    I worked at Hamilton Sundstrand

    Pros

    I worked at the Rockford facility as a computer engineering co-op for about a year
    -Relaxed environment
    -Pays well
    -Get to work with latest aerospace technology

    Cons

    -Very bureaucratic -- have to work with legacy systems and software that is only still used because of contracts.
    -Hard to find work if you're a co-op. This is only made more difficult by the fact that the company looks down on indirectly charged hours, so it can be difficult finding people willing to give you a project to charge, meaning many times co-ops had to look outside their own department to find work.

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits, in-house full cafeteria.

    Cons

    Abusive supervisors and an unsympathetic Human Resources dept.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    High pay. Exposure to some cool aerospace technology. Some people can be pretty cool if you are willing to get to know them.

    Cons

    A lot of jobs are just boring. A lot of people seem unhappy with their work. Lots of long hours to satisfy emergency customer demands

    Advice to Management

    Emphasis on safety and quality should be continued. However, it should significantly be improved. There are to many errors that pass through quality oversights.

  9. Good company to work for

    I worked there soldering microscopic plane parts on a circuit board, this part was intersting, good atmosphere. Didn't work for them directly, I was contracted by a temporary job agency to work at Hamilton Sundstrand and they didn't renew me the contract.

    I wasn't there long enough to comment about this.

    Advice to Management

    None at the moment.

    Pros

    Good, smart people. Hard workers. We make cool stuff for the aviation and space industries. Lots of different positions (horizontally) and locations to choose from. Great co-op program for college students. Very good benefits package.

    Cons

    Chasing quarterly numbers resulted in weekly changes in program and project priorities. Lots of people in middle management limits upward growth. Applied for four department and program management positions and merited only one interview with 15+ years with the company in various positions. Or ... maybe I wasn't that good. East coast mentality that we were not smart enough to run a business was insulting.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the projects to proceed per plan. The constant re-prioritization affects delivery, quality and morale. Continue to work on communication of vision and strategy of the company and groups to the workers.
