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
Nimrod (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 21, 2018
Horrendous company - there are a couple of workplace bullies that seem to "rule the roost" while the rest of the company has to "bow and stoop" to their demands. There is no actual management; it's all seat of pants.
Run, run away as fast as you can!
Cons: Horrible management that does not have your back.
Shipping Coordinator (Current Employee) – Huntington Beach, CA – February 13, 2018
Overall, I do enjoy working for Cobham regardless of the hard to deal with co-workers. If there is anything to improve, it would have to be an avid and consistent employee insight program. A place meant to progress and innovate is being held back by stubborn veteran employees (25 + years) who feel now that they've put the time, they no longer have an obligation to put in full effort towards success. All in all, it pays the bills, days go by quick and i get a Friday off every other week so its enough to bite my tongue and keep doing my job.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Huntington Beach, CA – January 12, 2018
Hostile work environment, passive aggressive and vindictive management. High employee turn over Hard work is rewarded with lies and criticism Human Reaources isn’t familiar with the word human, and is the cancer Throughout the organization. Their open door policy is the exit door. The Huntington Beach facility has been on a rapid decline starting he day Cobham purchased the company.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Cobham, – January 8, 2018
Terrible company to work for. Very limited room to growth for someone who don't have a family member or a close friend in management. From supervisors to management, they all know someone or have a close relative. Employees are underpaid asked to work long hours. I worked there for two years and only got 2 cents increase. Very poor management.
Company as a whole is great. Huge divide from upper management to lower management. Great work, just a run very poorly. Company doesn't listen to the guys actually doing the production work. Makes irrational decisions. Not a good place to work.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – October 11, 2017
The last several years the company has gone completely downhill. Most of the people that work there are great, but management sucks. They hire upper management contractors that are all friends that have no clue what they are doing and getting paid ridiculous amounts of money. If you are not in their clique you don't matter. I worked there for over 10 years and the company has gone down hill over the past 5 years. The raises are non-existent. The last raise most people received was 1% to 1.5%. Some people didn't even get a raise. I wouldn't recommend this company at all.
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – October 8, 2017
Unless your in the clique, forget about any advancement. Very poor performers are regularly advanced over high performers. I can say this since I worked there over 10 years. Finally got fed up and moved on.
NDT Level II Inspector (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – October 5, 2017
A cut throat business that paid well but has a poor management core. Benefits are acceptable. The place lacks moral and valves and will do just about anything to make a buck. Resent trouble with the corporate office proves this fact.
Poor valves, Quality is only number 1 on paper or until it slows down production
ELECTRICAL TEST TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Naples, FL – September 24, 2017
The hours and benefits are great for this company. It is a slow paced environment but very competitive to impress management. Raises are terrible IF you get one and the managers don't care or micromanage.
