"Overall, pretty good. The company has a good ethical foundation and a good culture of following processes. The IT organization is a fun place to work, with knowledgeable people who are easy to work with."

"Very poor company to work for. The management is incompetent. They only look out for themselves and are unreasonable. The company provided medic is an idiot and after my experiences I am sure their safety record is much worse than they claim. I wouldn't recommend working here for any reason. The pay is awful when looking at comparable jobs."

Woodward Employee
in Valencia, CA

"I work in Woodward since 2008, I have grown so much since then. I love what I do and I enjoy helping my peers every time I can. The company produces aerospace hardware for many commercial companies as well as military. It is growing rapidly, there is always something to do and time goes by very fast, which I like very much because I look forward to go to work every day. It is just I would love to stop commuting every day and work close home."
