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.

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.
Great management. Great coworkers. Great benefits. Regular work hours. Opportunities to cross-train and advance if you are so inclined. I worked about a year and a half at their radar factory in Exeter NH and I have no complaints, only good things to say about the place. Facility was clean and safety was a big focus. Management CARES about employees. Coworkers are knowledgeable and helpful.
Discounted lunch in cafeteria, good pay, good work/life balance, supportive environment, great managers, good benefits
