space Solutions. I'm going to miss everyone there and hope to see them again in the future, should I ever go back to Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Cafeteria onsite, fitness room onsite, etc...
Career advancement is extremely slow; almost discouraging.
Processor I (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 10, 2018
The one thing I liked about Cobham is that on my first day I'm already regular entitled to benefits. This company is well secured. Some people here work for more than 20 years. Which means there must be something good about this company. Every week there are positions open and everyone is encouraged to apply internally. The culture is wonderful as well.
A place to get a good startExample: Productive and fun workplace with ping pong table
Electronics Test Technician (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 14, 2018
Very stressful environment. Lack of leadership within the company and management is non existant. Was promised a certain pay but since it wasn't in my contract I never received it. Nor did the rest of my coworkers. I was pretty much swindled into taking a lower salary
Supply Chain Manager/Sr (Former Employee) – Hunt Valley, MD – September 3, 2018
Over all not a bad place to work. At time there was lack of direction and guidance. management was some what hands off. The only reason I left it that they where were going through tough time and I was laid off.
not to bad of a work enviroment
poor managemant in waht direction to take the company
Maitenance Technician (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 26, 2018
My job capacity at Cobham gave me the ability to work and learn at a relatively fast to moderate pace. The culture at the company is really good, they reward there employees that come up with ideas that increase production. Family oriented and friendly supervisors and managers, I would recommend this job to anyone.
Senior Cost & Pricing Analyst - Staff (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 24, 2018
Mgmt was only focused on how quick you could get work out, no discussion of potential impact to the morale and health of the workforce. Training was never offered, had to reverse engineer all processes.
I have skill sets in installing wire harness l missiles

Electronic Technician II (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 30, 2018
Working at Cobham was a good experience. My co-workers were very helpful and patient. I was on the fence before leaving because the work environment was relatively relaxed. But the pay was hard to equal cost of living in San Diego. I'm not sure how well it pays in the long run but a little low on the short run.
Procurement Assistant (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 30, 2018
Not a good place if you want to advance your career. Once the managers like you in the job you will not be able to move from the department. They have to much control over subordinates and HR is no help. Complaints don't get followed up with. Too much favoritism.
flexible hours, easy parking
no breaks-manipulation by managers, no advancement
full-time contract Paralegal (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – May 11, 2018
being part of the team, and working with others to collectively solve issues as a result of the project we were working on.
I enjoyed working with the people there, but unfortunately the project I was working on expired when the person leading the project left the company; then there was no work for me to do associated with this project, or any other position within the company to transfer to.
cookouts that involved the entire company to get to know them on an informal basis
the project I was working on was put on hold, and no other project available for me to stay there
