    Pros

    It was my first job (hired on as an intern in college, started full time after graduation). A lot of people there were lifers and seemed to not mind the place. It was a pretty relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    I didn't learn much about engineering. Most of the focus was on lean manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to hire engineers, put them in engineering jobs.

    Pros

    The company ran by the lean manufacturing culture. I learned a lot about continuous improvement and the different workflows the company had within their departments.

    Cons

    They were bought out by UTC and I heard from there their culture at some extent was diminishing.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better guidance on new employees.

    Pros

    Great engineering opportunities. I worked in Software Engineering was able to be part of some pretty interesting projects. Educational opportunities encouraged.

    Cons

    Management is always chasing the next big contract, which is true of any big contractor. Still, the ups and downs that come with that do not provide a sense of stability.

    Pros

    Good, predictable hours, opportunity for suggesting improvement.

    Cons

    Very 5S / organization intensive culture to the point of irritating some less organized (but hard-working and effective) employees. Can be difficult to see the "big picture" as a subcontractor. Some machinists didn't realize how critical their work was and how easily parts can be scrapped from "slight" damage.

    Advice to Management

    Discuss issues with employees more often. Don't stay bunkered inside your office for weeks on end.

    Pros

    Good benefits package and ability to move up.

    Cons

    Chaotic work environment requires patience and ability to be flexible. Can affect work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Promote problem solvers who care about fixing real issues and not resume builders/empty suits. There are enough of those already.
